Seafile 6.2.7 Indexing won't update anymore


my SeafileServer won’t update my indexes. If i try to update or clear the indexes manually i get some errors see below.

[seafile@ArchNAS pro]$ python2.7 search --update

Updating search index, this may take a while...

No handlers could be found for logger "seafes"

And what is in seafile.conf? Are permissions correct (is the file readable for Seafile?)?

Thanks for replay.

Changing the value doesn’t take effect

I’m using sqlite not mysql. Is that a cause?

sqlite is not supported for pro edition.

The Database was the problem.
For Support i switch back to CE-Version. Migrate from sqlite to mysql. Upgrade to Pro-Version.

The error does not occur anymore.

If users upgrade from CE to Pro a notice for requirement of mysql would be nice.

Very helpful for me:

Edit: Migrating from Pro sqlite to Pro mysql its possible by following the steps from the Link above but make a fresh mysql installation from seafile-PRO instead seafile-CE.
