Index deleted after YaCy restart


I am trying to use YaCy to manage my bookmarks following the excellent idea here. It’s running in Robinson mode on a private peer and it works well.

However, when I restart YaCy (using sudo systemctl restart yacy.service as the Restart button in Administration doesn’t restart YaCy), all indexed pages get deleted. Or simply by restarting the computer. Although the number of indexed pages stays in the URL Database Administration, these pages no longer come up in my search queries.

YaCy is running on Arch Linux and I installed it through the AUR.

Do you have an explanation/solution for this problem?


Never mind me. I have installed YaCy according to the instructions on its website (that is NOT from the AUR) and the data now remains even after restart.
