WSS - Search Indexer

If you get the following error when trying to run a search on a WSS site:

Your search cannot be completed because this site is not assigned to an indexer. Contact your administrator for more information.

You'll need to set the indexer on the content database of the site collection. This is done by going to the Central Adminstration > Application Management > Content Databases.

In the Search Server option, choose the Indexer which you want to index your site. Then give it time to index.
