How to rebuild text index
In the case your search index, also known as text index is trashed, there is an nice script in the maintenance directory within the mediawiki directory. It is called:

- enough time - it can run for hours at big databases.
Will it be possible to just use "REPAIR TABLE searchindex QUICK" like suggested on http://www.mysql.org/doc/refman/5.1/en/fulltext-search.html ?
