Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top
  1. I've made sure the Foundation Service and Search related services are turned on
  2. I've made sure the file type is valid
  3. I've made sure Crawl is configured
  4. Select Microsoft SharePoint Foundation search server (I've specified this on each content database)
  5. The CRAWL is showing as successful

I'm at the end of my tether, I really can't figure this out? Internal Server Error exception keeps popping up when a srarch is made.

Have you checked the event viewer for erros on the sharepoint server evrytime you do a search? – user7400 Jan 23 '13 at 15:35

Are you using any Term Stored? Have you configured the Search Scopes?? Have you tried using FAST Search Tool to verify it's not the problem from SharePoint side??
