I have an intranet built on SP 2010. Everything works except the Search feature (not using FAST Search).

My content source is Local SharePoint Sites, crawls return 40k+ results.

However, when I search, I always get the following error:

Internal server error exception:
Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.
Correlation ID: 7ef88eb0-47d5-4e0f-b5cf-177ebca4a6df
Date and Time: 6/25/2014 3:40:13 PM

This seems to be very ambiguous, and I've seen dozens of postings with similar search problems, but no consistent remedy for the situation.

share the logs.
