I have just setup an instance of Sharepoint 2013 foundation and created a new site with a couple files on it, the problem is that that the search service always reports "Searchable Items: 0", I'm new to sharepoint and tried to look at the log file but it is simply huge, there are new log file entries almost every second and I can't seem to find a usable error message. I appreciate any help that could help me find the problem with the search crawler. Thanks, Paulo

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Start with permissions, does the default crawl account have access to the content. Next look at crawl logs. I don't spend any time in Foundation, but in Server you can review the crawl logs for the content source and get an idea of what is going on.
