Hey Chris, thanks for the feedback. I don't know where couchdb indexes are physically stored. So I don't know how to delete them. But I have attached ini files for:

The JSON I get back from 'http://localhost:5984/baron/_fti/' is:
{"error":"not_found","reason":"missing"}

I've included the log file (couch.log - DEBUG level) and there is indeed a recurring error that is populating the logs:

I would paste your couchdb and couchdb-lucene ini files. Sounds like
it isn't finding the FTI engine. One way you can check that is to go
to http://localhost:5984/baron/_fti/ and see if you get the
information on the index. Also make sure lucene is indexing docs when
you write them, you can check that by deleting the index then cd'n to
that directory and make sure new files get written when you try to
search. Just some troubleshooting tips from my own findings.
