Large forum searching

I have a forum with 500,000 comments, and I'm getting timeouts when trying to search it. I tried installing memcached, didn't seem to help. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get the search features working without issue? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, 500k discussions, not comments

    I just installed SphinxSearch to see if that would help... I think the main search bar is just broken, because I see sphinx queries in the log, but they're never returned to the forum... and I know sphinx is working because it displays related discussions if I open up a discussion.

    Any ideas on what would just cause the search box to straight up not work? Is there a specific dependency for that to work correctly that I may have missed?

    Did you get the indexing working and is the search daemon running on the server?
