How to change the PHPcode to change the minimum characters to 3 in [product search field] of [mod_virtuemart]
The records i have are above 115000.
(When searching with none character i get the following error
Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 10 seconds exceeded in C:\domains\ ...wwwroot\libraries\joomla\database\database\mysql.php on line 224)

Thanks for replay, Jos

Different problem, same request.
I have items named like "Base per anello". When I search "Base" nothing is found. When I search "Base p" many products are found. This is because there is a minimum of 6 characters for the search module to work.
I found this article:
 but this is for VM 1.x.

What should I edit to change this minimum (let's say, to 3 characters) in VM2.x?

Thank you in advance.
