Subject: Indexing error?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I am using htDig through mindspring and their techs also are stumped by my
problem, and suggested I "ask htDig". I'm hoping someone here can help...<G>.
I am trying to index a specific (/support) directory on our web site and
all of its included subdirectories. htdig indexes if I use the default
start_url of http://wfp14994.w1.com/
However, it only indexes the main directory, none of the subdirectories. I
initially had .htaccess enabled for some sections, so took those out and
tried again -- still no indexing of the subdirectories.
If I change the start_url to http://wfp14994.w1.com/support/ I get the
> New server: www.wfp14994.w1.com, 80
> htdig: Run complete
> htdig: 1 server seen:
> htdig: www.wfp14994.w1.com:80 0 documents
> htmerge: Unable to open word list file
The tech folks at mindspring have tried several workarounds which I've
listed at the end of this message. Any ideas? The default config only
contains a few lines:
exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi
search_algorithm: exact:1 synonyms:0.5 endings:0.1
Following are the solutions already attempted by the techs at mindspring:
> I tried assigning the start_url: right to the index.html file
>in the support/ directory. That didn't work. I also totally commented
>out limit_urls_to: so that it wouldn't limit it at all. No go there either.
>If I set start_url: http://www.wfp14994.w1.com/
