Subject: Indexing error?
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"


I am using htDig supplied by Mindspring (our ISP) and their techs also are
stumped as to why I can't get htDig to work. I'm hoping someone here can
help. :-)

I am trying to index a specific subdirectory on our web site and all of its
'child' subdirectories. htdig indexes if I use the default start_url for
the main index.html but will not go into the subdirectories.

If I change the start_url to I get the
following error:

   New server:, 80
   htdig: Run complete
   htdig: 1 server seen:
   htdig: 0 documents
  htmerge: Unable to open word list file

Any ideas? The default config only contains a few lines:

database_dir: /web/u84/wfp14994/htdig/db
limit_urls_to: ${start_url}
exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi
max_head_length: 10000
search_algorithm: exact:1 synonyms:0.5 endings:0.1
