You don't mention what path your databases should be in. As it stands,
htmerge is looking for (probably called with -a) and
can't find it at all. So you won't get anything useful for search results
because the proper db aren't being generated.

That's not the core problem--you also don't seem to be getting through to
www.*****.com: note the "0 documents" in the stats!

So I'd first resolve the problem indexing. What do you see when you run it
with -vvv? Why isn't it getting through? Then I'd worry about whether the
paths are right, etc.
