Geoff,

Thanks for your help. I noticed something while I was trailing through the logs today, while the cron job was doing it's business messages claimed out of memory. So I am obviously running out of resources here. But since this didn't result in a halt during console but did during the cron is that then the problem?
(rundig halted during cron but not in console logged in as root)
The search engine works fine when I run rundig in console, but does NOT work at all when run during cron. Hope that clearyfies any bad wording from my side :)

Thanks,

The rundig script calls htdig, then htmerge and then (if necessary)
htfuzzy synonyms and htfuzzy endings. The last two steps are usually
only needed once. So if you're using rundig as your cron job, it's
calling what it needs.

(If you want the script I use myself as a cron job, see
<http://www.htdig.org/files/contrib/scripts/rundig.sh>

It would be very helpful if you could give us a listing (with
permissions) of your database directory.

And I'm very curious as to your statement that the search engine
works fine, when the error message you reported said that db.words.db
did not exist. This file is absolutely necessary to perform searches!
