There are several files that need to be updated at once. If you run
the script "rundig" that was installed with ht://Dig it will update
your databases. However, since you can't search and index on the
databases at the same time, you probably want to do this on copies of
your database.

If you are using version 3.1.5 of ht://Dig, you can run "rundig -a"
and this will work on alternate or "work" copies of the databases. If
you're using an older version, I highly suggest that you take this
opportunity to upgrade.

If pages are no longer present, they will be removed from the
databases automatically when updating them. For this reason, most
people set periodic update jobs using the cron program.
