Hello HtDig Folks

I am having some trouble with configuring htdig it
seems to be ignoring some of the servers that I have
listed using limit_urls dont know why. But if I
include the main server name, under limit_urls is does
index them

www.csv.warwick.ac.uk

but of course I get a double count.

Heres hopefully enough of the conf file to maybe
give a clue as to whats going wrong?

start_url: http://www.warwick.ac.uk/

limit_urls_to: ${start_url} http://www.astro.warwick.ac.uk/ \
http://www.bio.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/ \
http://www.eng.warwick.ac.uk/ http://law.bio.warwick.ac.uk/ \
http://www.maths.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.phys.warwick.ac.uk/ \
http://www.wbs.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.hosp.warwick.ac.uk/ \
http://www.conferences.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.unitemps.warwick.ac.uk/ \
#http://www.csv.warwick.ac.uk/ \

exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi /warnes/ /templates/ /server_stats \
              /logs/ /img/ \

Many thanks
Sara

Full htdig.conf attached.

# # Example config file for ht://Dig. # # This configuration file is used by all the programs that make up ht://Dig. # Please refer to the attribute reference manual for more details on what # can be put into this file. (http://www.htdig.org/confindex.html) # Note that most attributes have very reasonable default values so you # really only have to add attributes here if you want to change the defaults. # # What follows are some of the common attributes you might want to change. #

# # Specify where the database files need to go. Make sure that there is # plenty of free disk space available for the databases. They can get # pretty big. # database_dir: /usr/local/htdig/db

# # This specifies the URL where the robot (htdig) will start. You can specify # multiple URLs here. Just separate them by some whitespace. # The example here will cause the ht://Dig homepage and related pages to be # indexed. # You could also index all the URLs in a file like so: # start_url: `${common_dir}/start.url` # # start_url: http://www.htdig.org/ start_url: http://www.warwick.ac.uk/

# # This attribute limits the scope of the indexing process. The default is to # set it to the same as the start_url above. This way only pages that are on # the sites specified in the start_url attribute will be indexed and it will # reject any URLs that go outside of those sites. # # Keep in mind that the value for this attribute is just a list of string # patterns. As long as URLs contain at least one of the patterns it will be # seen as part of the scope of the index. # limit_urls_to: ${start_url} http://www.astro.warwick.ac.uk/ \ http://www.bio.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.dcs.warwick.ac.uk/ \ http://www.eng.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.law.warwick.ac.uk/ \ http://www.maths.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.phys.warwick.ac.uk/ \ http://www.wbs.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.hosp.warwick.ac.uk/ \ http://www.conferences.warwick.ac.uk/ http://www.unitemps.warwick.ac.uk/ \

#http://www.csv.warwick.ac.uk/ \

# # If there are particular pages that you definately do NOT want to index, you # can use the exclude_urls attribute. The value is a list of string patterns. # If a URL matches any of the patterns, it will NOT be indexed. This is # useful to exclude things like virtual web trees or database accesses. By # default, all CGI URLs will be excluded. (Note that the /cgi-bin/ convention # may not work on your web server. Check the path prefix used on your web # server.) # exclude_urls: /cgi-bin/ .cgi /warnes/ /templates/ /server_stats/ \ /logs/ /img/ \ # /~

# # Since ht://Dig does not (and cannot) parse every document type, this # attribute is a list of strings (extensions) that will be ignored during # indexing. These are *only* checked at the end of a URL, whereas # exclude_url patterns are matched anywhere. # bad_extensions: .wav .gz .z .sit .au .zip .tar .hqx .exe .com .gif \ .jpg .jpeg .aiff .class .map .ram .tgz .bin .rpm .mpg .mov .avi \ .ra .ram .rm .fli .flc .css .ppt .pdf \ # # The string htdig will send in every request to identify the robot. Change # this to your email address. # maintainer: www@csv.warwick.ac.uk

# # The excerpts that are displayed in long results rely on stored information # in the index databases. The compiled default only stores 512 characters of # text from each document (this excludes any HTML markup...) If you plan on # using the excerpts you probably want to make this larger. The only concern # here is that more disk space is going to be needed to store the additional # information. Since disk space is cheap (! :-)) you might want to set this # to a value so that a large percentage of the documents that you are going # to be indexing are stored completely in the database. At SDSU we found # that by setting this value to about 50k the index would get 97% of all # documents completely and only 3% was cut off at 50k. You probably want to # experiment with this value. # Note that if you want to set this value low, you probably want to set the # excerpt_show_top attribute to false so that the top excerpt_length characters # of the document are always shown. # # max_head_length: 10000 max_head_length: 512

excerpt_show_top: yes

# # To limit network connections, ht://Dig will only pull up to a certain limit # of bytes. This prevents the indexing from dying because the server keeps # sending information. However, several FAQs happen because people have files # bigger than the default limit of 100KB. This sets the default a bit higher. # (see <http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html> for more) # #max_doc_size: 200000 max_doc_size: 1000000

# # Most people expect some sort of excerpt in results. By default, if the # search words aren't found in context in the stored excerpt, htsearch shows # the text defined in the no_excerpt_text attribute: # (None of the search words were found in the top of this document.) # This attribute instead will show the top of the excerpt. # no_excerpt_show_top: true

# # Depending on your needs, you might want to enable some of the fuzzy search # algorithms. There are several to choose from and you can use them in any # combination you feel comfortable with. Each algorithm will get a weight # assigned to it so that in combinations of algorithms, certain algorithms get # preference over others. Note that the weights only affect the ranking of # the results, not the actual searching. # The available algorithms are: # exact # endings # metaphone # prefix # soundex # synonyms # By default only the "exact" algorithm is used with weight 1. # Note that if you are going to use the endings, metaphone, soundex, # or synonyms algorithms, you will need to run htfuzzy to generate # the databases they use. # search_algorithm: exact:1 synonyms:0.5 endings:0.1

# # The following are the templates used in the builtin search results # The default is to use compiled versions of these files, which produces # slightly faster results. However, uncommenting these lines makes it # very easy to change the format of search results. # See <http://www.htdig.org/hts_templates.html for more details. # # template_map: Long long ${common_dir}/long.html \ # Short short ${common_dir}/short.html # template_name: long

# # The following are used to change the text for the page index. # The defaults are just boring text numbers. These images spice # up the result pages quite a bit.
