Well it finally finished about 1 hour after i sent the first E-mail. To my
surprise the databases are approx 150 meg. I had figured on at least 500 meg. I
am using the ht://Dig 3.2.0b2. I think it's the beta version. As far as the
time it took, i ran vmstat and top while inthe process and my hardware is a
definate factor. The processor is slow...ram is low. Basicly I ran out of
memory then started swapping out to disk..then became i/o bound waiting on I/O.
I have a 4 cylinder when I need a V8. :>) .
Any how I will upgrade later...
Another question .. after the htdig/htmerge I pasted the search.html into the
index.html file. Then I played a game of who has permission. Finally I got it
to work...Approx 1-2 hours messin around. I notice that what ever i search on
the result "Scores" are all the same 1 star. Also the "Sort by Title" is out of
order. Is this a bug or a bad setup by me?
