So to index non-html files i should install htdig v3.2? Any other
adjustments, eg, to my .conf file, likely to be needed?

Non-html file indexing can't be done with v3.1.5? It says "Both HTML
documents and plain text files can be searched" under Features at

I added
valid_extensions: .html .htm .shtml .sql .txt
to my v3.1.5 .conf file but that didn't help.

thank you,
