htdig is indexing software similar in concept to Swish-e. It isn’t usually installed out of the box with Linux, but it should be an easily build. Htdig retrieves HTML documents using the HTTP protocol and gathers information This allows the original files to be used by htsearch during the indexing run. This class is meant to interface with the Ht:/Dig programs to be able to index and search Web pages from PHP. It features: Setup a suitable.

A sure sign of this is if the current size of your database is much larger than the total size of the site you are indexing, or if in the verbose output of htdig see question 4. Whether reporting problems to the bug database or mailing list, we cannot stress enough the importance of always indicating which version of ht: Search results pages produced indexig HtDig use graphics provided by HtDig.

If you have a problem with a robots meta tag in a document see question 4. Unfortunately, far too many users have needlessly latched onto this option for CGI scripts. Note that you will need a C compiler and a running Web server in order to use the software this tutorial uses GCC 3. All Any Boolean Format: In any case, you must figure out the reason htdig keeps revisiting the same documents using different URLs, as explained in question 4. Every time a search is executed, this database is scanned for matches to insexing search string and a list of results retrieved.

There are a lot of them, but chances are there’s something that might fit your needs.

The tricky part is to make sure your htsearch program is secure. You’d need to work out an equivalent configuration for your server if you’re not running Apache. This program uses the -T option as a record separator rather than an alternate temporary directory. Finally, I showed you how you could use ht: For any of the scoring factors you can configure, and which are used by htdig, you will have to reindex your documents so the new factors take effect.


Conversely, there is no way to force htdig to index URL components so that a search for a file name will yield a match on that file, unless you index an HTML file or several containing links to all the files you want, where the link description text does contain the full URL or the pathname components you want. See the documentation for all default values for attributes not overridden in the configuration file, and for help on using any of them.

There are three common causes of this. External parser scripts tend to be hacks that don’t recognize a lot of the parsing attributes in your htdig. It is the opinion of the developers that this is the preferred method. Phrase searching has been added for the 3. The solution is to use the BSD library’s own rx code instead, using version 3. In particular, take a look at the list of configuration attributes, particularly the list by name and by program.

The simple answer is that, unlike some mailing lists, the lists on SourceForge don’t force replies back on the list. They volunteer for the benefit of the whole ht: We do not advocate using acroread any longer because it is a proprietary product.

Over the last few pages, I introduced you to the ht: This means rerunning the “rundig” script, or running “htdig -i” and htmerge or htpurge in the 3. So, counterarguments to this policy are rather moot, and it would be better not to waste indexinv more mailing list bandwidth debating them.

Drop by the official ht: There is a bug in Adobe Acrobat Reader version 4, in its handling of the -pairs option, which causes a segmentation violation when using it with htdig 3. Alternatively, you can put indexin secure undexing, let’s call it htssearch, in the same cgi-bin, but protect that one CGI program in your server configuration, e. If you are running Apache under Solaris, or another system that may be using shared libraries in non-standard locations, first try the solution described in question 3.


If it’s there, modify it instead of adding another definition. That depends htdkg whether you want to protect certain parts of your site from prying eyes, or just limit the scope of search results to certain relevant areas.

Long Short Sort by: The next best thing is to host them on the same site, but make sure that everything is very clearly separated to prevent any leakage of secure data. If you are running under Solaris, see 3.

See Behind the Scenes with JavaScript for a htdiig of the technique, which applies equally well to in-line style sheets. This allows you to avoid all the complexities of setting an environment variable for a CGI program ineexing from the server. This utility also takes care of generating the hdig page, as per the formatting parameters specified. Note also that when you reply to a message on the list, you should make sure the reply gets on the list as well, provided your reply is still on-topic.

The other technique you can use, if you want the directory index to be made by the web server, is to get the server to insert the robots meta tag into the index page it generates. This class is meant to interface with the Ht: If you don’t find any appropriate locales indexlng on your system, try obtaining and installing the locale definition files from your OS distribution.

Another possibility, if none of the error messages above appear for some of the links you think htdig should be accepting, is that htdig isn’t even finding the links at all.

Most versions are also distributed as a patch to the previous version’s source code. Your configuration may differ, however. To enable web server access, add the following:.
