You have to use the ReplaceRules in the config file to form the URL from the
filename.  Then reindex the site.  It can't really know the URL without you
telling it.  You can either form a relative URL or an absolute.  I prefer
the relative URL, because, you don't have to reindex the site for other

ReplaceRules replace "/some/" "/some/other/"
ReplaceRules replace "/some/" "http://yourhost/some/"

a url that consists of the absolute unix path to the file, not the

I am sure I am missing something simple in the configuration file or setup,
or config.h etc.

How do get swish to return the full URL and port if needed?
