I downloaded and installed Rainer's swish-e 1.3.2 enhanced with filter
I compiled it and everything works fine (html and pdf are indexed),
provided I index using the FS method.
However, when I try to index a site using the HTTP method, the PDF files
don't get indexed and, often, swish-e-filter dumps core.
When I try to index a site using the HTTP method, I make the following
changes to the .config file
comment out directives under "DIRECTIVES FOR FILESYSTEM ONLY"
set under "DIRECTIVES for HTTP METHOD ONLY"
SpiderDirectory /usr/local/www/cgi-bin/swish-bin/ (this works when I
use standard swish-e to index both HTTP and FS methods)
Are there any other changes I should make? Anyone encounter this before?
I'm completely stumped, and would really like to get this to work as my
school's site is significantly increasing the use of PDF documents on
Thanks in advance for any assistance,
