Update on: File Replacement problem

From: Patrick Durusau <pdurusau(at)>

The original problem was really dumb, forgetting to use the proper
syntax on replace (as in not removing "replacementrules", yes, very
funny. ;-) Still, that is a mistake I won't repeat!

But, I now can't get the index to run: 

Error message:

Indexing Data Source: "File-System"
Bad directive on line #47: replace "/data/"

The file rewrite rule that I am using reads:

replace "/data/" ""

The absolute path to the directory I want to index is:


I even tried replacing /data with /data, but got the same error message.

I have run Swish in various versions on both Linux and Solaris and have
never had this much trouble getting Swish up and running. If it rings
any bells, I am running this on an Immunix 6.2 (hardened version of
RedHat 6.2). 

Many thanks!
