Thanks to all for these tips. I checked the Apache logs - no errors reported.
As in other messages on the list (including another current one from Tim Barrett, the 
problem is that Swish-e is not working correctly from the CGI file, although it works just 
fine from the command line.

It is not producing errors, it just reports back no results!

I think that this means that Swish-E is indeed reading the index file (there is only the one 
I created on the server...) but somehow is not producing any results. There have been 
other threads on this list dealing with the same problems, but no solutions have been 

Does anyone know what the $params variable in John Millard's script is for? What 
parameters can be passed via this line?

Still puzzled....
