I did create a swish.conf file in the directory where the files are located
prior to actually running the swish-e command.
Here is the syntax of the file:

IndexDir	/www
StoreDescription HTML* <body> 200000
MetaNames swishdocpath swishtitle

/usr/local/bin/swish-e -c swish.conf -v 3

run a query. That's when this problem with the index.swish-e and no results
