Re: Cannot index my site

Let's try something... In spiderfuncs.php, starting at line 136, see: if (mbsubstr($url, 0, 5) == "https") { $target = "ssl://".$host; } else { $target = $host; } Add a line so it looks like: if (mbsubstr($url, 0, 5) == "https") { $target = "ssl://".$host; } e...

Re: Cannot index my site

Spaces in filenames can be a real pain. Windows based servers typically replace a space with a "%20", but Linux?UNIX servers do not. At this point, the initial error was likely indeed a URL name that resulted in a corrupted file pointer during the fsockopen. My advice is to rename files wi...

Re: Keyword question

Yes, there are many keywords. Now imagine the number of link (page) to keyword relationships. That is why there are 1...

Re: Keyword question

Key factors in weighting is location (title, domain, path, meta tags, and body) and number of occurrences. The keyword weighting remains just as it was when Ando Saabas left it. I have not had the courage to screw with it, although I can't say I always feel it is ideal. For example, one particular c...

I have also been working on the next version of Sphider, and created a new database instance for it. When testing, I tried indexing my blog. 301 errors!!! several ti...
