Re: Trouble installing

Create a PHP script. Although the name doesn't really matter, I suggest "info.php." It will contain the following code: <?php phpinfo(); ?> Load this to your server and run it from a browser. It will provide details on your PHP installation. Scroll down through the list of installed PHP mo...

Re: Fulltxt field

Sphider does remove multiple white space. It also tries to preserve the original page as much as possible. Since Sphider is open source, it is possible to edit out multiple occurrences of "\r\n". This would be done in spiderfuncs.php. EDIT: It also happens to be that "\r\n" is no...

Re: First impressions - Am I missing something?

Sphider Pro I have no experience with. Development seems to have stopped. Sphider Plus I have looked at. It is much more full featured than the original Sphider. Since development on the original Sphider was suspended, I took over to keep it running in a modern environment. Sphider was intended as a...

Re: search.php on line 446 generating not permitted warning

Curious. My installation does have the gd module installed, but I don't THINK I use any of its functions. Of course, the only way I could know that for sure is to disable it and see if any errors pop up. Sphider is able to index and search images without Imagick, but there would be no way to calcula...

Re: search.php on line 446 generating not permitted warning

Indexing hangs are a thorn in my side! It seems the causes vary from setup to setup. There have been cases where it seems to be a web server configuration issue, cases where MySQL (or MariaDB) settings were an issue. Shared hosting has been an issue. Then I've had scenarios when NONE OF THE ABOVE ap...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

With the first example, the ellipses hide part of the path. However, the first 6 lines do APPEAR to be the same. Looking in my database, this is what I see: 4175, http://kasdivi.com/images/Gallery/2009/august/general/cargill%20(1%20of%206).jpg, cargill%20(1%20of%206).jpg, 400, 300, , 25, 0 4174, htt...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

Sphider records images by name and URL. If the same image URL/name is referenced on multiple pages, it will be recorded as a duplicate. Thus, it doesn't matter what page the image appears on, but where it actually resides. Each page being indexed finds all images referenced by that page. For each im...

Re: search.php on line 446 generating not permitted warning

Using the index that I build for the site, and doing a search for all images (*), the first ten results show these files in sphider/tmp: -rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 60024 Jun 14 13:58 DSC_7048-2.jpg -rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 80744 Jun 14 13:58 IMG_0081.jpg -rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 5748...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

I am happy it is all working and glad I could be of some assistance. You did the hard work.
Persistence is what leads to success, and bitching is part of the process. (I know from experience!)

And just think.... you'll get to do it all over again when you upgrade to PHP 8... :o
