Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

If you can find a Free BSD forum, that may be of some help from others experienced in the operating system.

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

Whichever version works as the correct PHP module for you version of PHP. My experience says the modules change for each major PHP version and tend to be immune to minor changes. So, for your case, PHP 7.4 matters, but the ".20" minor version does not. Concentrate on the correct Imagick fo...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

I know Imagick can be a pain. My version of Linux is Ubuntu, which is Debian based. Ubuntu has vast repositories which really simplify life. Free BSD, on the other hand, is a real UNIX. My UNIX experience was on System V (AT&T) and that was several decades ago! There was a time I installed Imagi...

Good to hear you are indexing.

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

I performed a test index on the site; When I test, I tend to torture Sphider, so I am likely more aggressive than most users. I allowed image indexing as well, which added considerable to the workload; The index completed after a marathon session of about 7.5 hours. The site was larger than I had an...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

Doing a quick test of the site, indexing SHOULD proceed rather quickly. If you are having problems with sphider exiting prematurely (before completion) and get a lot of "Continuing suspended indexing.", we need to dig deeper. For starters, in admin/spider.php, lines 34 and 35 control error...

Re: how can i tell if indexing is working

This is UNIX/Linux. No news is good news! LOL! (For Sphider, it seems to think ALL operating systems are Linux! :D ) Actually, depending on the browser being used, you should notice the page is active. For example, with Firefox you will notice a spinning activity symbol on the tab. Chromium (and I p...

Re: Cant get to work

There are several directories within the admin directory. One of them is "log". These directories must be writable by the web server. In Linux using Apache, the owner must be changed to www-data. Also permissions should be set to 775. You are using BSD, but are also using Apache... I can't...

Re: Cant get to work

Forgive me for asking this question:
Do the logon user/password credentials match the "admin"/"admin_pw" defined in auth.php, lines 22 and 23?

If so, I have a couple more test echoes in mind...

Re: Cant get to work

Actually, it was ME who screwed up! The line SHOULD be:
echo "And here we sit";
My fat fingers ended the statement with a colon instead of a semi-colon. My apologies!
