Re: Updating Error

Be sure to give the database a new name for the fresh install. If that goes well, let me know and I may be able to work out a way to port the data from the old database to the new to save having to re-index all your sites.

1.3.5 is pretty old and PHP 5.6 isn't gonna be around forever!

Re: Updating Error

OMG! You found a typo in the newest 'install.php'!! :oops:

Okay. Edit 'install.php'.
See where it says:
error_reporting(E_ALL0../settings";
Replace that with:
$settings_dir = "../settings";
I'll have to update the zip file so that doesn't happen again to someone else.

Re: Updating Error

When you say your "old install", do you mean the 1.3.5 version? I'd be surprised it would work with the new database! Can you post a snapshot of the settings tab? Do you have 1.3.5 and 2.2.0 BOTH installed in separate directories but pointing to the SAME database? (That actually would work as long a...

Re: Updating Error

Don't blame you! I just have to know where we are first, then we can most likely resolve the problem with a few sql scripts. I just need to know where you have ended up at (hence the short script I provided). Once we have the database where we want it for the Sphider code to work, we can go about re...

Re: Updating Error

Use the below code to create a new php file. Name it something like 'diagdb.php' and put in in the admin directory. Then run it from a browser. This should tell us how far the updating got before it puked. <?php $settings_dir = "../settings"; require "$settings_dir/database.php"; $result = $db->quer...

Re: Updating Error

Be happy to help you. Couple of questions first... What version of Sphider were you running? The original 1.3.6?? Which version did you download? The error indicates a duplicate key entry, which is probably a data error. Once I know what we are going from and what we are going to, I may have some id...

Indexing MP3 files

Sphider does not have the ability to index mp3 (or wav or ogg) files. At one time, way back, there was a mod for the original Sphider to index mp3's. Whatever happened to that mod is anyone's guess. Anyway, I started to play around with a test script, based on Sphider's image indexing, to see if aud...

Sphider 2.2.0, Classic and PDO, are released

The 2.2.0 Classic and PDO vervsions of Sphider have been released. Some rewriting of the Search form and displayed results took place. The Sphider administrator can now use the control panel to toggle between just a basic search or a tabbed search for basic, RSS, and image searches. No more renaming...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Thanks. Yes, SphiderPlus is still a charge. And I have an archive of EVERY build I have done. I wish I had a CMS like back in my SYSTEM V days! Any changes I have made, like RWD, stay... unless I find a good reason to back them out. Early on, I made a security improvement at someone's suggestion tha...

Re: Template for mobile browsers

Making some progress... I think. First is the search page with tabbed search ON, advanced search ON, and categories ON. Screenshot_20181129-113107.png Then we disable tabbed search in the admin panel. Screenshot_20181129-113155.png The page with advanced search and categories also turn off. Screensh...
