Hello,
I'm ran into trouble when installing this. I downloaded and unzipped the files. I then uploaded them in ascii mode using FTP to a folder called sphider on my server. I created the corresponding database, user, and password and entered this ... [More] info, along with the server name into database.php and then reuploaded that. When I first ran the install script, I got an error. I then edited my database to give it full privileges, but I got the error below:

Sphider installation script.

Creating tables failed. Consult the above error messages.

While I understand design coding fairly well, I'm not versed in programming. I edit files in Notepad and upload them using an FTP program, though I can also edit them via a File Manager in the cPanel of my webhost. I used MySQL to create the database and my web host is using Version: 5.5.32.

Here is a link to the page with the error: http://www.altogetherchristmas.com/sphider/admin/install.php.

Here is the info from the database.php file, in case that helps:

$database="sphiderdb";
$mysql_user = "sphidersearch";
$mysql_password = "Sph1d3r!";
$mysql_host = "altogether.accountsupportmysql.com";
$mysql_table_prefix = "";
Any help in getting this correctly installed would be greatly appreciated. While I know how to create databases and set privileges, that's about the extent of my experience with them, so please give explicit instructions if I need to edit things using something like PHP MyAdmin.
Thank you in advance,

Hello,

Is there a way for sphider to only index the titles of pages, and for it to only show the titles in search results?
I was looking for such a setting in the configuration, but i couldn't find one.

Best Regards,

Hello,

I'm trying to prevent Sphider from indexing part of my content. I followed the instructions and put around that content on my page, but they both turn into blank lines in the source code and the content still gets indexed. ... [More]

Am I missing something really simple here? I notice on other people's websites, it shows up just fine in the source code. [Less]

I have created the database and installed Sphider in the subdirectory where one of my many websites is hosted in my hosting service.
It is located here: http://leofenton.com/sphider/search.php

The simple search page I made ... [More] is:
http://leofenton.com/search.html

The Site URL to be searched (using Admin.php) is: http://leofenton.com/_writings

In this directory of the website (leofenton.com) and its subdirectories, there are about 700 html files, but a search brings up zero - absolutely nothing. I get this message regardless of the word or phrase I search for:

Table 'evmgosearch.query_log' doesn't exist

What am doing wrong? [Less]

I have installed the Sphider files into a directory of my hosting called "sphider" (www.dm-webcreation/sphider)
I have created a database with MySQL called "evmsearch"

I edited the database.php and uploaded it to the server (sphider ... [More] directory | settings)
$database="evmsearch";
$mysql_user = "evmsearch";
$mysql_password = "Tica8422#8";
$mysql_host = "localhost";
$mysql_table_prefix = "";

I then attempted to load the install.php into my browser by typing the following into the browser:
http://dm-webcreation.com/sphider/admin/install.php

And I received this error message:
Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home/content/d/m/w/dmwebcreation/html/sphider/settings/database.php on line 10
Cannot connect to database, check if username, password and host are correct.

Please help me understand what am doing wrong?

Also... I host several websites in this hosting service. Do I only need to install Sphider into the root directory? Or do I need a separate installation for each website?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi there,

I installed Sphider yesterday on my localhost, only problem I have with the result page is that at the 'description' section in the results it only shows the text 'TO FOLLOW' on every result. Anyone having a guess what the issue might be?

Hi all,

need to index files from a ftp server.
I created a directory listing with links with PHP and added this PHP page to the Sphider sites.
But it seems that Sphider does not follow this links. (I switched on the option "Spider ... [More] can leave domain")

Does anyone have an idea or an alternative solution?

Bye,
