View Full Version : Automatic reIndexing - How to set up

06-16-2004, 10:36 AM
I'm just a newbie and I have my first question...

I just browsed through the source code and I saw that phpdig parses the "revisit-after" Meta tag. From what I saw here in the forums, this is used to reindex the page automatically. I was wondering if someone could give me more details about how this works. How does phpdig automatically reindex a site without a user telling it to (i.e. opening a page or clicking a button)?

Welcome to the forum, 2440media. :D

Revisit-after just tells phpdig when it can re-spider. It doesn't have anything to do with spidering automatically.

What you want to do is setup a cron job. Here (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=323&highlight=cron+tutorial) is a thread that tells you how to do that.

Hope this helps. :)

Thanks for your help....I'll give that cron job a try.
