I got it working!

I found that Microsoft FrontPage and PhpDig don't play well together!

Here is what I did:

1. Removed the web from the server (I did not remove the files, I deleted the entire web).
2. I recreated the web without Microsoft FrontPage extensions.
3. Installed PhpDig, and it worked.

Other notes:

1, At first I would unzip PhpDig on my PC then upload the files to the web site. This did not work (PhpDig could not connect to the database). When I uploaded the .zip file then unzipped it on the site (using a Shell account) it worked.
2, After getting PhpDig working and spidering several sites, I installed the Microsoft FrontPage extensions. PhpDig stopped working. It could not connect to the database.

I don't know much about Linux file permissions. I would appreciate any insight into how to get Microsoft FrontPage and PhpDig working on the same sight.

My environment:
Cobalt RAQ4 server,
Linux 2.2,
PHP 4.1.2-3,
MySQL 3.23.54-1,
phpMyAdmin 2.2.6.

Many have trouble getting PHP and FP to work together. It's because FP manipulates your PHP scripts by converting certain characters into invalid ones. You may want to look into SSI or just shun FP altogether.
