04-01-2005, 05:05 AM
I'm frustrated...
Ok, I have pdftotext installed in /usr/local/sbin and it is executable 755
safe_mode is OFF etc.etc. everything as discribed in the checklist.
Is result test http an array: 1
What is result test http status: PDF

Is result test an array: 1
What is result test status: PDF
Use is executable is set to: 1
Index the pdf is set to: 1
Parse the pdf is set to: /usr/local/sbin/pdftotext
Does parse pdf exist:
Is parse pdf executable:
(Zeit : 00:00:05)
Kein Link in der temporäreren Tabelle

There are no 'special' characters in the path to pdftotext.

What's wrong here?

Please Help.

As "Does parse pdf exist" and "Is parse pdf executable" both return no value (meaning "no") it looks like "/usr/local/sbin/pdftotext" may be the wrong path.

Nop, the path is right.
I now found out, that if I run spider.php from the command line, it works. But not in the admin web interface.

Are all the directories up to and including the directory holding pdftotext set to 755 permissions?

All files in /usr/local/sbin belong to apache and are set to 755

As you can run pdftotext from shell, it seems like the "apache" group/owner does not allow for a www user, in this case PhpDig, to access the binary. Either set group/owner so that www can run /usr/local/sbin/pdftotext or move pdftotext to a web accessible location and then set PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF to the new full path.
