View Full Version : Too many results per site spidered and redirections

01-24-2004, 12:05 PM

Sometimes I spider a site that doesn't exist anymore but it gets forwarded to a default directory with an enormous number of links on them and begins spidering that page.

Here's an example page I enter to spider:

I am using windows2000 server and entering this page in a bat file like this:
php.exe -f "C:\InetPub\wwwroot\phpdig\admin\spider.php" http://www.jacksondiamondkats.com

I have 3 questions after dealing with this site:

1] Can I prevent my spider from being redirected?
PHPDIG_IN_DOMAIN set to false already

2] Can I limit the number of sites spidered in case there are too many links on a page?
- there is a variable in config.php, called NUMBER_OF_RESULTS_PER_SITE, which I set to 10 for example, but it still tries to spider however many links are on the page above ie >70.

Any recomondations on how to deal with a site like:

3] I just want to spider a main/homepage for a site and the links from this page only, are these variables set corrrectly?

Any assistance would be appreciated,

Hi. For one, perhaps try modifying some code in the phpdigTestUrl function. For two, NUMBER_OF_RESULTS_PER_SITE is for the max number of results to display per site from a search, but perhaps this (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?threadid=300) thread might help. For three, yes a limit of one indexes a given page and links from that page.
