View Full Version : locked site and commandlineinterface

i'm wondering

is it true that the working directory must be the phpdig when spidering via cgi?

cd path_to_phpdig/
/usr/local/php/bin/php -f admin/spider.php http://***.***.nl >> spider_log.txt

on OS X the $_SERVER[{'REQUEST_URI'] isn't present when working from the cli, thought uyou should know.

a locked site doesn't give any feedback while updeting with the cli? correct? it just hangs, indefinitely
a die( with some message ) would be nice?

if my search page is here: /search.php
is it true that phpdig MUST be installed at / ?

How would I include phpDig into my own (search) page (form) and a result page.
The '$relative_script_path' seems to suggest I can only include the includes/config.php when it is next to my own search/result pages? is this assumption correct, and wouldn't it be more logical to have the choice of installation path to be anywere I like?

these are my first steps into this phpDig thing, nice product!

Hi. For one, try using the full path to spider.php in the command line from outside the PhpDig directory, editing the config.php file if needed. For two, thanks. For three, add a space and ampersand to the end of the command to run the process in the background (the output is in the spider_log.txt file). For four and the rest, you can modify the $relative_script_path variable to install elsewhere if desired.
