problems making phpdig able to search pdf files
hello everybody!

I've installed phpdig on my server and am now trying to make it able to search through pdf files.

I checked this article:

but I have some problems now and I hope you can help me out:

first, their mirror couldn't find the file so I went to the footlab site and downloaded the newest file:


when I unzip it, I can't find

"only the pdftotext file (it has already been compiled and is a binary file)"
is it

then I upload this file in to my cgi-bin folder

in the config.php file I have to put the following:


define('PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF','/full/path/to/cgi-bin/pdftotext'); // assuming linux
shall I put there or why didn't they put an extension?

Thanks for your help

I have now found the file and changed my config file.

The spider starts searching but then stops (at least I guess so) and the page is finished loading although it says on top: "spider is searching..."
