reindex specific PHP page on change?

Hello -

Great script!

Our site has some pages with articles that users can comment on. The comments are added to a text file and then included at the bottom of the page using a simple PHP include statement. phpDig is able to index these comments with no problem.

What I would ideally like to do is to add a line to my PHP comment script that would make phpDig reindex just that page after adding the new comment. I realize that I could call the spider script after adding the comment, but how can I specify the specific URL and keep phpDig from spidering all the other links? I want to keep my search index up-to-date, but I don't want to tax the server unnecessarily.

THANKS in advance for your response.

Hi. Maybe try something like the following:
PHP Code:
// edit to fit your OS and script
if ($_POST['is_new_comment'] == "yes it is") {
$comment_page "http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$comment_page escapeshellcmd($comment_page);
$the_command "php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php ".$comment_page;

/* set the following in config.php

RE: reindex specific PHP page on change?

Thanks! I'll give it a try in a day or so and let you know how it turned out. I think I'll probably add a flag to spider.php to make it only reindex that one page rather than setting it in the config file (since at other times I'll want it to spider).
