custom depth of search per site in cgi (including urllist)


since I use phpdig to spider several sites I wanted it to be possible to give a custom search depth per site in a urllist when spidering with a cron job.

So I made a few modifications to spider.php and robot_functions.php.

Thought this might be usefull for some off you, so I like to share it with you

IMPORTANT: modifications are made for version 1.8.3!

You need to add an extra column (site_limit) is to the table sites in the phpdig database sites

ALTER TABLE PREFIXsites ADD site_limit SMALLINT( 6 ) ;

example of list.txt
not specifying the depth or setting the depth to 0 will cause the spider to use the default depth as set in config.php

shell command:

#php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php list.txt will be spidered with a depth of 2 and will use the default value as specified in the config.php file will be spidered with a depth of 2

It can also be used to spider a single site

shell command:
#php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php depth
#php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php 5
this will spider with a depth of 5
#php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php
#php -f [PHPDIG_DIR]/admin/spider.php 0
If not specified or 0, then the default depth will be used as set up in config.php
