Spidering vBulletin web sites?

Has anyone spidered a vBulletin site? It seems like the same pages are getting reindexed with different session variables. I am using PHPdig 1.8

Hi. If not already done, use this file and set the following in the config file to match the session variable name:
PHP Code:
define('PHPDIG_SESSID_REMOVE',true);     // remove SIDS from indexed URLS
define('PHPDIG_SESSID_VAR','PHPSESSID'); // name of the SID variable

Hi. The session variable name can sometimes be seen in the address bar of a web browser or in the HTML source of a page.

Hi. I haven't experienced that issue on PhpDig.net. What are you using for a session variable name?

Question Hi, I must be stupid... please help.

Hi Charter,

Thanks for all the great advice you give on this site. I'm reading your info and I'm still a bit confused (sorry, I'm still learning php and xml). The part of the config file you listed was:

Quote:
define('PHPDIG_SESSID_REMOVE',true); // remove SIDS from indexed URLS
Now, isn't that how it's already written in the config file? (I downloaded phpdig last week so it seems to be the most current version at the time of this writing) And if the answer is yes, then what exactly am I supposed to do with the info to remove sessions from my spidering?

Sorry, I guess I need to read up a bit more about linux, php, and xml and... and.. yep. I'm a newbie.

Thanks in advance, Charter.

Hi. You'd need to provide the name of the SID variable in the config file:
PHP Code:
define('PHPDIG_SESSID_REMOVE',true);     // remove SIDS from indexed URLS
define('PHPDIG_SESSID_VAR','PHPSESSID'); // name of the SID variable 
Not all SID variables are named PHPSESSID so if you already indexed, then you might want to reindex once the SID name is set.

Oh okay. I think I understand. So if they are using "sid" as their session id then I guess I should go into the config file, set the PHPDIG_SESSID_VAR to 'sid' and then reindex my database? If so, cool. I'll try it out. Thanks a bunch!

Hi. Yep, that's it. You might have to delete the site, clean the dictionary, and then index anew so PhpDig doesn't continue to store old session info in the tables.

Yeah that would be great - dynamic SID variables that change depending on the one at the site (maybe Dig could check an array for a list of known SID types when it hits a certain URL?)

Is there a way to set more than one "PHPSESSID" string? I index many different "related" sites but some use "SID" some "SESS" some "SESSID" some "PHPID" etc.,
