Not indexing pdf files

I am using pdftotext to index my pdf files. It converts the pdf to a txt file. I can do this successfully from the command prompt. However, when I try to index my site with phpdig it does not index the txt file. I have the following set in my config.php file:

define('PHPDIG_PDF_EXTENSION','.txt');

define('PHPDIG_INDEX_PDF',true);
define('PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF','F:/internet/search/pdftotext/pdftotext');
define('PHPDIG_OPTION_PDF','');

Any suggesions?

hi jayhhawk,

define('PHPDIG_INDEX_PDF',true);
define('PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF','/path/to/your/pdftotext');
define('PHPDIG_OPTION_PDF','');

//---------EXTERNAL TOOLS EXTENSIONS
define('PHPDIG_PDF_EXTENSION','.txt');

this settings shold work - please make shure that here:
define('PHPDIG_OPTION_PDF','');
after the comma there are two single quotes!

hope this helps :-)

They are two single quotes. I have been trying to track down the problem. One thing to note is that when I index the site it lists the url for the pdf, but it does not have a green checkmark next to it. Does that provide any clues to the problem I am having?

Hi. Perhaps check that the permissions are 755 for the directories to pdftotext and also for the pdftotext file.

Permissions are full control (just to see if I can get it to work). Still no luck.

Hi. What version of PHP are you running? Perhaps you are experiencing the same problem as in this thread.

Hi. It looks like the following is not returning a value:
PHP Code:
echo "Does parse pdf exist: " file_exists(PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF) . "<br>"
Try setting different paths in the following code, run it from the browser, and then use the path that produces "Does parse pdf exist: 1" onscreen.
PHP Code:
<?php
$filename 
"F:\\\\dhi-internet\\\\search\\\\Ghostgum\\\\pstotxt\\\\pstotxt3";
echo 
"Does parse pdf exist: " file_exists($filename);
?>

Hi. Do you have the following in the config file?

define('PHPDIG_INDEX_PDF',true);
define('PHPDIG_PARSE_PDF','F:\\dhi-internet\\search\\pdftotext\\pdftotext');
define('PHPDIG_OPTION_PDF','');
define('PHPDIG_PDF_EXTENSION','.txt');
