I solved the problem with a hack. No matter what I tried for the idxname
in /srv/www/htdocs/ffarchive/index.html, the index files (NMZ*) were not
found. I tried every name and path in "idxname= ..." that seemed
reasonable with the identical result:
The response always is:
References: [ (can't open the index) ]
Reading the documentation for the Nth time, I noticed this line:
"If you omit index, namazu will assume /usr/local/var/namazu/index as target."
I thought, "OK, if I can't insert the path namazi.cgi needs to find the
index files, I can remove the idxname setting from index.html and copy the
index files to the default location." I did that and it works.
Since I was unable to make namazu.cgi find the index files no matter
what I set idxname= to, there may be a bug in namazu.cgi. If the web
search works in version 2.0.17 for anyone with the index files NOT in
the default location (/usr/local/var/namazu/index/) then there isn't a
bug. If it DOES work for someone, please post the relevant section of
your index.html file. Mine (which does not work) is:
<title>Freeflight List Archives</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/archive/html/stylesheet_00.css">
<form method="get" action="/cgi-bin/namazu.cgi">
<input type="text" name="query" size="40">
<input type="submit" name="submit" value="Search!">
<input type="hidden" name="idxname" value="ffarchive">
<a href="namazu.cgi?idxname=ffarchive">[How to search]</a><br>
After removing the last two lines above and inserting:
<a href="namazu.cgi?">[How to search]</a><br>
searches work (the NMZ.* files that previously were in
/srv/www/htdocs/ffarchive are now in
I hope this helps someone...
