question about htdig search system

P: n/a
I'm looking for a free open source web site search engine. htdig looks like
a good one that's well supported and used in the community. I've read over
the feature list and documentation, but I'm confused by one thing. In
addition to static HTML documents and plain text files, does htdig also
index dynamic pages? I have a MySQL-based company directory that needs to be
included in the search results.

Any/all comments are appreciated.

Dynamic pages are HTML anyway, so of course htdig supports it.

If you are looking for a PHP solution to interface with HTDig, you may
want to look at this PHP class:

Manuel, thanks for your reply.

I got htdig successfully installed, configured and working--sort of. It
works just as advertised for static HTML pages, but search results fail to
include dynamic pages. I might be missing something, but how's it suppose to
index dynamic search result pages using data that lives in a series of MySQL
tables?

Any clarification you could provide is extremely appreciated.

Maybe you are configuring htdig to crawl only URLs ending in *.html or
maybe crawling static pages in the server disk.

You should configure htdig to crawl pages specififying your site URL.
