cannot install/run
« on: February 08, 2006, 01:08:08 AM »
1. your documentation lacks specificdewscriptions of how the product is actually executed.

2. index.php contains a copyright disclaimer and what appears to be encrypted data. opening this file via i.e. either on windows, or from linux, nothing executes. i know for a fact that a valid html/php file should function, because i can see license.html and documentation.html normally. did you provide a junk file in my download? is there an license activation step not mentioned?

3.

"4. Usage
The first step is the script "Configuration". The script will show you the alert messages if the problem is found (e.g., config file is not writable).
Do not forget to save the settings for your website after making the changes.
Try to crawl your site using "Crawling" page. Just press "Run" button and you will see the generation progress information, including: "

there is no file in your distributiion named simply Configuration . if you are in fact referring to

config.inc.php

then nothing less than that name is adequate  as a reference.
the first step is  TO DO WHAT TO/WITH  whatever file is meant by "Configuration"?
is config.inc.php to be edited manually?

the documentation module does display the almost useful info above but selecting any of the functions on the top bar ... a) produces blank pgs on linux  b) displays on windows:

...

all files in  $DOCUMENT_ROOT/xml-sitemap/ are  -rwxr-xr-x and owned by root.

Hello,

welcome to the forums!

The script is written in PHP language and it should be executed on the server.
As specified in the documentation, you should upload the files to your server:
Quote
2. Installation

   1. Unpack the contents of distribution archive to the target folder on your server.
...

Then you will open this URL in your browser to configure/execute the script. (The script works from your browser.)

Quote
there is no file in your distributiion named simply Configuration . if you are in fact referring to
You will see a link called "Configuration" when you will open the script URL in browser.


The script is fully functional and doesn't require any additional steps related to licensing.

There are topics on this forum that describe the whole process:
Installation in easier words
Configuring in easier words

if you read my problem statement you will note that:

"the documentation module does display the almost useful info above but selecting any of the functions on the top bar ... a) produces blank pgs on linux  b) displays on windows:

"

states that precisely what you prescribe as the solution:

"Then you will open this URL in your browser to configure/execute the script. (The script works from your browser.)"

DOES NOT WORK.

actual output from my system:

$ pwd
/data/web/production
drwxr-xr-x   4 root  root   4096 Feb  7 16:35 xml-sitemap

$ cd xml-sitemap

$ dir
total 92
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  3450 Feb  7 14:55 changelog.txt
-rwxrwxrwx  1 root root   879 Feb  7 14:55 config.inc.php
drwxrwxrwx  2 root root  4096 Feb  7 15:07 data
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 12689 Feb  7 14:55 documentation.html
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root   104 Feb  7 14:56 index.html
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  3178 Feb  7 14:56 index.php
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  3037 Feb  7 14:56 license.html
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  3037 Feb  7 16:35 license.txt
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root  4096 Feb  7 15:03 pages
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root  1173 Feb  7 14:56 runcrawl.php

# /data/web/production  is our $DOCUMENT_ROOT

browser set to:

 http://<ourDomain>/xml-sitemap/documentation.html

OPENS documentation.html but the links to

# Configuration# Crawling# View Sitemap# Analyze# ChangeLog# Broken Links# Documentatio

all yield BLANK pages.

http://<ourDomain>/xml-sitemap/index.html

yields a blank page with no messages or feedback of any kind.

i repeat: the above text  "<?php // This file is protected by copyright law..."

is the actual contents of index.php .

i guessed that opening documentation.html from the web host SHOULD allow me to follow the obvious links to perform config tasks and run the app; as you see i have done what the documentation specifies.

it doesn't work.

why?
