Many problems trying to get this to work
« on: December 05, 2008, 12:17:25 PM »
HI I am running on a windows server and am having many problems.

I have got around permissions problems temporarily by allowing all read, write, execute, delete permissions to the generator directory and all files/sub directories.

but now when i run the generator from the crawl page it either does one of 2 things.

1. gets stuck like this
Already in progress. Current process state is displayed:
Links depth: 3
Current page: sitemaps/Allans Flat-VIC-3691-professional-wedding-portrait-commercial-photographers-directory.cfm
Pages added to sitemap: 195
Pages scanned: 200 (6,503.4 Kb)
Pages left: 15972 (+ 851 queued for the next depth level)
Time passed: 0:43
Time left: 58:31
Memory usage: 7,060.5 Kb


2. I get this error message

FastCGI Error
The FastCGI Handler was unable to process the request.

Error Details:

    * The FastCGI process exceeded configured activity timeout
    * Error Number: 258 (0x80070102).
    * Error Description: The wait operation timed out.

HTTP Error 500 - Server Error.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

I have emailed my host about this and there reply was

you should increase the max script running time in server configuration to allow it to complete crawling.
Also, if you can setup a scheduled task in hosting control panel to run sitemap generator in command line, that could work too.
