I read the forum and I have a variety of problems.
Before I upgraded to V5, the crawling ceased to work. I could start it but it never finished or showed progress. It was working fine and then it stopped showing progress.
I upgraded, and it still was not showing progress. I checked permission, and changed generator folder to 777. Now, when I try the generator url, it redirects to my homepage.
I saw that you recommended added a .htacess to the generator folder with RewriteEngine off. I did that, but it still redirects.
Can you help me troubleshoot?
