Help with "Crawing" tab...
« on: February 22, 2007, 02:14:06 PM »
OK, I have a very large site, over 200,000 pages.

I started the Crawl about a week ago, and for the first few days, when I went to the"Crawl" tab, it showed me the progress (How many pages were crawled, how many scheculed for next level, etc".

But not, when I click on the Crawling Tab, it takes about a minute and just somes back saying:


Run In Background
O  Do not interrupt the script even after closing the browser window until the crawling is complete

It no longer shows me any stats on it's progress.  Is this normal?

Thank you.

perhaps the script times out when reading the progress from the current dump file (which may be the case when dump is huge). I suggest you to execute sitemap generator from command line via ssh for better performance.

OK, I do have access to the server root, but am not proficient in ssh.   I do have Putty.

Can you please tell me exactly how to run the script in SSH to do this?   Please be specific as I do not know ssh well at all.
