Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I configured GlimpseHTTP correctly just like it was described in the manual. When I run search using Glimpse by hand, it returns search results OK. But when I use the search form (script) of GlimpseHTTP, it gives no matches. What's wrong ?
A: There may be several reasons:
  1. There is a following line in /cgi-bin/aglimpse:
    next unless $file =~ s|^$indexdir||o;
    It filters out all lines that don't belong to a given hierarchy, and is given for security reasons. However, it may cause some problems.
