There is a lot of information at http://www.htdig.org
<http://www.htdig.org/> which will answer most of your questions.
1. No, just change it, the databases will almost certainly be purged
when you next run htdig.
2. Yes, pretty much exactly how you suggest.
3. Don't understand your question - are you referring to htsearch or

Subject: [htdig] a few more questions ?
i have some more questions to ask :
the default start url is this : > start_url:
my questions :
1. if i want to change this start url, do i have to purge the
database first ? if yes, how can i purge the existing database ? [with a
command or something else ?]=20
2. am i able to index more than one url ? i mean i want to
create search index for xxx.com, yyy.com, zzz.com.
if its possible then how i can insert the new urls in htdig.conf
should i add at the end of default site and separate them with
commas : start_url xxx.com, yyy.com, zzz.com
or should i add like this :=20
start_url zzz.com ?
3. what exactly does htdig search ? what is the main criteria ?
it just returns the LINKS that contains the word i look for ?=20
many thanks in advance.
htsearch can be configured to either show you just the links, or the
links plus a short excerpt of the original document.
htdig makes its decisions based on a lot of factors, which can be given
variable weighting, such as the text of the link to that page, the data
in the <head> section, as well as the text on the page itself.
Similarly, it is able to match on different word forms, ie plurals, past
tense, etc. Therefore, the exact search string may not appear in the
search results, particularly for lower-rated matches.
