I've got a bit of a problem. Here's the scenario.
I'm using an Earthlink hosting account which provides htdig
3.1.5 functionality. I only have FTP access, so I cannot run htdig,
htmerge, etc. and create the db files on the server itself. I was able
to install htdig 3.1.5 once before and get perfect functionality for the
website I needed searched. And then that oh-so-painful process occurred
- there was an update of gigantic size to the website, and the db files
had to be updated. So, for reasons that I'm not entirely clear on (I
think it was a system rebuild, my memory's not all that it once was) I
had lost htdig 3.1.5. I was able to install htdig 3.1.6, create new db
files and they worked fine.mostly. They searched on words (specifically
words from titles of books) and returned the proper results. However,
when searching on just numbers (specifically ISBN's for said books) the
results did not come up.
So essentially the current db files aren't working properly.
I'm worried that a 3.1.6 db file isn't going to be compatible with a
3.1.5 htsearch program. Any thoughts?
I've tried recompiling htdig 3.1.5 and 3.1.6 on a completely
separate RedHat 8.0 machine. I am constantly getting "checking for
fstream.h. no" errors that tell me that I need to install a standard C++
library, which I've done. I'm trying to work on this - reviewing
mailing list archives. I may ask questions about this (fstream.h) in
the future as well, but for now I'm just trying to get the above problem
solved. If there's something that I need to tweak (is there a limit of
some sort somewhere on the number of terms in a db file?) to fix this,
I'm only too happy to do it and beyond appreciative of any help

Did you enable indexing of numbers before building the new database? By=20=
default numbers are not indexed. See=20
