After a pretty long period of 'getting started' I was playing with the software a bit, took a look on the DB  and please have a few more questions:

1.       I saw that in the session table – a single session was calculated until I was closing the browser, so I went to the config.ini saw it under the 'session' section and changed it to be '60' just to see what will happen.


Then – I indeed see that running a new search query after each 60 seconds causes the ID of this session to be promoted but it's still all under the same session which is actually the same behavior as before except for the ID that is being changed.

(The new ID overrides the old one and the old ID cannot be found), so:


a.       Is that the expected behavior?

b.      Is there a way to define that after period of 'x' seconds – create a new entry in the 'sessions' table?

c.       I also noticed that each search ('lookfor') overrides the previous, meaning – there is no way to see ALL values that were searched during this session.

Is there a configuration parameter/workaround for allowing it?


2.       I added a user entry to the user table but still cannot 'login' - is it something with the authentication method in the config.ini? (Currently set to LDAP).

Which log tracks the authentication attempts?


3.       I need some directing in the code, I am please looking for the code sections that handle:

a.       Writing down to the DB.

b.      GUI of main vufind homepage.


Thanks a lot in advance.
