It appears that the search code is working correctly, but that nothing
is being found in the databases. Given that no errors are being
reported, I would guess that for some reason the databases were created
but ended up empty. What command(s) did you run to create the databases
(index the site)? If you are just running rundig, you might try adding
a -v or two to the command line in order to get a better idea of what
htdig is trying to index. You might also want to check your start_url
and limit_urls_to attributes in order to make sure you are starting in
the right place and not inadvertently blocking content that you wish to
One other thing that you should be aware of. It appears that you are
using version 3.1.5. This version has a known security issue. If at all
possible (and assuming you are not already using a patched version of
3.1.5), you should consider moving to 3.1.6. The newer version includes
the patch for the security issue as well as a number of other bug fixes.
