  • deleting zdat files

    it uploads everything to my webhost

    and then i goto the search.php page and it gives me this
    Zoom files missing error: Zoom is missing one or more of the required index data files.
    Please make sure the generated index files are uploaded to the same path as this search script.
    i know my host enables php because i use php for most of my site. and when i uploaded the zdat files they just vanish on my ftp clients screen. and in the console well i jsut give ut he log:

    This message is generated by the running PHP script. So clearly PHP is installed.

    The message only appears when one or more of the xxxx.zdat files or the settings.php is missing on the server.

    So I think you should check to see if these files are on your server and in the same directory as the search.php file. Files just don't vanish. They have either been deleted or they were never in the folder you thought they were in.

    There might also be an 2nd issue as well. From the log you provided it seems that some of the files are very small. Like 75 bytes,
    STOR zoom_pages.zdat
    75 bytes sent successfully.

    So you might have also had a problem during the indexing and maybe you only indexed a single page??

    Note that in V4 of Zoom you don't need to use an external FTP program to upload files. FTP is built into Zoom.

      i upload them and then they just go away. maybe they're too small and i think its only indexing one page.

      i have a directory of all my articles called /archives i want it to just index that dir.


      idk ill try it again.

        ahh yes. i figured it out. the .zdat extension is invalid and i think my host doesnt except them. i tried using the online uploader instead of ftp and it said "invalid extension -not uploaded"

        damn is there anyway to counter this?

          We have never heard of this before. You must have a very very restrictive host. To block a file from being placed on the web site just becuase they don't like the name of the file it just silly.

          I would change hosting companies becuase this will surely cause you problems in the future as well.

          I would also check if they allow you to run a PHP or ASP script. If they are blobking you from uploading files. They might also not allow scripting.

          If you can't change companies, I would,

          1. Write them a nice letter asking permission to load your files on to your server. (and check if they support PHP or ASP)

          2. Change all the file names to another extension. e.g. rename xxxx.zdat to xxxx.zip or some other extenstion that was acceptable. Then you would also need to edit the script so that it used the same file names. It would be a big hassle. I would change to a more reasonable host.
