This is a place to store tips on using/configuring the namazu file system search engine (on Linux).
To get namazu to index hidden files:
1. Copy the sample config file somewhere.
2. Uncomment & change the line:
$DENY_FILE = “.*\\.(gif|png|jpg|jpeg)|.*\\.tar\\.gz|core|.*\\.bak|.*~|\\..*|\x23.*”;
$DENY_FILE = “.*\\.(gif|png|jpg|jpeg)|.*\\.tar\\.gz|core|.*\\.bak|.*~|\x23.*”;
… i.e., remove the
3. When you run mknmz, make sure to tell it to use your new config file. I.e.,
... -f /path/to/namazu.conf
remember to include that semicolon after your $DENY_FILE or $ALLOW_FILE pattern declarations. Without it, shit won’t work properly.
when programatically calling mknmz to create the index or namazu to perform a search, be sure to use /full/path/from/root as well as enclosing your query in “quotes”.
