Can I use the same indexed binary data files for UNIX and WINDOWS?
Because of newly imposed CPU/memory restrictions from my hosting provider,
I'm no longer able to run the indexer on a Unix server.
So, I created a mirror of my site, on my WIN 2000 laptop, and ran
indexer.pl, locally. After indexing, I tested it on Win 2000 and it worked
like a charm.
However, when I uploaded all the indexed binary files (content, desc,
inv_index, titles, etc.) to the Unix server, it didn't work correctly.
The results were absolutely inaccurate. Sometimes 95% of the results would
just point to my site's main URL.
I tried uploading the files as binary, as well as ASCII. No success.
Obviously, using an OS like Linux would solve the problem. I made my laptop
system, triple-boot with Redhat 7.2, Win 2000, and Win 98.
But, I'm completely new to Linux/Unix; I haven't even been able to properly
configure my mouse, let alone learn enough to install Apache, Tomcat, Perl,
