Yes, no luck.  This is a summary of what I have discovered so far:

I can open/download the file in the browser, so file/path/permissions 
I index via CGI search works (but because of https, indexes nothing)
I index via filesystem search fails (but index all files)
I had perlfect search work, then it stopped
The techos upgraded a few machines (but not the web server)
I moved my site from .shtm to php pages (doubt related, but including 

Based on this, I suspect it is a problem with the sturucture of the 
index file, which might be being caused by different versions of 
DB_File installed.   The configuration here is that I cannot directly 
log onto the web server, only have access to an shared area on the 
server.   So I think when I index via the file system, the local 
version of DB_File is different to the version of DB_File on the web 

This fits with machines on our network being upgraded.  I have asked 
the techos for more detailed information (version of DB_FILE on server 
etc), and will let you know of my progress.

Thought I would keep you informed of my progress.
