Adobe Forums: Verity Spider - Bad Keys

Adobe Forums: Verity Spider - Bad Keys

It was a painful experience to make the vspider work on the win 2008 r2 for new install of coldfusion 9.

I had to move our client application from ColdFusion MX 6.1 to ColdFusion 9 server and the verity eat up lot of time than I was anticipating, the solution was right in-front of me on this top link forum post but I couldn't understand what was needed.

Finally downloading the ColdFusion 9 Documentation and using the mkvdk command line as documented solved the issue. In ColdFusion 6.1 things were different and the automated script that I wrote 5 years ago has worked like a charm so far but now that I was upgrading the client application, things didn't worked out as expected.

If any one has to end up supporting and migrating a ColdFusion 6 automated search index to ColdFusion 9 than here is the solution for you:

1. Log In to Administrator site
2. Delete the migration indexes that are not working in the ColdFusion Collections
3. Delete the folder's of the indexes on physical drive
4. Restart ColdFusion Search Services
5. Modify and Run the below command for your migration indexes.

mkvdk -create -collection C:\ColdFusion9\verity\collections\YourSiteIndex -style C:\ColdFusion9\verity\Data\stylesets\ColdFusionVspider

The above mkvdk is one line .bat file for me.

6. Run your search index call, I use the command line utility

C:\ColdFusion9\verity\k2\_nti40\bin\vspider -cmdfile C:\Inetpub\YourWebSite\search_index.txt > C:\Inetpub\YourWebSite\search_index.log

and the search_index.txt has the following text

-common C:\ColdFusion9\verity\k2\common
-collection C:\ColdFusion9\verity\collections\YourSearchIndex
-host localhost
-loglevel verbose
-locale englishx
-indinclude "*/resources/news.cfm*" "*/resources/news_list.cfm"
-include "*/resources/news.cfm*" "*/resources/news_list.cfm"
-indskip a "*to parent directory*"
-nofollow "*parent directory*"
-delay 100
-connections 2
-indexers 1
-retry 2

Hope anyone who needs some minor help with migrating the ColdFusion 6.1 automated batch script of the search index will find this post to be helpful.

Google Mail Hangout Message Upon Delete Action

Don't know if I get annoyed this much as the Google's Mail Hangout Message, when I select to delete number or messages. " Because some are part of a Hangout, they have been removed from your Mail mailbox, but will still show up in other Hangouts apps and chat windows. " The message takes over the entire tool bar, and does not allow me to repeat the actions, it does not goes away until way late and would have appreciated but not allowed is a option to close. If I want to delete more items on the same page than i have to refresh the window to repeat the task. Wish the future update can allow me to close this message.

Questions that needs answers in writing that I already know

How do you put your experience in word's?  I know the same answers to the questions, that have helped people turn content into great blogs and website, and hear I am always struggling. "Questions that needs answers in writing that I already know" I wish many times that this should be easy, but it's always a bit further from my reach. Words or sentences that allude me. I wish to start a content website that is both a guide/help, and a source of passive income for me. With all that is going on, it will be a safety cushion to have a passive income.
