I was half way through writing another email to explain where I was at.
You nailed the situation down with this one. I had missed the ****in
obvious and replaced LINK with DIR - must have stopped thinking for a
little. Since then, I had blow it away, and correctly configured it.
Now, nightly_htdig from the command line does bitch the first time I
run it, but no output the second time. Regardless how many times I run
it, I get all files except the db.words.db in the appropriate directory,
and the web error descrbed below follows.
