Setting the Temporary Spider Path
1. Navigate to c:/program files/passageways/services/dtsearch/ and open PortalDocumentIndexer.exe.config
2. The item with this key in the “appSettings” section of the PortalDocumentIndexer.exe.config specifies the location where the indexer will create its temporary files during the indexing process
3. An entry looks like this:
<add key=”TempSpiderPath” value=”C:\dtSearch\uniquename\” />
key – This is not a user configurable key. The indexer application requires this to be “TempSpiderPath” in order for it to work
value – The file path to the location where temporary files will be manipulated during the indexing process
4. Manually run the dtSearch Indexer to recreate the document index immediately, or wait for the scheduled task to run for you.
