Normally gift only analyses files with extensions known to be images. All extensions are mentioned in the gift-add-collection perl script. Make sure that the extensions are all lower case and not upper case as they might not be recognized. You can also add an extension to the script if you have extensions not mentioned there.

Hi there,

Thanks for this hint. I have already indexd a small collection and its
working. I simply indexed 10 images and everything went fine. The xml2fts
file is created, the InvertedFile.db is ok. I even connected successfully
from my flash client and php to the gift server. What can be wrong with my
big collection of about 13000 images I would like to index? Is it a problem
if .txt files or others are somewhere in there in a subdir e.g.? Or do I
have to give more memory to my computer? I have about 9900 .gif files and
3100 .jpg files in my big collection... maybe there are some additional
files like txt or png - could this be a problem?

Regards and thanks for your help and time!

could you index a small collection with gift-add-collection and send the output to this list.

With --help you can get a list of the options and it might be good to manually select a directory for the cofiguration file that you have access to.

There are many possibilities for empty files, for example that there are no files with known image extensions in the directory that you indexed.

Hi there,

I installed the gift by using apt-get on my ubuntu 8 system. As far as I can see the indexing process went fine. But when the indexing wanted to write the file gift-config.mrml, there was an error because no such file exists. Now one big problem:

I cannot locate a file with the name url2fts.xml on my system. This probably means that it wasn’t generated…

Any ideas or hints to solve this problem???

Best Regards / Beste Grüße,
