Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to ACS/PG+AOLserver3 and robot detection...

Posted by Stan Kaufman on
Any clue what the silly configuration problem was?

The robot updating mechanism is failing with OpenACS 3.2.5, and I don't see any bugs (open or closed) related to this problem. Used to work ok with 3.2.4.

The call to ns_geturl in ad_replicate_web_robots_db seems to fail; it returns 'file does not exist'.

I see that the url for the robot data has changed (now it's but the file format doesn't seem different, so I presume that ad_replicate_web_robots_db should parse the file correctly -- if it could get it. I've set this new url in the WebRobotsDB parameter in the my server config file.

Any clues about what is going on here? TIA!
