How to make an offline search engine for CD-ROM/DVD?


There are three steps to make an offline search engine for CD-ROM/DVD.

First Step: Index from the local computer.

  1. In the "Index" window, check the "Offline mode" option.
  2. Select the root folder where your Web pages are located.
  3. Set the "Corresponding base URL" address

For offline/local/CD/DVD distribution, this URL should be the relative path from where the search script will be stored.

By default, if the search engine files will be placed in the root folder (which you have selected in this window), use "./" (which refers to the current directory) as your base URL.

Make search engine for CD

If all your documents are to be copied to a subfolder named "data" on the CD, and the search engine files are to be copied in the root folder of the CD, then you should use "./data/" as the base URL. The "./" refers to the current directory, and "./data/" means that the search engine will need to find documents in the subfolder "data" of the current directory.

If all your documents are to be copied to a subfolder named "data" on the CD, and the search engine files will be copied to a subfolder named "search", you should use "../data/" as the base URL. The "../" refers to the parent directory, and "../data/" means that the search engine will find documents in the subfolder "data" of its parent directory.
