Syntax: one or more URLs, one per line
This is the address where the web walker will start walking your site.
If the whole site is to be searched, simply enter your web address, for example
http://www.example.com". If the search is to be limited, specify the
address to start the search or create a page listing the URLs to
search. The search will only return information from your web site - no
off-site searching will be done. Directory URLs should include a final
forward slash "
/". Example - "
http://www.example.com/mysite/". If you
have a virtual domain that just redirects to another URL, enter the
destination URL as your Base URL instead of your virtual domain name.
You may specify multiple base URLs to index multiple sites;
the Search Appliance's idea of a "site" is a single host as identified by
the hostname portion of a URL. Therefore
http://example.com would all
be considered different sites.
In version 4.02.1046373961 Feb 27 2003 and later, the special
https-post may be used for a
Base URL. This uses the POST method instead of the GET method to
fetch the URL, using the query string as POST data (it must be
URL-encoded). This can be used to start walking at a login page form
that requires POST instead of GET. Note that the URL stored in the
html table will have the
-post and query string removed
for security. During a
Refresh walk, when a URL is about to be
refreshed, the probable Base URL that led to it (i.e. the one with the
longest prefix) will also be fetched. This helps ensure that login
cookies are properly restored to allow the Search Appliance access during the
In version 5, a username and password may be given in the Base URL.
Normally, if only one login is required to access the site to be walked,
the username and password should be given in the Login Info walk setting.
However, if several different logins are required, the additional logins
can be specified as
user:password@ prefixed to the hostname in
the Base URL. Note that the user/pass is for WWW Basic Authentication.
If your site uses a custom or form-based login, use
