Description Brent Bourgoine 2003-07-22 14:15:19 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030530 Galeon/1.3.5

Description of problem:
Command-line htsearch appears to work fine, and returns the expected html output.

Searching via the same htsearch binary from the browser causes 2 things to happen:

1 - Any search that returns no results returns an HTTP 500 error, rather than
the expected "No results found" page.  Apache's error log shows only a
"Premature end of script headers" error, with no preceding information regarding
the exact cause.

2 - Any search that *does* return results seems to be truncated (I believe this
part to be the same issue as bug 81044)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. 'rundig' on the site in question to generate htdig's database.
2. Access the search page from a web browser.
3. Search for a string that returns no results.

Actual Results:  HTTP 500 Error to the browser.

Apache error log shows:
[Tue Jul 22 13:26:31 2003] [error] [client] Premature end of script
headers: /web/kavi/dotorg/sites/list-server/htdocs/htdig/bin/htsearch

Expected Results:  "No Results Found" page from htdig

As I said above, this may be related to bug 81044 as well.

It is. And see my comments for that bug, too. Next enterprise version will
contain an older version of htdig again which works fine.

Also planing on doing an errata for AS2.1

Read ya, Phil
