Ok, not sure what files you have used, but give these a try:-

I cant access / download the files to check right now but suspect they will work.

It's been around 2 years since this was added in originally and my install has been heavily modified since then.

If you cant get it to work, I will create fresh install for testing then link the correct files once my workload allows but will aim for next week.

Hope you get it sorted.

Forget that, I'm looking at this now.

I'll upload files and full instructions shortly.

Ok so I have tested this and it still works fine..

Here are the steps I followed:-

1. Fully install latest version of OpenCATS
2. Unzip the attached file in root of installation.
3. We're searching the galaxy of indexed CV/resume documents. (see screenshot).

In an update to this PDF files were always a bit temperamental.

The document would be search indexed but you may notice there was some times an encoding issue.

To solve this, you can upload xpdf directly to serve your install without root access. I have attached the exact folder I have on my installation - it's an old version but works fine nonetheless.


1, Unzip the attached zip file in your root installation.
2, Ensure the pdftotext file is executable (file permissions 0744)
2, Modify your config file to reflect xpdf directory. Something like below:-

Code: Select all

/* XPDF / pdftotext settings. Remember to use double backslashes (\) to represent
 * one backslash (\).
define('PDFTOTEXT_PATH', "/home/yourwebsite/OpenCATS/.xpdf-3.02pl2-linux/pdftotext");
3, Try it out :)
