Dear All,

does anyone know if the version of Perlfect Search which is installed on VDSs can index PDF/Word files?

Quoting from the Perlfect website:

Can index PDF files (requires pdftotext, which is part of xpdf) and MS-Word files (requires antiword).

The version of Perlfect Search that is installed on your VDS cannot index PDF/Word files. It is actually used to scan and index the web site itself. Take a look at http://manual.westhost.com/part7.html#sitesearch for more information on that. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.
