Search Links Not Working

Hi,

I recently moved my JavaHelp to a server from a standalone version (which worked fine) and I've been having some difficulties. I've got most of them figured out but I have one that I'm completely stuck on.

When I perform a search, the search will return hits back. They seem to be OK. However, when I click a hit, it will not go to that page. Whatever page is currently in the viewer simply stays and the highlighting changes.

As a general example, say the current page I have displayed is Holidays - Labor Day. I perform a search for Holidays and it returns all the various Holiday pages. I click on Holidays - Christmas and all that happens is some highlighting occurs on the Labor Day page with no apparent rhyme or reason to the highlighting. Clicking on other Holidays simply moves the highlighting around.

Does anybody have any advice as to what the problem is and how to fix it?

Just guessing but from reading the description it sounds like a the
files aren't setup correctly with indirect referencing in your search
database. I'm trying to remember and I'm sure it's in the archives but
use jhsearch against your search database. It's a command line tool.
Enter in a search command and look at the file names of the file
returned. You should be able to construct a URL using that file name
appended to the file name of the help set (with the help set file name
removed).
