CFINDEX: diff between PATH and FILE type?
Posted on 2004-04-05
I'm building a site search using CFSEARCH on Verity collections. Nightly an automated process will run a page which uses CFINDEX to make sure the catalogs are current. Really, the search is handling three things:
1)A search of dynamic content kept in database tables -- this collection is created and indexed and works as expected.
2)A search of a catalog which contains Web site documents -- .cfm, .html, .asp, etc.
3)A search of a catalog which contains documents living on our Web server -- .doc, .ppt, .pdf, etc.
What TYPE should I make the CFINDEX for 2 & 3 -- should they be PATH or FILE? I can't quite identify what the difference is, despite looking in the CFMX docs and my CF WACK.
