I added a comment form to the foot of this page. You can ask stuff there, leave comments, that kind of thing. I don't expect it to get too busy; corzoogle just works.
When I load corzoogle in my browser I get a 403 error. What's up?
Mac OSX user? It sounds like you unzipped corzoogle somewhere, perhaps on a network
volume, and then moved it into place on your local machine. Often, when moving files
across volumes like this, file permissions get altered, tightened. And the mac webserver is
pretty strict about file permissions; generally a good thing.
What to do is, open the file's "get info" (right click the file) in the Finder, and set permissions to read/write for all catagories ( owner / group / others (world) ), or do..
chmod 755 /path/to/corzoogle.php
..in a shell/terminal session (as root).
If you unzip corzoogle on the same volume (preferably right in the folder where it will live) there is much less chance of its file permissions being reset like this, they will remain at the factory (my iMac) default.
The above probably applies to any script you download and install from corz.org
Is my Language supported?
aka. "Can I use such-and-such a character?"
A recent email response sums up the whole matter..

There is a way, but currently it's not pretty. I've had similar requests from Hungary, Estonia, Russia and a few other places, and I'm currently looking into full Unicode search support, which should hopefully cover everyone's needs. Sadly, php itself has only recently acquired "full" Unicode support, and older servers (like my host) just choke on it. Unicode handling is also slow.
The alternative (if plan A fails) is to have some kind of plug-in language support, and if I go this way, I will *definitely* be in touch at the early testing stage!
Now here's the really fun answer..
corzoogle ALREADY DOES!
It all depends on your server setup, and the encoding of the documents you are searching. I do know that corzoogle is installed on some *really* foreign sites, and they get results in everything from Arabic to Swahili! It just works, and no one says a word!
Right now (as a wee test) I added the word "öändersonå" to my main title page, and then corzoogled for it. See the attached jpeg. Weird huh?
In the main .htaccess file of your site, add the line..
php_value default_charset utf-8
If, for some reason, you don't have access to the .htaccess file (now that's ironic) you could add a line to corzoogle itself, up near the top of the script, this..
might just make it all happen. I'll probably put that in the next release. (done, and just wait for the screams!) Please let me know how that works out, and thanks for caring about corzoogle!
