  • 404 not found

    I've been using Zoom for 3 years. Now after re-installing following a crash, I keep getting a 404 not found page instead of search results. I'm using version 6.0 build 1029 professional edition.

    When I go to my site at I can search with no problem, but can't search when using the installed search engine code.

    My code is simple:

    <form method="get" action="search.php">
    <input name="zoom_query" size="20" type="text">
    <input value="Search" type="submit">

    The search_template.html is unmodified by me and has
    <!--ZOOMSEARCH--> on a separate line.

    The search engine may be tested at

    No link back url is listed. I'm not embedding the search page within another PHP page. The search form appearance is 'advanced'

    I've tried Chrome and Firefox.

    All the pages are indexed and uploaded okay.

    Where am I failing to connect the dots?

    Thank you.

    It's a path issue.

    Your "search.php" page is in a subfolder named "search".

    Your "searchenginetest.htm" page (where the above <form> HTML is placed), is in the root folder (the folder one level up from "search")

    So your form tag should look more like this:

    <form method="get" action="search/search.php">

    That should work.
