Subject Re: Using mainfoldCF as a webcrawler with tika and solr

Hi Sven,

Please have a look at the Simple History report to see what happened to the
documents you are interested in.
The Web Connector will fetch binary documents no problem, but it sounds
like you have something else in your configuration that is causing them to
be rejected.  The configuration of the web connector, as well as the
configuration of the downstream pipeline connectors, all are able to reject
documents based on mime type.  The Simple History will give you a reason
for that rejection.  If not, you can turn on connector debugging and you
can see the decisions that go into whether to index a document or not.

Karl
