I have spent days on this thing and I have one, enormous problem. By the way, I'm 55 and fairly new to all of this (Php and Mysql). On my linux server I easily created the database and added the tables. However, when I try to run the populate.php script in a browser I get a parsing error. I have added "populate.phprl=http://www.cnn.com/" at the bottom of the script, as advised by a previous poster. However, with little knowledge of php I am assuming that I am adding it minus brackets, in the wrong place, etc -something is not right. If I do not add the previous line I simply get the message about needing to add a URL for indexing.


Very specifically - please - where does a line like this go and what, precisely, is it's syntax (should it be proceeded by } and followed by {, etc.)?
