Field: "Your current I.P. address" In the middle part of the template you will see your current IP address (e.g. "184.108.40.206" or similar). This IP is also displayed in the field "Test IP". Field: "Hits since" This field displays the date from which hits are calculated. Field: "Logfile size in bytes" This field displays the logfile size. Button: "Set Test Mode" By clicking this button, you will store the IP in the botBase file. Button: "Reset Test Mode" By clicking this button, you will delete the IP from the botBase file and restore the previous version.
Note: "Description of Functionality Check" (Replace the name "yourshadowdomain.com" with the name of the Shadow Domain you are actually testing. Similarly, replace the name "fantomas.html" with the name of the phantom page you are actually testing.) In your web browser, enter: http://www.yourshadowdomain.com/fantomas.html If you are now redirected to the Core Domain specified when configuring and adapting the Central Keyword Switch (CKS), the setup is probably ok, depending on the next test. For this, click button "Refresh" and review the entries in the log file. If you cannot find an entry now, the configuration isn't right yet. Please review it before continuing! If you do find an entry, click button "Set Test Mode" to store your current IP (as entered in the field "Test IP") into the botBase file. Next, in your web browser call up the following again: http://www.yourshadowdomain.com/fantomas.html If you can see the phantom page now, the installation is ok. (Note that the phantom page will typically be quite ugly - this is fine because it is not intended for human perusal anyway. This is how optimized "spider fodder" will normally appear.) Now, delete your own current IP from the botBase list by clicking button "Reset Test Mode". Only after these tests have been conducted successfully, should you submit phantom pages to the search engines in Step 6!
Button: "Flush Log File" The log file's content can be deleted from the control interface. To cut on download time, we suggest you delete the log file regularly, e.g. (depending on your system's capacity) after 80-100 entries. We strongly recommend downloading the log file (e.g. via FTP) regularly to your local system for offline evaluation. Tip: The display of data files in their windows can be configured by setting the following variables in the configuration script "SMSetupe.pm": $wraplog = wrap logfile display (default is: "virtual"); may alternatively be set to "off". $wrapurls = wrap urls list display (default is: "off"); may alternatively be set to "virtual". As different web browsers will convert the "wrap" command in textarea fields in different manners, the visual display can be customized in this manner.
