How to get the Active Python documentation search engine running?

Posted by wuerger on 2018-04-14 18:04

I have installed Active Python 3.5 x64 on Windows 10 and XAMPP for Apache server.

In C:\xampp\apache\conf\extra\ i have created a file active-python-manual.conf with the content

    Alias /active-python-manual "C:/Python35/Doc/"
    <Directory "C:/Python35/Doc">
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Require local

After an restart of Apache i can reach the Active Python documentation by typing http://localhost/active-python-manual/ in the browser.

I found a page called "Search" http://localhost/active-python-manual/python/search.html which is originally located on C:\Python35\Doc\python\search.html

But if i type something in the form and press the search button, nothing happens. The search is running forever.

How can i get it running?
Thank you!
