thanks for your clear statement.

this means for me nothing more and nothing less than:
just forget mnogosearch for the moment.

because i know that my provider will never do this for me.
and i cannot change the provider just because the installation of
mnogosearch is so far beyond my possibilities.

which is very sad.

i fighted for days with the so odious EXT indexed_search and the
even more hateful EXT crawler, both of them seeming to be a piece of 
unfinished code work, not to talk about the almost insane and 
non-explicit manuals...

therefore i have to stick with those two idiotic EXT until mngosearch 
offers an easier way to be installed.

thanks anyway
