Newly created Web repository not showing up in explorer

I'm trying to create an index which would finally enable me to search the 'CNN' website (following the 'how to' document : 'HOW TO SET UP A WEB REPOSITORY AND CRAWLING IT FOR INDEXING'). I'm unable to assign the web repository which I created in an earlier step to the index because it doesn't show up in the repository/folder listing. I can't even see it under 'Content Administration -> KM Content -> Repositories'.

What exactly am I doing wrong?!

thanks,

Biju.

    There could be many things causing this, as I also had some trouble with Web Repositories at first.

    -Is the portal server behind a proxy? If this is the case you need to specify the proxy either in the repository or in the portal proxy service.

    -Have you added the website as an http system as indicated in the docs?

      Hi Karsten,

      - We're on EP6 SP2.

      - Yes, I'm referring to the document you mentioned.

      - Yes, the repository does show up with a green light under KM -> Component Monitor.

      BTW, I was able to bring up the web repository now that I've specified under 'System Admin ® System Config ® Service Config ® Applications ® com.sap.portal.ivs.httpservice ® Services ® proxy ® HTTP-Bypass Proxy Servers' that everything under 'mycompany.com' must be bypassed. I'd originally specified the proxy set up in the TREX configuration, which runs on another (physical) server than the portal.

      I don't really get the connection, but essentially took the cue from the earlier reply I got.

      So, in short, I think the problem is solved at least for the moment.

      Thanks again for your help.
