I'm running Swish 1.3.2 with your supplied configuration and it worked
fine.  Are you sure you're not getting any other output?  One thing to
double check is that swishspider is properly working; make sure it has the
correct path to perl on the first line and that it has execute permission.
Once you have done that, try running swishspider manually to see if it works:

./swishspider ./ss

It should then create three files ss.contents, ss.links and ss.response.
If you are seeing some other behaviour, please send it back to the group.
