Ok, so first if you want to just *display* that data you need to do two
1) In the swish config file (the file passed to swish-e when indexing
with the -c option):
# just examples
PropertyNames author pdf_version producer
2) in the swish.cgi config file add those fields to "display_props"
display_props => [qw/swishlastmodified swishdocsize swishdocpath author pdf_version/],
"display_props" says to fetch those fields when searching making them
available for display. Only the default (perl-code) template display those automatically.
The HTML::Template will if you apply the patch I sent to the list the
other day (oh, looks like it got filtered by the list server -- I'll
attach below), otherwise you would have to manually add the properties
to display into the templates.
If you want to *search* those meta tags (instead of just display them in
your results) you need to:
1) in the swish-e config file:
2) in the swish.cgi config file
metanames => [qw/ swishdefault swishtitle swishdocpath author/],
Look at the top of swish.cgi for more discussion of metanames. Sorry
there's not better docs, but most of the config is commented.

Depends on your web server, I suppose. By default swish.cgi tries to
open .swishcgi.conf in the current directory:
At the top of swish.cgi:
my $DEFAULT_CONFIG_FILE = '.swishcgi.conf';
If that's not good for you then you edit swish.cgi to point to a

For that you can read the docs and post again if something isn't clear.
A good place to start is where you see the word:
