I downloaded, installed, enabled and configured the linkchecker module. When I run it from the Drupal interface, it seems to be checking but I don't see in the report a test link (within ) that I have purposefully misspelled. This test link is to an external site. Does it matter for the link checker module if my development site is not publicly accessible-- I think it is accessible only from campus.

Linkchecker version 6.x-2.7; drupal-6.26


Found Link checker works after 'run cron'

-- Found in video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hcl9iwIFZ2k
That a cron job has to be run after the configuring.
-- I had already set for automatic running of cron job. For some reason it didn't work.
-- It worked after running cron job manually.
site-url/cron.php for D5 and D6

-- OR For Drupal 6.x, see in your site: Administer > Reports > Status report > Cron maintenance tasks > Run cron manually.

Steps for checking links:

  1. Make sure link checker configuration is what you want
  2. http://site-url/cron.php in browser to run cron job (it yields blank page after the run)
  3. See report for broken links and follow up specific links.
