[Nikto-discuss] Scan Database Field Documentation Error

I came across an inaccuracy in Nikto 2's documentation that makes
writing/modifying tests pretty confusing. In the documentation, the "Match 1
(AND)" and "Match 1 (OR)" scan db fields follow the "Match 1" field, in that
order. However, the set_scan_items subroutine that loads the checks uses
them in the opposite order. In other words, in my user-defined tests I was
trying to match responses for either of two strings but was instead
searching for both, causing my checks to fail.
