Developer.com:
Creating a Code Search Engine with PHP and MySQL
April 12, 2007 @ 09:30:00

Developer.com has posted a new tutorial by Jason Gilmore about the creation of a simple search engine based around a MySQL database and using PHP to perform the queries.

He starts with the base of the application - the database schema (including loading data into it) - and works up from there. He opts to go with the fulltext search type as it can provide a huge performance boost over just using something like LIKE statements in your query. He also includes a bit of HTML for help make the output easier to use.
