DevShed starts off a new series of articles today with the first part of a series covering the construction of a search engine with MySQL and PHP5.
It's valid to notice that aside from the wealth of web-based applications that can be built quite easily with PHP, there's one in particular that's becoming very popular with many modern web sites as they grow in size. In this case, I'm talking about developing an internal search engine for any web site, by using the capacities provided by the powerful MySQL/PHP 5 tandem. [...] In this series, which is comprised of three instructive tutorials, I'm going to teach you how to build a web-based search application that can be easily adapted to suit your personal needs.
Part one talks about the creation of the front end for the app, how to perform searches against your data from a PHP5 script into a MySQL database and brining some of the modules of the application together (the code to both make the database request and output the results).
