October 31, 2011 @ 13:09:29

As linked to on DZone.com today, there's a video series about PHP/MySQL and creating a basic search engine from Adam Khoury's collection:

Fresh from Adam Khoury's massive library of instructional videos comes a four-part, full-fledged tutorial on searching a MySQL database using PHP. The tutorials use the 'worked example' format (like Khan Academy), which makes learning relatively painless for newbies and not completely useless for more experienced developers.

The four videos require you to have at least a decent working knowledge of putting PHP and MySQL together and show you how to:

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.

In this article I'll offer a simplified version of this search engine, introducing you to some compelling PHP and MySQL features along the way. You might adopt what you learn towards building your own search engine, or towards other applications.

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.

roScripts.com:
PHP search engine
March 30, 2007 @ 09:55:00

The roScripts website has a new tutorial that anyone just starting out to create a search engine with PHP and MySQL should get their hands...er eyes on. It steps through the creation of a simple PHP-based search engine, showing multiple methods to achieve the goal.

The right search engine on your website won't bring you more traffic but it will help your visitors to better locate things so it will keep them on your pages. A good search engine implemented can increase your hits with almost 30% and this is tested. I'm not talking just to have a tutorial.

The different methods the show how to implement include:

  • using a straight LIKE on each word entered
  • paring down those results using ORs on other columns too
  • implementing the Porter Stemmer algorithm
  • finding matches that contain the term but not only one part of it
  • Full-text searches

It's a good overview of some of the basic steps to getting your own search up and running, but some of them, when applied to sites with larger amounts of data behind them, wouldn't be useful at all (slowness mainly).
