    site search engine

    I'm wondering, if I'm running my own server, is there some sort of search engine that I can run myself that's part of my site? Complete with a spider and all? Some open source search engine software?

    Easiest way

    Is to just use google. Google will let you put up a toolbar and search only your site if you want.

    Then you don't need any special software!

    exactly, thats what does. you don't even need the toolbar really you could write a simple search that replaces the user's string with a variable, then send the query to google.

    example query to google: $userssearch

    And you're not going to be able to set up a better search engine on your own than Google has. Of course if you just want to set up a cool search engine on your own site that is specific to your files, I have found that this program:

    works well.
