    Hi anyone.

    I need to build a commercial site. A lot of info in there.
    So to have the search feature implemented is A MUST in that site.
    Question:

    how to do it?
    Do i have to use PHP for it?
    The database?
    Database seach?

    Kinda confused. What the tables should have in the database?
    Keywords and the links to the pages where that keywords are displayed?

    How the search function on other sites have been build?

    ANY INFO WILL BE APPRECIATED. ANY LINKS RELATED TO THE SUBJECT WILL BE APPRECIATED.

    Thank you.

    P.S. I don't want to rely on third party scripts to make the search on my site.

    PHP would only search strings you feed it (i.e. specific content in a string).

    If you want support for textual search, you can use the built in features of databases.
    All page/text content has to be stored in the database, and pages are populated through retrieval of database stored text.

    You can read about MySQL's (most commonly used with PHP) full-text search capabilities here
