    Search Engine for Website


    Well, as the subject of this thread says. I'm wanting to create an
    option on my website that allows visitors to search the entire site for
    the phrase they enter into a form. Clicking the submit button will fire
    off the search and return links to pages that contain their search phrase.

    Do you know of a way to create this using just HTML or PHP? I'd prefer
    not to use a MySQL database or some third party software/script. I'd like to write my own script and keep it simple as possible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

    It's possible to write your own search engine script without using a MySQL database. However, you'll probably find the code to be much simpler with MySQL than without. That said, please see this page and this page for examples of what's involved in building such a script (using MySQL).
