    Searching Question

    I've got a client with a very large site. Right now, the site is fully static, but with my help, parts of it will be dynamic. He wants the site to be fully searchable. Obviously, though, any search that I do is designed for a database, while filesystem searches have to be done differently. And we don't want two separate searches.

    Does anyone have any ideas, scripts, etc. on how to best go about a search system that can search both static and dynamic?

    I have been looking into some pre-written scripts that spider the site. I've looked at PHPDig, but am having problems with the spidering process quitting on its own with no visible error. Am working on debugging, but just seeing if anyone has any input.

    Thanks.

    check out Atomz search. It's the VERY best available.

    Not a bad idea, but:

    (1) It costs money.
    (2) This is a HUGE site this dude has, and he'd have to go for the meaty plan to cover it.

    Any other ideas?

    Try this...

    http://www.picosearch.com/

    It's 1500 pages before you have to pay. It's almost as good as Atomz, and the monthly charge if you go over 1500 is about 5% of the cost of Atomz, with 3000 pages.... very fair.
