The data being searched would need to be stored in a structured form - not just freeform text on your pages. Is the data currently stored in a database?
I assumed that this would be the case. I have not started collecting the data as I wanted to complete my site first. What database is a good one to be used in junction with a search feature?
- If you're on a Linux/Apache server, it most likely supports MySql & PHP
- If you're on a Windows server, it likely supports MSSql & ASP or .NET.
- Unsure which? Ask your host.

Are there any good writeups / tutorials on MySQL and creating a search?
