Search engine

I work for a newspaper and have been trying to get CGI search engines to work.  I was wondering if anyone knew a good search engine or could help me get one to work.  I have tried WWWWAIS, SWISH, FREEWAIS-SF, GLIMPSE and HARVEST.  Any help would be appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If all you need is a simple search of some HTML-files, then I suggest that you take a look at Selena Sol's "Keyword Search" Perl Script, which can be found at http://www.eff.org/~erict/Scripts/keyword_search.html . It is relatively easy to setup (full instructions are supplied with the script, which is free), and gives your users access to at least the most basic search facilities.

If you want more advanced searc-options, then take a look at Excite for Web Servers at http://corp.excite.com/ews.html .

It gives you access to some very good search-facilities (for HTML-files), and is also relatively easy to setup.

Hope this is of some help to you...
