How do you set up an internal search engine for a web site? For example, if I am selling products for someone to quickly find what they are looking for?
Does anyone have the appropriate coding or information about software?
Thanks Gavin

Gavin,

How are you constructing your product line-up?  In flat text files? In SQL? In something else?  Any search engine must be dovetailed with the database it is searching.  Please give us some more info on yout structure . . .

YOu will need to use a CGI program or something like ASP... You could keep all the values in a database and then search through that displaying the results... So, you would need access to a CGI-BIN or have access to ASP on a server...

If you are using IIS as webserver, you can use IndexServer to index & search your site. Also other webservers might have their own search facilities coming with the product.
Indexserver builds a database of your website and provides you with pages to search through it.
