Wordpress plugin for Full Text Search

I'm looking for a plugin for full text search for WP.
The requirement is that it should search inside the comments also & should highlight the found words, not only list where the word exists...

Clarify your question just a bit.

State whether you're talking about searching an existing FTS (Full Text Search) index in a specific data table...


You're going to hand off creating this index to a plugin, like those listed above.

Keep in mind FTS has database requirement to implement.

https://mariadb.com/kb/en/library/full-text-index-overview provides details of MariaDB's very fast InnoDB based FTS system.

If you're running older versions of MySQL, likely FTS is either missing or uses the old style MyISAM storage engine, which creates many problems if you're modifying your FTS data repeatedly. MyISAM FTS will only work well if your word index only changes very infrequently.

Your first step is to check into your runtime environment + determine exactly what version of MariaDB or MySQL is running, to determine how best to proceed... as your first step may be to change hosting.
