    Hello,

    I'm looking for a search engine with the ability to restrict searches to different directories on the same host. I'd also like to be able to prevent certain directories from being indexed. :confused:

    I've heard of iSearch, mnoGoSearch, htdig. Any suggestions or opinions would be appreciated.

    Not that it's of any use to you now, but I'm developing a site search tool at present.

    I'm expecting a beta version to be ready for public testing in about three months from now.

    Sounds interesting. I'm having trouble compiling htdig. Seems to be getting a bit long in the tooth.

    compiling htdig

    Getting a little OT, but I've solved my htdig compilation problem. The trick was to first run:
    Code:
    sudo bash
    ...so that the following flags could be made available to configure (all on one line):
    Code:
    CXXFLAGS=-Wno-deprecated CPPFLAGS=-Wno-deprecated ./configure

    I've been using phpdig for a while now, and it seems to work rather well... it indexed over 60,000 files and pages into a mysql database, and was load-happy and quick.

    Thanks for the tip. It looks great! Similar functionality to htdig, but doesn't use flat files and no compile headaches.

    Ksearch is supposedly good, Perl based with an indexing engine and a bit more in the way of configuration than entropy
