Php – Google-like Search Engine in PHP/theSQL


We have OCRed thousands of pages of newspaper articles. The newspaper, issue, date, page number and OCRed text of each page has been put into a mySQL database.

We now want to build a Google-like search engine in PHP to find the pages given a query. It's got to be fast, and take no more than a second for any search.

How should we do it?

You can also try out SphinxSearch. Craigslist uses sphinx and it can connect to both mysql and postgresql.
