Sphider is a light search-engine package for adding your own search-function to one or a handfull of websites.


[edit] Why you'd want it

It's a pure PHP search-engine which stores the search-data in a MySQL database. It's a typical LAMP application which runs on any *nix server.

[edit] What it's not

It's not designed to be a "near-global" search-engine like YaCy or Google, it's made for a few sites.

The DataparkSearch Engine may be a better choice for a hundred or a thousand websites, Sphider
