For my company, we're using a on-the-server search engine to let customers search our site. We're using an internal one to keep them on our site while they search. We've been using ht://dig but I'm not really pleased with the results. While looking around, I'm not finding different search engine projects all that easily. Does anyone have any suggestions for free/OSS search engine software for a LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) server?

I'm going to comment here so that you don't think I've missed this post

I've had a hell of a time with search, and I can't recommend anything.

You may want to buy the Google search appliance if they still sell it. I think it's a custom piece of hardware from Google.

I was afraid of that. I mean, ht://dig works -- but it's just really archaic and a pain to integrate into a PHP-driven site. I've found a project called TSEP (http://tsep.sf.net) which even appears to be worked on regularly! However, I don't think anyone in charge of coding speaks English . . . and it doesn't work on install . . .

As far as buying Google's search applicance, my boss is a ridiculous cheapskate. If it's not free, he's not interested.

If I can get TSEP working, I'll share my results here.

I can't comment on whether it's any good or not because I've never actually used it, however I've been told that mnoGoSearch is pretty good.

As long as you're running some sort of Unix, it's free. The Windows versions look rather expensive, so I'm guessing it might a bugger to set up. There is pay-for support available...

Tarnish -- this shows promise I've done some hunting via Google and SourceForge for different search engine suites, but never heard of this one. I'll take a look, and let y'all know the results :)
