Ok maybe this question has been asked a million times and well I am going to be the million and first to ask as I consider myself pretty resourceful (google provides most answers) however this is something I am totally lost on.

Intro over now, I want to learn how to implement a search facility on a website. Is it a really difficult process, or could someone point me in the right direction to some tutorials or something.

I created a large website for a company and a search facility would be a great function to have.

Is there an easy way of doing that?

Cheers,
Rose :D

Is it on a Windows server, Linux, Unix...etc...?
Is ASP, JSP, PHP - any of the above, etc., supported? There's a lot of freebie scripts out there that can set up search stuff, but knowing some details might help someone suggest a good script or method.

These might help.

php search scripts
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22php+search+scripts%22

asp search scripts
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22asp+search+scripts%22

cgi search scripts
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%22cgi+search+scripts%22

If you download this phpBB forum it incorporates a good internal search script. It may take some serious modification to meet your needs, but it works very well here.

Okies I will check those out. Which kind of script do you think works better, and do I need anything special to edit it?

I use HTML-Kit for all my editing (actually, you could do it it note-pad or wordpad -- but html-kit has some really good features and you can edit anything in it -- Oh, and it's FREE)

http://www.chami.com/html-kit/

Personally, I've found PHP pretty easy, and I've only been working with it for roughly a month. ASP is very similar, but uses Visual Basic commands. I haven't programmed in JSP yet, so no opinions there. Perl seems pretty easy and I've been able to modify most Perl CGI scripts with relative ease.

If I were doing it, I'd try PHP first.

As to the one you presented, at a quick glance, it looks relatively simple for the set up. Your biggest task will be setting up keywords.

Good luck.
