PHP Search Engine

P: n/a

I currently have a website (running on RedHat Linux) comprising a
large number of HTML files and PDF's. I currently use PHPMySearch
( which is a simple crawler, but
is clever enough to crawl PDF's.

I'd like to change one area of the site so that it's webform driven
using a PHP/MySQL combo. This will allow me to provide a complex
search to users that enables users to search for particular features
within content items within that section of the site.

However - I'd still like to be able to offer a site search. So: does
anyone know of a site search tool that can build an index from both
flat files and from a MySQL table?

So, I need a search engine that can:
- Index PDF's
- Search a database
- Search flat files

Any ideas anyone?
Cheers Michela.
