Web Site Search Engine Recommendations

P: n/a
I know this question is asked from time to time, but the offerings change
often enough that it deserves repeating.

I have a dynamic database-driven web site using PHP/MySQL on Linux. I need
to integrate a search tool that will search both the database and static
pages and output a list of links corresponding to the search string entered.

I am an experience web developer, but have never worked with web site search
engines before. I know enough to know that I don't need to write my own. I
have looked around some and there seems to be a large variety of solutions.
I'm on a small budget (isn't most everyone?!) so either a free open source
or reasonable one-time license is required. I need something that's easy to
configure and auto indexes when new content is added--either to the database
or static pages.

All comments/suggestions welcome.

Thanks!

There's PHP Dig: http://www.phpdig.net/

My experience is that it doesn't work very well :-|

Alternatives welcomed.
