How do I do exact phrase matches using FULLTEXT?
I have this 2 million row table, full of text data, that I want to search
for an exact phrase. When I say:
select * from Laws WHERE MATCH(Line) AGAINST ('MDMA') ORDER BY ID;
It works correctly, returning 1 row, MUCH faster than doing a "select ...
But when I do:
select * from Laws WHERE MATCH(Line) AGAINST ('growth hormone') ORDER BY ID;
MySQL returns every row with either "growth" OR "hormone" in it, which isn't
what I wanted. Is there a way to only return the rows where the exact
phrase "growth hormone" is present?
