Please read the mailing list archives for the past week. There has
just been an extensive discussion on this topic which can't be easily
summarized in on e-mail.
Why don't you use the UDMSearch tool, which is exactly what you're
asking about - a way to index/search a web site using MySQL and
PHP3? You can find it from the Links page on the MySQL web site.
I would not recommend writing your own, unless you have too much
time on your hands and are very bored.
