I have been using Fluid Dynamics SE, but as the site has grown, it's getting
slower and less manageable and it's no longer being developed.
I have been looking at a few alternatives:
InterSpire FastFind - looks easy to use, but I'm not sure it has the realm
or category specific search capability I need.
MNOGO Search - have installed this and it's fast, but development appears to
have stopped, it doesn't have a web config interface and I can't see how to
get reports and stats out of it.
OpenWebSpider - looks promising, but there seems to be very little feedback
If I have to purchase a licence, I don't really want to pay more than a $100
per licence (I need two). It needs to be as close to Google/Yahoo, etc.
functionality as possible for search users. I'm running Linux/Apache/MySQL,
etc. Performance needs to be good - 50,000-100,000 pages will be indexed,
including some dynamic pages - the server is a 2GB RAM twin Opteron. I'd
like to index configured realms separately and have access to key words
Any help will be very gratefully received!
Re: Local site search engine - any recommendations?

GreyWyvern's Orca Search looks very featureful. It is apparently optimised
for somewhat smaller sites than the one you describe, but given that it's
free, you could still give it a try to see what sort of performance you
GreyWyvern frequents this neighbourhood, so may be able to further
elucidate. In particular, I don't know whether it takes advantage of
MySQL5's full text indexing capabilities.
I'm currently writing a blog/CMS tool and when I get to the search
engine bit, I am planning on stealing^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hborrowing heavily
