    Document search in Intranet?

    Ok, I got a semi-tedious taks to look at a search engine for documents inside an intranet site that we have. So, lets say, we have an Intranet where reports about meetings can be stored (Word .doc files), and we want to be able to search the word files withing the intranet. I think the google appliance does this, but it is a bit overboard to buy a new appliance for some users, thought the users that will use this feature are very important in the company.
    Well, we have the advantage that our web server runs on Linux, with apache and php, so there should be something open source that we can integrate it

    If you still need something to scan the intranet for documents, you can use share scan I don't know if it is free ware but it is the most useful scanning program that you will ever find.

    Thanks Nicon, but if I am right, that is a scanning tool for local or remote files, right? I need to search documents saved in a web server (I believe it is either Fedora or Debian), with Linux OS, and the search has to be available in the Intranet page, so in easy words, I need to search hosted documents (or something like that:P)

    Well, I did take a look in Tucows, and there are a couple of programs that might work, but I will have to test them. If anyone had used this type of search, please give some input.
    Tks Nicon

    website, a directory on server, single webpage, etc.). You can define the
    level of importance (weight) of various document properties and parts that
    are taken into account during searching.

    Reverend. We had a couple of problems with the make, but I finally got it to install in a different server. But in the last step for the instalation it says to create the indexer, by running from the sbin folder "# ./indexer -Ecreate"
    I don't have any files in the sbin. Is it possible I still had some problems with the instalation?
    Also, the instalation file did not say anything about users, but I am assuming it needs to be compiled as root (since as a regular user it did not work) and that apache would need access to the cgis. Anything else??

    Ok, found out part of my errors. When answering for the database support (postgresql) I typed y intead of yes. Once I used Yes it even asked me for the path instalation of pgsql ()
    Fedora installs it by default in the /var/lib/pgsql, and I created a simlink to in from /usr/local so I don't even have to change the path but still did not worked. At least it gave me this error at the end
    Code:
    In file included from ../include/udm_common.h:743,
                     from indexer.c:45:
    ../include/udm_db_int.h:24:22: error: libpq-fe.h: No such file or directory
    In file included from ../include/udm_common.h:743,
                     from indexer.c:45:
    ../include/udm_db_int.h:69: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'PGresult'
    make[2]: *** [indexer.lo] Error 1
    What could be wrong??
