General Site Search - Tutorials?

Recommended Posts

Something that has been asked of me and I have not personally done yet is being able to make a general search of a website.  Making it so that it seaches the website the user is on I mean.

Are there any good tutorials out there for doing this? 

Is the general idea for something like this is have PHP go through the actual files in the web directory locating the search phrase and if it finds it display a link to that page?

Seems a bit tricky to have php run through all the directories on a website.  I would have to make it limit to particular directories. Wouldn't want admin pages or mysql connetion scripts showing up ;)
