True, Sphinx is not built on Lucene. But it does work great, and I was able to (a year later) find a long-term, in-house search solution with Sphinx that's pretty easy to tweak and maintain. I definitely recommend Sphinx.

Another note to say that, since Indextank got bought by LinkedIn, their status as a search service I could rely on has become unknown. I looked into installing Sphinx, and had little trouble getting exactly what I needed from it. I highly recommend trying out Sphinx.

@Max That was actually a different question than this one: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/5584/… If you want to post a question about your issue to this StackExchange I'd be happy to answer it if I can. If you are a non-programmer, you should consider hiring someone. Though, IndexTank is somewhat easy to get running.

SearchBlox, also built on Lucene, so same problems (for me) as the other Lucene solutions above.

Unfortunately they do not allow building of new tools based on their data.

Just a note to say that I'm getting most of my issues resolved with IndexTank, and it's looking like they will be able to get me where I need to be.

I would have to install Tomcat and all that as well, right? Is that much of a daunting prospect? Can it be done without root access?

This may be a bit more than I want to deal with.

Mods - I would add the tag 'site-search' to this post, but it's a new tag and I don't have the rep.
