I am implementing a search on my site and was wondering which will be
the best way to go about it.
We want a full text search and an advance search.
We will have huge amounts of data that we would want to search. - on
I went through the plugins acts_as_ferret and acts_as_solr.
but ferret seems to have a locking problem at high load and solr needs
a java server.
So what do you recommend? how do we go about this?
What will be the overheads of solr? extra costs/complexity?
Details of my database: My site is about surveys on colleges, and
hence will have surveys_table, comments_table, testimonial_table, etc.
I want to give an option for the users to search these surveys!
I know this topic has been discussed many a times..but I couldnt find
the answer I wanted.
Thanks in advance!
