Can I get some guidance for creating a php search box on a static website. I have LAMP set up on Ubuntu but have hardely any experience with databases and would like to know what is involved in building the box.

The usual approach is to 'spider' the contents, which stores, and indexes, the content in a database. Something like the following: Sphider - a php spider and search engine (a bit old) https://www.google.co.uk/search?sour...w=1680&bih=860 https://www.google.co.uk/search?aq=0...w=1680&bih=860
Google does have a custom search facility, but the ad free version is only free for nonprofits. Otherwise it costs $100 a year: Google Custom Search - Site search and more

You can implement the actual google search bar on your site: Google Custom Search - Site search and more
Within here you can pay $100 a year to remove all adverts on the results page. You can also filter the search to only show results from your site.
I haven't seen anything that is free that will allow you to do this.

Thanks Welshstew, sorry I did a double post and am using Sphider, Frinkky provided the link here. I have not had time to check what features it has with it though.
