mnoGoSearch is an open source full-featured SQL based web search engine. mnoGoSearch consists of two parts. The first part is an indexing mechanism - indexer. indexer walks over HTML hypertext links and stores information about the documents in the database. The second part is a Web CGI front-end search.cgi which displays HTML form and search results in the browser. search.cgi uses information collected by indexer.

Note: A PHP and a Perl front-ends are also available.

The first public version of mnoGoSearch was released in November 1998. The search engine was named UDMSearch until the project was acquired by Lavtech.Com Corp. in October 2000 and its name changed to mnoGoSearch.
