MySQL: Full text search for multiple words


mysqlI notice one of my MySQL full text search result for multiple words doesnt seems correct. After some checking, i realize i don’t know how to do full text search for multiple words! LOL. This is because i use ONLY single words during testing. After go thru the MySQL documentation again, now i get a clear view of how to structure the SQL statement for full text search (multiple words)!

Here are some example for MySQL full text search for multiple words:-

Advertisements

  • ‘”MySQL database”‘ – Find rows that contain the exact phrase “MySQL database”. (eg, rows that contain “MySQL database good” but NOT “MySQL excellent database”). Note that the double quote characters that enclose the phrase are operator characters that delimit the phrase.
  • ‘tech blog’ – Find rows that contain at least contain one of the two words
  • ‘+mysql -mssql’ – Find rows that contain the word “mysql” but not “mssql”
  • ‘data*’ – Find rows that contain words such as “data”, “database” or “databases”.

Hope these examples help you in MySQL full text search for multiple words 🙂

    and why is not working without BOOLEAN MODE?
