Question Is there a web application for searching and viewing documents?


I have a Mandriva server with a lot of documents (mostly in pdf format) on it. I want to be able to search on this server for certain documents, via the browser. Most preferably searching through the full contents, but a search on file name only would also do. When a document is found, it should be able to download it from the server, or view it on-line.

Does anyone know whether such a program exists?

Thanking you in advance for your help.

What you're looking for is called a document management system, specifically in this case a web-based document management system. There are slews of them out there but which one would be best for your particular situation I'm unsure of, there are usually a wide breadth of criteria to consider when looking at DMS.

Well, I'm not really looking for a DMS, because that's a little bit over-dimensioned for my purposes.The web app I'm looking for should just have basic search and view capabilities.

Well if you assume 'view' handled by the browser, then it shouldn't be a massive issue finding something that can index pdf files for searching and let the link be download-able or viewable. Really even that though is just a lightweight dms.
