Are there any document management systems (ideally free) that support full text searching within txt, doc, pdf, xls files. ?

I have a few hundred files, that I'd like to store centrally and have have full search, retrieve and view via a web interface..

Can this be done ?

I have a PHP/MySQL Server running...

There are a couple of open source (free) programs. Just search Google for docfetcher or puggle portable search. I think docfetcher will be more suited to you.

Hope this helps.

Thanks I'll take a look
DocFetcher seems good... does it have / support a web front end ?

I think you can access it by using web browser on port 8080 so I assume it can manipulated by third party software or home made programs as well.
