MySQL(i) isn’t a language. SQL is a language used by a lot of database server software.
PHP can connect to MySQL using the extensions to PHP (You probably won’t have to worry as normally enabled by default).
Using the manual for PHP and MySQL integration at
Simply use mysqli_connect() instead of mysql only. MySQL isn’t really suited for creating searches engines because its fulltext search isn’t that good. For that case, I’d rather go for PostgreSQL, which is a bit heavier than MySQL, but also does a better job.
As for the PHP extension, I’d suggest learning PDO as it abstracts the whole database process and lets you use the same methods for every DBMS. You could also consider using an ORM.
