How to search multiple words at a time in Mysql php

If you want to learn how can search multiple words from Mysql table in a single query in php. You have show any web site there is on search textbox available for search data from that website. User enter the search query and it will result search result. This type of things we will learn in this post. For this things I have make one form with one textbox for entering search query and one button for search. When user click on search button use's request will send to server and on server side if user enter more than one words than that words will be converted into array by using explode() function and from that array I will make search string with mysql LIKE operator with that array and making complete search query for more than one words. In Video you can get get more information in details.
