Only shapefile part has been properly developed. The PG connection  
should be adjusted.
At the moment I've never needed a search system to PG passing from  
Mapserver. But it could be useful.

there's no implementation to catch the PostgreSQL connection.
On old code of Paul (xsearch,php) you can find:
if($oLayer->connectiontype == MS_POSTGIS){

      $searchstring = $szSearchfield . ' ~* \'' . $searchstring .'\'  ';

} else {  // Shapefile

If you have time to test and debug your contribution will be
