How to efficiently perform search on my DB and Word documents on my server?

So I'm building a system for a client and they want to have a search functionality for all the data their users and clients upload to their service, that data includes Word documents and user text (plain text that'll be stored in a MySQL DB)

So what are the industry standards when it comes to search functionality for both Word docs and regular plain text data in a DB?

I of course want to have a good performance for the search so it won't over load the server...

BTW I use NodeJS as a backend if that matters (which I don't see why it would)

Thanks in advance
