Install sphinx using yum CentOS/RedHat

Ouff, sphinx!!!! I used to sigh when someone talks to me about sphinx. But now I find it easy. Try it yourself.

yum install sphinxsearch  should do the trick normally.

If the above didn’t work, download the sphinx rpm from http://sphinxsearch.com/downloads/release/

My machine is centos5/32bit so I downloaded http://sphinxsearch.com/downloads/accept.php?file=sphinx-2.0.8-1.rhel5.i386.rpm

cd /usr/local/src

wget http://sphinxsearch.com/downloads/accept.php?file=sphinx-2.0.8-1.rhel5.i386.rpm


Now you can use yum to install this.

yum localinstall –nogpgcheck sphinx-2.0.8-1.rhel5.i386.rpm

Once it is installed, the sphinx config is available at /etc/sphinx.conf

You can start/stop sphinx using /etc/rc.d/init.d/sphinx start/stop

Indexer can be run as

/usr/bin/indexer –all
