The following steps are required to install Sphinx on a server:

  • Install and update the project to the latest current version;
  • Select the item 7. Manage sphinx in the pool > 1. Create sphinx instance on server in the virtual application menu:

  • Then, enter the host name, on which the Sphinx search server will be launched (in this example server1):

  • Select database of website system core data from the list:

  • Confirm the launch of full reindexing after Sphinx server is installed:

  • Wait until the task of Sphinx installation and reindexing is completed:

Attention! Task execution may take a rather long time (up to 2-3 hours and more) depending on the task complexity, data volume used in such tasks, capacity and server load. You can check the currently executed tasks by using menu item 5. Background tasks in the pool > 1. View running tasks. If task completion log files are needed to be reviewed, they are located in the following directory /opt/webdir/temp.

Note: Manual configuration of Sphinx search engine is described in this lesson.
