  • First we need to grab the Source pacakage from Sphinxsearch download section. use te below command to get the file.

    wget http://sphinxsearch.com/files/sphinx-2.0.4-release.tar.gz

    now we have sphinx source package in our server.

    First step is to uncompress the sphinx-2.0.4-release.tar.gz file using below command

    tar -zxf 'sphinx-2.0.4-release.tar.gz

    then enter into the directory sphinx-2.0.4-release

     cd sphinx-2.0.4-release

    Am installing sphinx in /usr/local/sphinx directory so we have to create the directory

    mkdir /usr/local/sphinx

    i want to install sphinx server in /usr/local/sphinx so i have to set the path while configure using -prefix option

     ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/sphinx

    we can specify sphinx to use MYSQL by adding –with-mysql to ./configure

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/sphinx --with-mysql

    if above command not able to find mysql libraries. we have to provide the libraries path

     ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/sphinx --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql

    For installing sphinx with PostgreSQL specify lik this –with-pgsql

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/sphinx --with-pgsql

    if above command not able to find pgsql libraries. we have to provide the libraries path

    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/sphinx --with-pgsql=/usr/local/include/postgresql

    next setp is make and make install

     make install
