Easy way to install a software in centos is using YUM but due to missing mysql dependency issue in 64bit OS we are installing Sphinx search server from Source tarball pacakge.
We use sphinx in couple of applications. We opted sphinx to implement powerful search engine on couple of applications. We thought this info would be useful for
<devw3’s>. So here it is.
Sphinx is a full text open source search engine. We found it really easy to integrate in existing projects by using any of the databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL, SQLite, Drizzle etc
We are using Sphinx search server on huge MySQL database and its blazing fast.
