Do we know which libraries? I'd have to write a perl script to get that information out of the web environment.naderman wrote:This is really just a plugin so sphinx will always have to be installed. Either you can do that on your server yourself or you get your hoster to do so. Or you compile it locally and upload it afterwards, this requires you to have the same version of libraries as the hoster though and can be a little tedious.
yes the path is correct. In the web environment, I can call tar and zip, does this mean exec() is enabled?naderman wrote:It should actually give a different error message for that but are you sure you have exec() enabled? Oh and are you sure that sphinx/bin/sphinx/bin is right?
So will there be a line in phpinfo that literally says exec() if it is enabled? Or will it be called something else? What am I looking for? or how do i test for exec()?naderman wrote:What I meant is that some hosters disable the PHP function called exec() which is used to execute those files.
Sorry for appearing thick. I'm a newbie to php but perl I know better. Anyway, exec() works in php.naderman wrote:Ask your hoster or write a script that uses a the function and see whether it works.
OOps I was using the latest one Ok, I'll try again. I wonder if I can compile on the webserver within my perl shell, certainly it can see 'make'. Thanks for your patience. I'll try with 0.9.7 (rinse, repeat )naderman wrote:Well then I have no idea either. But apparently it's not possible to execute sphinx for the webserver. Btw. this plugin requires 0.9.7 and does not work with the 0.9.8 betas/RCs
