    Hey,

    I figure that a lot of people who use this script consider themselves optimization freaks. Myself included. As such, I think it's pretty likely that a lot of people also use SphinxSearch in their applications. It's pretty much a family member of Memcache, MariaDB, etc. I haven't made an application in over three years that doesn't use Sphinx rather than regular SQL functions. It makes no sense not to use it. Especially as it is part of MariaDB by default (live indices).

    In my opinion it should be part of the installer. The searchd part, that is. It's actually quite a simplistic addon, too.

    Keep up the good work Eva.

    P.S. When is MariaDB 10 going to make it's default debut appearance? :p

    Sphinxsearch for CentOS is just a matter of installing right RPM from official sphinxsearch web site so yeah fairly easy. However, different applications will config and setup sphinx.conf/ini so there isn't one size fits all and depends on the web app. Only experience I have is with vBulletin 4.x and digitalpoint's sphinx search vB4 plugin and that has a sphinx.conf/ini that is vastly different from default sphinx yum install setups. So can't predict everyones usage, so best left to end user :)

    MariaDB 10 is default starting with .08 beta CentOS 7.x - How to help test .08 CentOS 7 Betas with Github code ? | Centmin Mod Community ;)
