Here are a few videos those of you who are just getting started with Sphinx may find useful. The first video demonstrates a very simple implementation with Ubuntu, PHP, and MySQL. The second video is also about installing on Ubuntu. And, the last video discusses fulltext query syntax. Check ‘em out.
Quick Start with Ubuntu
This video follows the steps taken in this blog post (with a few minor deviations). So, if you like copying and pasting, take a look at it.
Many MySQLers have found Sphinx to be very useful in beefing up their full text search functionality. When compared with MySQL, Sphinx provides many more fulltext indexing and search options (and better performance).
The basic idea is this: add and install the PPA, put some data into a MySQL table, configure Sphinx to index that data, write some PHP (using mysqli commands) so that we can see the results of a Sphinx search in the browser. It’s a very basic demonstration for those of you who have never searched with Sphinx. Take a look (and make sure you view at the highest quality):
Another Example with Ubuntu
The steps taken in this video are outlined in this blog post.
Fulltext Search Operators
This video outlines Sphinx’s fulltext query syntax. And, we wrote about operator syntax and precedence caveats in this blog post. Watch to learn more about text search syntax with Sphinx.
