Extension talk:SphinxSearch/Search suggestions

Clarification[edit]

Enchant isn't an extension but perhaps a application or package. Might also point out that aspell, ruby and rubygems (and gems install elif) is part of the enchant install. --Skunark 06:42, 21 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for the clarification. However, the way we use enchant does not require all of that. We are not using it to check English spelling. We are running it against a custom dictionary created out of the words actually in your wiki in order to find suggestions. Perhaps last time I installed it I did not realize I already had everything on my system already, and maybe those additional things are required. I will try installing it on a new system and will update the page with minimum requirements. Svemir Brkic 12:29, 21 September 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Devel Version Required?[edit]

Is the "devel" version of enchant needed? --Cwood (talk) 22:05, 28 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]

No, devel version is not required. --Svemir Brkic (talk) 23:25, 28 June 2012 (UTC)[reply]


Installation walkthrough[edit]

The installation instructions feel a little vague. I downloaded enchant with yast and then ran SphinxSearch_setup.php. I didn't see any dictionaries anywhere, though. Where are they generated? And should the dictionaries be referenced elsewhere after they're generated? I also enabled $wgSphinxSuggestMode = 'enchant' in LocalSettings.php, but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Can you provide more information about the installation process? Thanks! ----Cwood (talk) 19:54, 19 November 2012 (UTC)[reply]

The dictionaries were probably installed in the same directory as the SphinxSearch_setup.php or sphinx.conf (which I would guess is the SphinxSearch extension folder). As for enchant not working you need to also install php-enchant and restart apache (or your web server) to include the installed php-enchant library. Doing that worked for me. --Dmundra (talk) 17:01, 10 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks so much! I will give that a shot. --Cwood (talk) 17:23, 10 December 2012 (UTC)[reply]
