On my Ubuntu 18.04 machine using
mysql 5.7 I have installed sphinxsearch 2.2 and now I'd like to add SphinxSE as an engine so that I can connect to it without language-specific medium.
The docs on sphinix is rather old (for
MySQL 5.1.x) and involves compiling mysql from source which I shy away from as it may break the existing stuff.
So I'm wondering if there is any straightforward solution for this which does not require source compilation?
