For Vbulletin 4 I suggest using DigitalPoint's sphinx mod. This is the link although you will need to join as a premium member at $25 for a month.

It's early days but this has been simple to install and is working well on a forum of just over 3,000,000 posts. I'm still on a development version as I'm moving from a different CMS, but will post if I have any problems once I go live.

I got this running with boggseric's summary last night.

I'd like to point out this old Orban post, which I found helpful. It's a little out of date, so don't follow the instructions word for word. But it fills in some helpful background information like creating the counter tables.

It's also worth mentioning that I did have to make a few changes to the cron files to get them working properly. It's not a big deal, but helpful to know for those that aren't familiar with shell scripts and would like to plug and play. I'll post my files with comments after I get them cleaned up.

It would be great to see step by step instructions for vb 3.8.
Orbans post is for vb 3.6
Is anybody willing to write this?

Didn't matter for me.

Does anyone know how to include search for groups, blogs, thread prefixes, attachments, VM, PM and albums?

The only real sphinx search for 3 series is searchlight. The best out there...

Alfa1 17 Jul 2010 04:40

Possibly. But that costs an arm and a leg.

KevinL 17 Jul 2010 05:10

Very very true haha at least it is worth it :)

I just noticed Sphinx 1.10-beta has been released. With real time index support. Sounds amazing :)

However if you have a big board , compensating that cost will max take 3-4 month with the money you save from your server expenses

Keep the promoting and talk of commercial products out of this thread or next time I clean it up I'll give infractions... Thanks :)

Now, what needs to be done to get this working with vb 4.x? After all this program is free and does not belong to digitalpoint.

The first instruction itself BUMPs me :(
*Please do not install this product unless you have a strong technical background

Maybe someone wish to join / continue https://github.com/rcdesign/vb-sphinx_search . It works for 4.x, and used at my production forum. But i have no time to maintain it here and answer technical questions. Of cause, you can report bugs @ github.

That code is much better, than published by Andrian. It requires Sphinx 1.10+.
