WordPress Sphinx Search Plugin
Just had to give up trying to install on Windows (2 posts)

    Have tried for hours to get the plugin to work on windows; I've tried downloading & installing the windows binary - no success. Have tried putting windows bin folder contents in places - no joy. Have tried setting PATH to point to windows binaries - nothing lets me get past the step where the configuration wizard wants to extract the tar.gz file.

    I can't be the only person in the world who just wants a simple to install, but supposedly very promising search tool for wordpress, to run on a home PC to use at home.

    Have finally given up.

    So sorry, really wish I could report how easy it is to install AND USE this plugin in wordpress windows - but I can't.

    After 5 minutes with the plugin, my impression would be that it's probably intended for 'nix type operating systems only.

    Also this: "Ivinco provides development, implementation, and maintenance of LAMP stack based systems. We also specialize in deployment of Sphinx"

    The lack of that statement somewhere in bold print in the plugins FAQ or description seems somewhat disappointing. Perhaps I just overlooked it.
