    Hello Fakiex,

    Thanks for contacting us!

    It looks like you have some issues with compilation of sphinx upon your server. It is hard to guess what exact reason can cause this without log files but do you have gcc compiler installed on vps already? If you don’t, then you would need to install it first to make any kind of compiling. Also you can visit SphinxSearch Engine website and download sphinx.2.1.x RPM for your Linux distribution. This won’t require any compilation and on the 2nd wizard’s stage you will have to choose another options: “Use system binaries”.

    Best regards,
