I am trying to install Sphinx Search for a site on my VPS. Sphinx version 2.1.9-release: http://sphinxsearch.com/downloads/release/
There are some basic instructions here: http://sphinxsearch.com/docs/2.1.9/compiling-source-linux.html
Where do I install this? When I log into shell under a username, I start off in directory: /home/[username] . Do I install it right there? Or do I move up …/…/ to the root “/” directory and install it?
That sphinx guide says something about installing it to: /usr/local/sphinx ?
