The Stratus Sphinx service is designed for the Mirasvit Magento 2 search module but should work for other modules. Configure by doing the following:
- In your Magento 2 Sphinx configuration, set the engine to External Engine, the path to /usr/bin/searchd on port 9312, set the host/ip to 0.0.0.0 and then save the configuration. This will generate a sphinx.conf in var/sphinx in your document root.
- Open your Stratus panel
- Click the Sphinx section to expand it then click Info
- Click Enable to start the service ( this will cause 1-2 minutes of downtime), it should auto-detect the generated sphinx.conf
- Reindex your site to populate the indexes
This textbox is for customization or if the sphinx.conf path differs from var/sphinx for your store.
