Thinking Sphinx Problem


I am using *Thinking Sphinx version 2.0.11 in one of my project. To
an index I ran
**rake thinking_sphinx:index *and I got the following

Generating Configuration to /home/saidev/Ubuntu
rake aborted!
At least one field is necessary for an index

Tasks: TOP => thinking_sphinx:index
(See full trace by running task with --trace)*

This is the first time I am using Sphinx on Rails. Any help?

It’s hard to tell. It looks like you don’t have anything defined in

If you have

define_index do
indexes name

in your model and it doesn’t work
try to tests

indexes “‘’”, :as => :empty

and try then.

Did you look on ?
I found everything there. They have good documentation

We got it! Thanks. We Installed Sphinx from Ubuntu repository thatn from
downloading it from the Sphinx page.
