Hi Vivek,

Here is my sphinx.yml, but this is working for me before…

development: &dev
html_strip: 1
enable_star: 1
html_remove_elements: script
mem_limit: 64M
morphology: stem_en

test:
<<: *dev

staging:
bin_path: /usr/local/bin/

pid_file: /etc/service/searchd/supervise/pid

<<: *dev

production:
bin_path: /usr/local/bin/
pid_file: /etc/service/searchd/supervise/pid
<<: *dev

Are you running this on production or in development. Can you find the
PID
file which is listed in the yml file ?
/etc/service/searchd/supervise/pid

Running this in Development. I can’t able to find the PID.

So “suddenly” you’re getting a connection failure?

Are you sure that searchd is still running? Is it logging any errors?
Can you connect to it via any other client?

Uh, well. I wouldn’t say “fixed” if you don’t know why your searchd
instance became unresponsive and you haven’t taken appropriate
steps to insure that it doesn’t happen again :slight_smile:

But good luck!
