Sphinx Plugin Cron Job Errors
I followed the instructions included with this plugin and setup three cron job (main, delta, and stats.) They are running several times a day, but when I look at the log it's showing these errors for every attempt:
WARNING: failed to open pid_file '/var/log/searchd.pid'. WARNING: indices NOT rotated.
Any idea what I can do to avoid these errors? As it stands, they are preventing the indexer from running. I can get it to work manually, but I'd prefer to have the cron jobs automating this task.
The FAQ with the plugin mentions turning off searchd if these errors occur. I can do that when manually running the indecer, but how do you do that with a cron job?
