SphinxSearch install error: "Cannot find data path location" in sphinx.conf
I'm trying to install the SphinxSearch plugin (version 20140114) on Vanilla 2.1.3, and I've already installed Sphinx 2.2.4 on my VPS.
I'm getting stuck in the plugin's install wizard at Step 2, when it asks to paste "full text of existing contents of sphinx.conf". It throws an error: Cannot find data path location defined inside of configuration text. Here's a screenshot.
For the "existing contents of sphinx.conf", I'm using /etc/sphinx/sphinx.conf. Here are the contents of that file.
Am I supposed to manually configure this sphinx.conf file before running the plugin installer? If so, does anyone have any example configurations?
I think I'm probably missing something really obvious, but I followed @mcu_hq's instructions as closely as I could, and I'm still getting stuck. Any ideas?
Many thanks to @mcu_hq for this awesome plugin... can't wait to get it running!
