Python get_askbot_sphinx_config > /etc/sphinxsearch/sphinx.conf Unknown command: 'get_askbot_sphinx_config' Type ' help' for usage.

Getting above error when trying to configure sphinx.

==== UPDATE ====

Sphinx seems to be working fine, but now getting error

File "/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/djangosphinx/", line 53$ raise SearchError, client.GetLastError()

I understand, the latest djangosphinx package is not compatible with it. Not sure where I mistaken.

Got the answer.

Please update your documentation, the command name is get_askbot_sphinx_search_config.

The documentation says, python get_askbot_sphinx_config > sphinx.conf


Wonderful system, really impressed.

=================== Update =====================

I found, the system is only compatible with Sphnix 0.9.8 and with x0113 version API. I'm not sure if it is my limited knowledge that didn't make it working with any other version or not. But certainly confirm that it is working fine with Sphnix 0.9.8.

Worked great with Wordpress Sphnix + AskBot Sphnix module and now able to show aggregated result after a bit tricks. Amazing guys, keep it up, it has long way to go.

You have beat OSQA and Shapado by far... ;)
