I need to install Sphinx onto a shared host. Does anyone have any experience of this ? I am told by Heart internet that I will need a dedicated server, but I am sure this can't be the case ? Has anyone any advice on this, or know of a host where Sphinx comes as standard ?

You may install it within your home directory from source using these commands,

$ wget http://sphinxsearch.com/files/sphinx-0.9.9.tar.gz
$ tar -xf sphinx-0.9.9.tar.gz 
$ cd sphinx-0.9.9
$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME
$ make
$ make install

Like any other application you have to monitor its resources, but other than that there are no restrictions on using it.

how do I run the searchd in background, seems it starts and then stops as I can not see it using ps.

Are you just using ps?

ps without any arguments just displays the processes startd in the current shell.

You should check if sphinx is running or not using the output of:

ps -F -u $USER
