I'm running the latest debian as OS.
I installed Sphinx using
apt-get install sphinxsearch
However, I need to communicate with sphinx trough PHP. In order to do so I downloaded the latest Sphinx version to obtain the phpapi.
When I try to perform a query I get an error about versions.
Query failed: searchd error: client version is higher than daemon version (client is v.1.25, daemon is v.1.22)
Apperently apt-get doesn't install the latest version. Doing an OS update and upgrade does not solve this either.
So I assume I have to update my sphinx installation from the downloaded source. Can I simply compile and install the source without losing data?
Or do you guys have another suggestion?
