How do I install Sphinx search in an Elasticbeanstalk container so that it is automatically installed anytime the instance restarts?. I tried this container command in my .config of the .ebextensions folder but it did not work.

    command: curl -L -o sphinx-2.2.6-1.rhel7.x86_64.rpm  http://sphinxsearch.com/files/sphinx-2.2.6-1.rhel7.x86_64.rpm && sudo yum -y install ./sphinx-2.2.6-1.rhel7.x86_64.rpm && sudo chkconfig searchd on
  • define 'didnt work'. Thats not very specific. Do you get a specific error? A partly working install what? Can you check logs? – barryhunter Aug 1 '16 at 8:48
  • I finally got it to work. I don't know exactly what happened, but when i created another instance, it worked fine. i just had to add ignoreErrors: true to it. – Bubunyo Nyavor Aug 1 '16 at 9:38
