Sphinx startup script related to sphinx installtion

Continuing my last post Installing sphinx – https://veerasundaravel.wordpress.com/2008/06/20/installing-sphinx-in-linux-environment/

Here the startup script for the sphinx search engine.

#! /bin/sh
# /etc/init.d/sphinx: start the sphinx search daemon.

PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin

pidfile=/var/sphinx/run/searchd.pid
binpath=/var/sphinx/bin/searchd

SPHINX=”–config /var/sphinx/etc/sphinx.conf”

NAME=searchd
DESC=”sphinx search daemon”

test -f $binpath || exit 0

test ! -r /etc/default/sphinx || . /etc/default/sphinx

running()
{
# No pidfile, probably no daemon present
#
if [ ! -f $pidfile ]
then
return 1
fi

pid=`cat $pidfile`

# No pid, probably no daemon present
#
if [ -z “$pid” ]
then
return 1
fi

if [ ! -d /proc/$pid ]
then
return 1
fi

cmd=`cat /proc/$pid/cmdline | tr “00” “\n”|head -n 1`

# No syslogd?
#
if [ “$cmd” != “$binpath” ]
then
return 1
fi

return 0
}

case “$1” in

echo -n “Starting sphinx search daemon: searchd”
