Hello, I am getting an error when I try to search -
ThinkingSphinx::ConnectionError (Error connecting to Sphinx via the MySQL protocol. Error connecting to Sphinx via the MySQL protocol. Lost connection to MySQL server at 'reading authorization packet'
At the same time, restarting the sphinx with the ts:stop ts:start command does not help. If you reboot the dyno, then the search works for a while. Can you suggest what is the problem?
App - stark-cloud-2613-pr-90 with Wooden Sphinx

    Hi Sergey,

    I’m not quite sure what the cause is, but I’ve restarted the Sphinx proxy to see if that helps. I can connect to the daemon without any issues, I would expect your app now can as well. If you find the problem returns, though, please do let me know.

    Kind regards,

    Pat Allan
