    Hi there,

    As best as I can tell, this is due to memory limits on your MySQL database. I would recommend increasing the sort_buffer_size setting there and see if that helps resolve the problem.

    I’ve discussed this issue with others using Thinking Sphinx here:

    Please do let me know if that doesn’t fix the issue!

    Kind regards,

    — Pat
