I'm currently unable to re-index:

$ heroku rake fs:index --app mbs-thread-preview Starting Index Request rake aborted! Index Request failed to start. Something's not right!

We're using

  • bamboo-mri-1.9.2
  • flying-sphinx (0.6.1)
  • thinking-sphinx (2.0.10)

Any ideas?

    Hi Mike

    Sorry about that, was upgrading servers, and forgot that flying-sphinx expects a user 'sphinx' to exist, but new setup has that user called 'deploy'. Thankfully, it's trivial (once I found out how) to alias one user as another. Everything's working again now :)

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
