I'm trying to see the best match for my search function, which is based on PHP and Mysql.
I am currently trying SphinxSearch, which looks quite promising, and i have to include some code in my application to make it work - which i still am.
Recently i came across a managed server, and they seem to be implementing ElasticSearch out out of the box! .. Just select the checkbox, and ElasticSearch is on!
So, it sounded amazing, and i have an account with them. My question is - don't i have to include anything on my code???
I mean i can see ElasticSearch banging on my RAM pretty bad, and it's acceptable as long as it does the job. My web app is quite small right now, and user-wise im not sure if the search is getting better results.
Any thoughts people, does elasticsearch not need any changes in my website code?
