I believe a PID file is required for the sphinx indexer to rotate indexes (if you're using --rotate). If type=simple is used, PIDFile cannot be used and indexer will always fail to rotate indexes because it can't find the pid file.

With the current service file, Sphinx doesn't start for me. Following @Artefact2's advice seems to fix it.

2.2.4 is out

It would probably better to pass --console to searchd, so that it doesn't fork. This way you can use Type=simple and let systemd handle the forking. This makes it easier to track the status of the service (no need for a pid file, so no need to fiddle with /run and tmpfiles.d) and also lets journalctl handle the logging.

Sorry, groupadd and useradd don't require an id (and this PKGBUILD wouldn't need to reference it), so you can just exclude the number in the groupadd and useradd commands and not have to worry about it; ie:

groupadd sphinx
useradd -g sphinx -d /usr/share/sphinx/ -s /bin/false sphinx

The process will also need to write to logs and rotate data files, so you'll need to chown the appropriate directories in the install script as well (like the elasticsearch package):

chown -R sphinx:sphinx /var/lib/sphinx/
