Could anybody tell what are the requirements to successfully implement the sphinx search plug-in 0.4 in the hosting webserver.

Our wordpress domains all hosted by justhost.com. they are saying that the pay packages has to be changed for the wordpress sphinx plug-in 0.4 version to be installed in the webserver.

Did you know about the setting up procedures in the webserver where the website will benefit immensely?

Do you have any successful mantra to do it in the webserver?

With Regards
