In the file /etc/uwsgi/emperor.ini, I have:

emperor = /etc/uwsgi/vassals

and systemctl start uwsgi@searxng works for me. Do the same and it will work. Don't have a custom systemd service, use the default one offered by uwsgi.

The systemd service tries to start /usr/bin/uwsgi --ini with this path /etc/uwsgi/searxng.ini but on its actually in /etc/uwsgi/vassals/searxng.ini.

Does the service need updatign or something?

A quick warning for users: the Oscar theme has now been removed, so you'll need to remove its definition from settings.yml. If you've got it selected as default in your browser, you need to remove it from there as well. I found that trying to change it on the settings page didn't help, so I had to find the cookie that specified "oscar" and delete that. Without removing these, you'll get a crash when you try to search.

@brainfucksec You should not have any issue. In the file /etc/uwsgi/emperor.ini, I have

emperor = /etc/uwsgi/vassals

and systemctl start uwsgi@searxng works for me.

python-hiredis has been added as an optdepend for the searxng-git package.

@Zepman Hello. python-redis is a community orphan package:

The version used was 4.0.1 when you submitted your request:

You can see two related PR: and ; and this was fully fixed with the 4.0.2 release. We are now with python-redis 4.3.4 on ArchLinux and you should no longer get this warning.

I contacted the previous packager of python-redis as he should add python-hiredis as an optdepend of python-redis. A bug has been assigned to a Trusted User as well and I contacted him to see where we are standing on this issue.

@Zepman thanks for the clarification.

When starting SearXNG without hiredis, uwsgi reports:

/usr/lib/python3.10/site-packages/redis/ UserWarning: redis-py works best with hiredis. Please consider installing

Please add package python-hiredis as an optional dependency.

For those not experienced with uwsgi, use the service uwsgi@emperor.service to daemonize SearXNG. There is no need to move INI files from their default location.

/etc/uwsgi/emperor.ini instantiates all configuration files in /etc/uwsgi/vassals, including searxng.ini. If you only installed this package and with that uwsgi as a dependency, searxng.ini will be the only file in the vassals directory.

The service uwsgi@searxng does not start if searxng.ini file is located in the directory /etc/uwsgi/vassals/ but starts correctly if it's located in the directory /etc/uwsgi.
