I am totally new to searx, and how it works.
The link is my question about searx on arcolinux forum.
thanks in advance.
Edit : i copy past the post from the forum.
Yesterday i heard from searx, and decided to install searx and see how it works.
I got this far, with a warning.
This is the source of the yml.
I enabled more network interfaces. I think that it takes over other engines. To prevent from tracking. (?)
Is the service running in this state?
Use one of the installation methods described here https://asciimoo.github.io/searx/dev/install/installation.html .. most prefer the docker way.
With you started the application for development purpose, listening only for local requests on 127.0.0.1 and stops when you close the terminal. A "service" is running even if you are logged out. Don't take me wrong, if it is hard for you to see the difference (e.g. the "127.0.0.1"), it will much harder for you to set up a real service .. that's why most prefer the docker way from the installation instruction / personally never used this way. I prefer a manual setup (described here searx@handsOn / but this won't help you!).
Anyway feel welcome here .. may there is a much more easier solution for you:
Normally you will install your own searx instance, you will have a 24/7 server it runs on. So if you just want using searx, use one listed here https://github.com/asciimoo/searx/wiki/Searx-instances .. or take https://searx.me/ ... or use my instance https://darmarit.cloud/searx/
Using other instance is the concept of searx, not every user really need to setup its own instance. BTW: single used instance does not obscure and therefore does not stop tracking. You need many user on your searx node to obscure .. and that's why users are also welcome to our instances (!)
Hope that's helps to clarify a bit / if this answered your Question, please do not forgett to close this issue / thanks!
