Craft Web Design + Development
Brendan McKeown

Hey there. I’m a front-end developer and web designer. I'm all about creating websites and web apps that look and perform flawlessly on any device using HTML, CSS, and Javascript. I enjoy utilizing libraries, frameworks and preprocessors that improve efficiency and reduce confusion.

Check out my resume.

Force Reindex of Processes

Sometimes the Magento indexes can get stuck in a "processing" state. If you have access to a shell, you can force a reindex. This will also show you success/failure messages for each index as it is rebuilt.

# cd into site root and do:
php shell/indexer.php reindexall

If that doesn’t work, try deleting all the lock files in /var/locks and setting the permissions of the folder to 777.
