How to do Magento Reindexing from command prompt

There are two ways to reindex data in magento

i) Reindexing from admin section

ii) Reindexing through command line

With this article we will analyzing reindexing through command line only. Because reindexing through command line is more safe way to diagnose and perform.

Just need to go to “shell” folder on Root directory. By writing below command

cd ---ROOTPATH--/shell

Now you can see the list of indexing avaialable through below command

php indexer.php --info

You can check the status of reindexing by below command

php -f indexer.php –status

You can do indexing one by one like below

php indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_attribute

This will reindex catalog product attribute

php indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_price

This will reindex catalog product price

If you want to do all indexing at one go just type

php indexer.php --reindex all

If you still not able to do that. You can do it by creating one PHP script as well

require_once 'app/Mage.php';
$app = Mage::app('admin');
for ($index = 1; $index <= 8; $index++) {
$process = Mage::getModel('index/process')->load($index);
The following two tabs change content below.
