What it does

This plugin calls the Magento script indexer.php (available since magento 1.4.x) via php cli (ie: launches a new php instance in command line) to rebuild magento indexes.

This magento script performs Full Reindexing , so it may take very long on big catalogs.


Usage

From version 1.0.5, included in magmi 0.7.10 (recommended) the parameters are the following

  • php cli command : what is the command to launch php cli (defaults to php)
  • a list of indexes to rebuild with checkboxes

Note

Latest extra plugin package comes with On the fly indexer v1.0.2c plugin that can perform differential indexing on URL Rewrites index & Catalog category product.

When using on the fly indexer plugin , the calalog_url & catalog_category_product do not need to be selected for reindexing.

Magento version compatibility

If magento version is 1.3 , reindexer will fail to run since no indexer.php script is available.

Troubleshooting

If the reindex takes subsecond time, then the cli command has failed. in that case, use magento backend or a command line to perform the reindexing manually.
