I'm developing a magento store on a server which i don't have access to SSH right now. Can we possibly reindex without SSH?
Yes you can using cron. You can also set your indexing mode for index on schedule to avoid delays every time you save a product, for example.
- Set up cron
- In the Admin, go to System > Tools > Index Management to set the indexing mode
You can Re-Index using Admin Panel. Here Re-Index can be done in two modes.
- Update on Save
- Update on Schedule
To do so-
Log in to the Magento Admin.
Go to System and under Tools, click Index Management.
Select the checkbox next to each type of indexer to change.
Select the indexing mode from the Actions dropdown.
