I am trying to re-index product prices after update in my product price but its not working showing me old price in product list page.I am using this code

$process = Mage::getModel('index/indexer')->getProcessByCode('catalog_product_price');

i also tried this one

$reindex = Mage::getModel('index/process')->load(2);
$reindex ->reindexAll();

But its not working. I have tried from by this command

php indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_price

Its working fine showing me updated prices.

  • What does $reindex contain? Are you sure it is loaded? Dec 7, 2016 at 14:43
  • yeah 2 is the id of this process catalog_product_price

  • I know, but I asked it you are sure $reindex is a loaded object or not. Try echoing echo $reindex->getStatus() and see it if works. Dec 7, 2016 at 15:01
  • string(7) "pending" getting this

Create external file test.php in magento root. Please add below code in it.

include 'app/Mage.php';

// clear cache

// reindex prices
1 = Product Attributes
2 = Product Attributes
3 = Catalog URL Rewrites
4 = Product Flat Data
5 = Category Flat Data
6 = Category Products
7 = Catalog Search Index
8 = Tag Aggregation Data
9 = Stock Status

// Recreate a single index programmatically
Mage::getModel('index/process')->load(Mage_Catalog_Helper_Product_Flat::CATALOG_FLAT_PROCESS_CODE, 'indexer_code')->reindexEverything();

The right function to call is:


Just add it in an observer.


You could build a custom script to run * * * * * /usr/bin/php /path/to/indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_price as a crontab (if you're using Linux).

It's not a magento solution, but it would work if it's something that's mission critical. Where you could have it run on a regular interval? Not the best solution, but it might be what you're looking for.

  • The OP wants to do it programmatically, not using the command line. Dec 8, 2016 at 8:00
