I'm a total newbie here, and I need some help. I'd just installed Magento 2.1.3, and I got this

message: "One or more indexers are invalid. Make sure your Magento cron job is running."

I've tried to follow the instructions found in the link below, but when I come to the part where it involves crontab and a text editor, the console says that there is no cron tab found for the user that I'm logged in as.

HOW do I get around this? Appreciate your help :) Thanks in advance! http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-cron.html#config-cli-cron-bkg


You need to create a new crontab entry with this command :

crontab -u magento-user -e

The Magento user can be your webserver such as www-data or apache2 or another user. The user should have the right to write on some Magento folders.
