I am running magento 1.9 CE. when I am trying to index it shows this error - Catalog URL Rewrites Index process is working now. Please try run this process later.
Clear all files inside of var/locks/ directory
Apply 777 permission to var/locks/
Recreate index executing shell commands:
php magentodirectory/shell/indexer.php -reindex catalog_url
For this you need to empty the table call core_url_rewrites from you database and again do this process.
But first please take backup of this table and then empty it.
Required, but never shown
