Installed Magento 2.1.7 Community Edition, created cron jobs, but I still get Reindex Required on Indexed rule/product association. What have I done wrong?

Note: When I do php bin/magento indexer:reindex I get the responses:

Error messages for Magento 2 reindex

Probably your MySQL service not started. If you are using xampp, then need to start MySQL service before run Indexer Command.

  • No. If I wasn't running MySQL, the site wouldn't work at all. Jul 17, 2017 at 10:13
  • Ok, Then It's missing, the PDO mysql connector reports SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] No such file or directory If you are continually getting this error thrown and have no access to Magento aside from the Exception Error page, then mysql has crashed completely and you need your hosting provider to find out why and restart mysql.
