I am trying to run Magento indexer with:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_url
But I am getting:
Catalog URL Rewrites index was rebuilt successfully in 00:00:00
Which first made no sense to me, but when I checked the admin backend, I found out that Catalog URL Rewrites is in state WAIT(IN QUEUE) and when I force processing the queue from the backend I get the 500 error. This means that running the indexer from command line is just putting the indexing process in queue, and is not actually doing the real indexing!
My question: is there any way to configure the indexing behaviour to not but processes into the queue and run then directly instead?
