I am very new to magento and am finding it ok to use (after overcomming a lot of issues it has) however i am now at one spot cdwhere i cant seem to resolved an issue i have with the Product EAV Indexer

/opt/plesk/php/7.0/bin/php bin/magento index:reindex catalog_product_attribute

SQLSTATE[42S22]: Column not found: 1054 Unknown column 'mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.source_id' in 'field list', query

was: INSERT INTO mage_catalog_product_index_eav (entity_id, attribute_id, store_id, value, source_id) SELECT mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.entity_id, mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.attribute_id, mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.store_id, mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.value, mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx.source_id FROM mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE entity_id = VALUES(entity_id), attribute_id = VALUES(attribute_id), store_id = VALUES(store_id), value = VALUES(value), source_id = VALUES(source_id)

Which if am correct states that i need the column source_id in catalog_product_index_eav_idx.source_id, However, When i add this column in and set the value to 0 for each row (i created a test database to see and that filled all the values with 0) i then get this error when running the same command

SQLSTATE[21S01]: Insert value list does not match column list: 1136 Column count doesn't match value count at row 1, query was: INSERT INTO mage_catalog_product_index_eav_idx SELECT DISTINCT pid.entity_id, pid.attribute_id, pid.store_id, IFNULL(pis.value, pid.value) AS value FROM (SELECT DISTINCT s.store_id, s.website_id, dd.attribute_id, COALESCE(ds.value, dd.value) AS value, cpe.entity_id FROM mage_store AS s LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity_int AS dd ON dd.store_id = 0 LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity_int AS ds ON ds.store_id = s.store_id AND ds.attribute_id = dd.attribute_id AND ds.entity_id = dd.entity_id LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity_int AS d2d ON d2d.store_id = 0 AND d2d.entity_id = dd.entity_id AND d2d.attribute_id = 94 LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity_int AS d2s ON d2s.store_id = s.store_id AND d2s.attribute_id = d2d.attribute_id AND d2s.entity_id = d2d.entity_id LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity AS cpe ON cpe.entity_id = dd.entity_id WHERE (s.store_id != 0) AND ((ds.value IS NOT NULL OR dd.value IS NOT NULL)) AND (COALESCE(d2s.value, d2d.value) = 1)) AS pid LEFT JOIN mage_catalog_product_entity_int AS pis ON pis.entity_id = pid.entity_id AND pis.attribute_id = pid.attribute_id AND pis.store_id = pid.store_id WHERE (pid.attribute_id IN('136', '139', '149', '161', '167', '169', '170', '171', '231')) AND (IFNULL(pis.value, pid.value) IS NOT NULL) AND (NOT(pis.value IS NULL AND pis.value_id IS NOT NULL))

I have been trying to solve this issue for quite a while now but am not having any luck.

I think I need to replace the core code which is used for the re-indexer but i cannot seem to find this.

Any chance someone could point me in the right direction on where Magento stores these files or how to resolve the issue using a different method?

I successfully solved this issue, by replacing the magento_indexer folder with a new version which I took from a new download of my Magento version. I then cleared the cache and did the Magento upgrade command. (i made sure I took a backup of the files I was replacing and the database before doing any of this).

The canceled all indexer process that was running, and re-run the indexer command and got the response I wanted.
