I am trying to reindex Magento 2.2.6 site with elasticsearch 5.1 running

when I try to run full reindex it takes a long time when it reaches

php bin/magento indexer:reindex catalogsearch_fulltext

then after about 1 hour or so it crashes the Putty CLI

Tried to reindex manually by running on its own but same issue is happening php bin/magento indexer:reindex catalogsearch_fulltext

Any ideas please and what settings should I be looking at on the server too

Did you already try to reindex all?

php bin/magento indexer:reindex

so without --catalogsearch_fulltext

If it is not working well, try to deactivate module and try again;

php bin/magento module:disable elasticsearch

Dont forget to run following commands after changes;

  1. bin/magento setup:upgrade
  2. bin/magento setup:di:compile
  3. bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
  4. bin/magento cache:clean
  5. bin/magento cache:flush
  6. bin/magento indexer:reindex

Also make sure that your cache is cleared. If not, clear it manually:

rm -rf


Hope it helps.

  • Thanks but already run all of these
