Maybe your crontab is not setup right.

If you have SSH access could you go to the root folder of your Magento installation and execute the following command:

crontab -l

If it is empty install the Magento cron by running the following command:

php bin/magento cron:install

Now if you do a crontab -l again you will see a cronscript generated by Magento and the indexes should be updated every minute now !

  • cron is not setup but i am trying to run command php bin/magento indexer:reindex and that's also not work. Dec 3, 2019 at 4:52
  • Cron is necessary for Magento to work fine so I suggest you install the cron and if you do a php bin/magento indexer:reindex you get an error back ?
