I installed the rather nifty looking AOE Scheduler extension. It's all working good and I can see a task called;


but from what I can gather this only reindexes the Index Product Prices.

My question is this: How can I add a task to AOE that reindexes the ENTIRE Index? I can see in my index at the moment that Product Attributes needs reindexing.

You can't add tasks via the scheduler. It only represents tasks set in the <crontab> tag in other modules config.xml files.

To reindex use the servers crontab and add a task like

15 9 * * * php /path/to/website/shell/indexer.php reindexall

This task will run the Indexer on all indexes every day at a quarter pas nine

  • Sander: Thank you for that. Is running it once a day suitable for a busy store. We add products and make category changes & attributes every day, so how often is best to run it, do you think?

  • Hm if you want to run it once, set the indexes to manual in the backend in case you didn't do that already and then just run it at 17:00. Should be a bit more quiet around that time due to people leaving for home and it will process the data you have changed that day Apr 16, 2015 at 9:50
