With our Magento version we are having an issue where indexing reverts back to manual as can be seen here enter image description here

We set the mode to 'Update on Save' and do indexing via command line and it all shows green, but after sometime it some indexes reverts back to 'Manual'. Not sure what the issue could be?

Once do re indexing pro-grammatically this way:

$indexCollection = Mage::getModel('index/process')->getCollection();
foreach ($indexCollection as $index) {

Then see if it fixed.

  • Excellent! it fixed a long time issue. May I know what was wrong while I tried before to reindex -all via shell but it was keep reverting back?
