Hello all,

I\’m running 1.7 right now. My search function in my store sometimes fails and produces the following error:

SQLSTATE[HY000]: General error: 145 Table

In my admin panel, under index management, my catalog search index requires a reindex but when I try to reindex it, it says

\"Cannot initialize the indexer process\” in a red box.

Can anyone advise me on how to fix this? Many thanks in advance!

Hi

Try and clear your var/locks folder then reindex from the command line. All you need to do to reindex the Magento data manually via SSH is to log in to your account, go to your Magento installation directory and execute the following command:

php shell/indexer.php reindexall
