Magento: Reindex via SSH

The fastest way to reindex Magento data is manually via SSH. To reindex the Magento data manually, you need to have an SSH access to your web hosting account. All you need to do to reindex your Magento data manually is to log in your hosting account via SSH, go to your Magento installation directory (e.g. /var/www/html) and execute the following command:

php shell/indexer.php reindexall

To reindex individual items execute the below commands:

Category Flat Data:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_category_flat

Product Flat Data:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_flat

Stock Status:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex cataloginventory_stock

Catalog product price:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_product_price

Category URL Rewrites:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_url_category

Product URL Rewrites:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_url_product

URL Redirects:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex url_redirect

Catalog Category/Product Index:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalog_category_product

Catalog Search Index:
php shell/indexer.php --reindex catalogsearch_fulltext

Magento – Force Display Full Breadcrumb Path

The best practice is to override this function and create a new module. For the time being we can use the easier method :-)

Copy core file to local: app\code\local\Mage\Catalog\Block\Breadcrumbs.php
On protected function _prepareLayout() add below code just before $title = array();

$current_category   = Mage::registry('current_category');
$current_product    = Mage::registry('current_product');
if(!$current_category && $current_product){
    $categories = $current_product->getCategoryCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('name')->setPageSize(1);
    foreach($categories as $category) {
        Mage::register('current_category', $category);

After this addition of code, you will always get full magento breadcrumb. Full code looks like below:

protected function _prepareLayout()
    if ($breadcrumbsBlock = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('breadcrumbs')) {
        $breadcrumbsBlock->addCrumb('home', array(
            'title'=>Mage::helper('catalog')->__('Go to Home Page'),

        // Fix for Breadcrumbs start here
        $current_category   = Mage::registry('current_category');
        $current_product    = Mage::registry('current_product');
        if(!$current_category && $current_product){
            $categories = $current_product->getCategoryCollection()->addAttributeToSelect('name')->setPageSize(1);
            foreach($categories as $category) {
                Mage::register('current_category', $category);
        // Fix for Breadcrumbs ends here

        $title = array();
        $path  = Mage::helper('catalog')->getBreadcrumbPath();

        foreach ($path as $name => $breadcrumb) {
            $breadcrumbsBlock->addCrumb($name, $breadcrumb);
            $title[] = $breadcrumb['label'];

        if ($headBlock = $this->getLayout()->getBlock('head')) {
            $headBlock->setTitle(join($this->getTitleSeparator(), array_reverse($title)));
    return parent::_prepareLayout();
