How to Stop Magento Indexing?

Stopping the indexer process, it's an easy task. When Magento starts indexing it updates the status in the table index_process to working. If script stopped working due to error or server problem, the status remains the same working and won’t bring the process back to pending automatically.

One solution is login to your database via phpmyadmin.

Stop indexing

Run the below program. Don’t forget to fix the error before running query.

UPDATE `index_process` SET `status` = 'pending' WHERE `status` = 'working'
