Error Message: One or more indexers are invalid. Make sure your Magento cron job is running.

Hi all!

I'm a total newbie to Magento!

 

I'm getting the above error message, and have done enough research to know that the solution is confusing me greatly. I wondered if someone could give me a merchants answer to this problem?

 

We are wanting to switch to Magento, and like it so far. But I'm starting to worry it's a bit too complicated for us.

 

We are using a Linux hosting package through GoDaddy which included the one click install option. GoDaddy uses cPanel! I've read that it involved running a cron job, and other command prompts but I have no idea where to start or where to put anything.

 

A dummies step by step guide for where I need to go and what I need to put in would be amazing!

 

I'm willing to learn, and don't want to give up on Magento just yet!

 

Much appreciated, Natalie.

Hi Natalie, 

 

Please follow this link http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.1/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-index.html to get an understanding of Magento indexes work. 

 

FYI - if you are looking for just a quick solution then you need to run the following in your server shell. 

php bin/magento indexer:reindex
