    1. Make sure the var/locks folder is writable.  Test out full permissions (chmod 777).
    2. Delete all of the .locks files from the var/locks folder.

Re: Cannot initialize the indexer process?

There are some reasons which caused this error:

  • Low value for Memory limit and maximum execution time in Php.ini file
  • No writing Permission for folder /var
  • Too many products or store views, the re-indexing process can’t be done via Magento backend
  • Corruption of tables in database
