Index Search Engine Automated Job never stops running

Hi All,

In the Settings under Automated Jobs, the “Index Search Engine - All” and “Index Search Engine - Updates” are both running perpetually. I haven’t been able to come up with a solution on this - Anyone else had to deal with this?

Hi there,

So a couple things - one might be checking the server and Concrete logs to see if it’s erroring out for some reason (like out of memory or something like that). Your hosting provider support could probably provide some insight there as well.

And then next thing I would recommend would be getting Concrete up to either the latest version 8 (8.5.7) or better still version 9.0.1 (you would want to back up and probably do this on a stage install first if possible).

Depending on what version you update to, you probably want to get on a higher version of PHP - 7.2 and 7.3 are both EOL.

Hope that helps!
