Error - There was a problem with reindexing process (Catalog URL Rewrites) Print

  • 13

Magento has a tendancy to append a number to URL's (such as -1) in order to keep them unique. This can however break your URL's. While you could go through and fix these system URL's manually by creating custom URLs', it would be better to let Magento do this for you.

To do this, create a full backup of your Magento database (via Magento Admin > System > Tools > Backup).

Via phpMyAdmin, truncate the Magento table core_url_rewrite (so that it becomes totally empty). Immediately afterwards, go to System > Index Management and refresh the Catalog Url Rewrites. This will regenerate all System URLs.
