Hi guys so I am having an issue with the "generating pending image transforms" being stuck.

I've seen the solution listed here https://craftcms.com/support/stuck-tasks telling me to go to the craft_tasks table and fix the error. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get to this table. Where is it? No one seems to explain this.


The easiest way is to use a GUI MySQL client to connect to the Craft database and edit the table directly. Popular ones include Navicat and Sequel Pro, but there is a good list here of options for both OSX and Windows.

Once you connect to the database, you can edit the data in the craft_tasks table and change the value of status from running to pending to re-trigger it.

  • Thanks Heaps Brad, I was able to just go into phpMyAdmin and fix the stuck tasks. Once I knew how to get there all the previous explanations made sense. – JeffTalbot Jan 20 '16 at 1:50

If you want an even more user friendly way of doing it, install the Task Manager plugin by Bob Olde Hampsink, and you can do it from the Craft control panel.

  • Thanks to Brads comment I was able to find the way in through phpMyAdmin. But I will definitely install it and give it a go. – JeffTalbot Jan 20 '16 at 1:37
