Having an issue with assets not reindexing from the Update Asset Indexes option. If I add new folders to the file system they do not appear after I run the Update Asset Indexes, if I upload them manually in the backend then they do appear as normal.

How would I diagnose this? Running Apache as my logged in user so it's does not seem to be a group / permissions related issue.

  • Do you get any JS errors in your browser's console when you run Update Asset Indexes? – Brad Bell Aug 11 '14 at 6:03
  • Yup: POST smt.craft.dev/index.php/admin/actions/tools/performAction 500 (Internal Server Error) jquery-2.1.0.min.js?d=1406143654:4 l.cors.a.crossDomain.send jquery-2.1.0.min.js ... – Steve Adams Aug 11 '14 at 6:05
  • On Craft Client 2.1.2566 – Steve Adams Aug 11 '14 at 6:06
  • Check your craft/storage/runtime/logs files to see what the underlying error is for the 500 Internal Server Error. – Brad Bell Aug 11 '14 at 6:06
  • Cool... probably worth adding that as the official answer in case someone else runs into it. – Brad Bell Aug 11 '14 at 6:18

If the Update Asset Indexes fails on a MAMP install, double check to make sure ALL assets source paths are correct and exist on the file system.

I had defined a asset source to a folder which I had planned on using but had not yet created on the file system, and this caused the Update Asset Indexes to fail w/o any warning messages, save for a JS error in the console.
