I've got 12 pending tasks, and can't get rid of the first stuck one.

  • CP->Utilities->Clear Caches doesn't seem to help.
  • In the database, in craft_queue there were five rows, the first one seeming to be the stuck one. I deleted all of those

Still the first task is stuck, and by now there are 14 tasks waiting.
I see that craft_templatecachequeries has over 11,000 rows. Would those be helpful to delete?

  • Can't you delete them in your Database interface (phpmyadmin /adminer...) ? If not delete them via Craft query May 5, 2018 at 13:41
  • @RobinSchambach Thanks, I did that, but things haven't changed. Question updated with additional info.

  • Could you please tell us the name of that task? They should not reappear when you delete them May 6, 2018 at 6:14
  • Thank you, @RobinSchambach, it was a dumb mistake. I deleted them from the wrong database (staging instead of development). Progressing now.

1 Answer 1


The answer was, to delete the first row of the queue table in the correct database.
Also, it helped to increase max_execution_time in /etc/php/7.1/apache2/php.ini
