I am getting the error: An unknown error occurred for each file in a folder when I try Update Asset Indexes. The folder is a local folder that is outside of webroot. The files just contain json data. I have looked through Craft log files and apache log files and cannot find anything. Any ideas?

I have tried the following from other questions with the same error message and none of these made an difference.

Deleted entire craft/storage/runtime/ folder

An unknown error occurred - no log entry

Made sure no record in table assetindex has null for dateModified column

"An unknown error occurred" in assets screen

Reset folder ownership

permissions userphotos "an unknown error occurred"

  • Can you use the browser's developer console to check what's in the response body for Ajax requests running during the indexing? – Andris Sevcenko May 6 at 9:01
  • I have not built any code to load the content of the files yet since I can't add them through the reindex – Trevor Orr May 6 at 13:36
  • Symlink the folder they are in from your public web root? – Brad Bell May 6 at 16:47
  • I mean when you run the indexing process, your Craft install fires a bunch of Ajax requests to the server to try to index the files. Can you check the response body of those requests? If all seems normal, maybe enable devMode and try again. – Andris Sevcenko May 6 at 17:09
  • it appears to be some kind of ownership / permission issue even though I reset ownership / permission on the entire folder structure. I set it up on my work computer and it works perfectly. Maybe I just need to clone the repo again in a new folder and see if that works. – Trevor Orr May 7 at 2:51

Try to call the json file in the browser. There are chance of showing unknown error when the path of the json file is missing in Asset Index.

  • The files are outside of the webroot so I can't access them from the browser – Trevor Orr May 5 at 1:20
