How to use this extension

  1. What does this extension provides?

    Normally, you can update the TYPO3-refindex for ALL tables with this shell-command: [path-to-your-php-installation] [path-to-typo3-installation]/htdocs/typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel_refindex -e e.g.: /opt/php5/bin/php /srv/www/typo3/htdocs/typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh lowlevel_refindex -e

    But maybe, you only want to update the TYPO3-refindex for SPECIFIED tables (because you don't have the need to update the index for ALL tables) or you want to update the tables via scheduler-task. If any of these reasons is your intention, then this extension is right for you!

  2. How to configure this extension?

    • create BE-user named '_cli_scheduler' (the BE-user doesn't must have any access rights)
    • Go to the BE-module 'Scheduler'
    • Add a new scheduler-task:
      • Choose the Class 'Update Refindex of TYPO3 [update_refindex]'
      • Select the tables, you want to update
      • select other scheduler-task-staff (e.g. Start- and Stop-time, type and frequency)
    • call the scheduler recurring via a cronjob The cronjob must execute this shell-command: [path-to-your-php-installation] [path-to-typo3-installation]/htdocs/typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh scheduler e.g.: /opt/php5/bin/php /srv/www/typo3/htdocs/typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh scheduler
