Rebuilding Indexes in Sitecore 7

March 15, 2014

Sitecore 7 makes it very easy to rebuild your lucene index! Rather than using a module or programmatically rebuilding your indexes, you can now do it through the control panel. Here are the steps:

Go into the Start Menu and open the control panel.

Start Menu Control Panel

Once you have the control panel open, click on the Indexing icon. That will bring you to a wizard with two options. Select the option for rebuilding the indexes.

Control Panel Indexing

This will pop open the wizard with your core, master, and web indexes. You can select which indexes to rebuild by checking the box next to the respective name and then click Rebuild to rebuild them.

Rebuild Wizard

Once the wizard finishes, your indexes will be rebuild and you are all set!
