Rebuilding the UMBRACO Undex’s

There is an off chance that your index files in UMBRACO ( umbraco.config ) may become corrupt. If this is the case there is a nice built-in utilitie that can be used to rebuild all the index’s and fix the issues that your site is experiencing.

add the following to your website’s root address “Umbraco/dialogs/republish.aspx?xml=true”

e.g. if the site was http://www.someurl.com you would enter http://www.someurl.com/Umbraco/dialogs/republish.aspx?xml=true

Follow the prompts.

I found myself having to use this to fix a problem where the Dynamic menus were adding nodes that didn’t exist and breaking links on nodes that did.

Quick and easy fix

Well done umbraco team.
