Quick Fix for "Index process is working now. Please try run this process later"

Trying to re-index the data in one of our magento site and I got this annoying error repeatedly. I keep on clicking the re-index button as well as clearing the site cache yet there's no sight of success. I tried searching for an answer to my friend "GOOGLE" and I found this easy fix. Generally, the error was cause by magento lock files located on the var/locks folder which not allowing you to do indexing.

Try the following solutions to solve the problem:

1. Empty the /var/locks/ folder on your magento installation directory and set 777 permission to that folder.
2. If the above doesn't work, try to run the script /shell/indexer.php

That’s it. Easy and working. :)

worked like charm for me
(used chmod 775 rather than 777)

Thanks for sharing!
