If I am in admin, looking at list of products, and I select more than 6 product and then apply the action to DELETE those products, I am almost 100% of the time getting a blank screen (it is calling up a function labeled massdelete which I can see in the URL box of the browser).
If about a minute later I re-log in to my admin, I see a message that the 10 items were deleted, and all is well. But it’s still a troubling route to have to go through. That’s problem #1.
Problem #2 is the same as problem #1 except… the last time this happened, when I logged back in, about 6 hours worth of product entry were gone—my entire database was wiped clean by Magento—I have no products listed.
Stupid me, the last time I backed up was 12 hours ago—and I’ve successfully restored my database, but I did lose 12 hours worth of data entry.
Why are these things happening?! I don’t want to find myself obsessively backing up the database every fifteen minutes.
And I don’t want to “live with” the screen going blank and having to re-log-in if I choose to delete more than 6 products at once.
