I was logged into my Magento admin section, when all of a sudden everything stopped working. I would click on a link, and the browser would try to load the page, but nothing would happen. Now, when I type in the admin path, nothing shows up at all. The animated ‘loading’ icon is active, but nothing is happening. The front end of the website works fine, only the admin won’t load. Please help!!
I think there is a bug, if you enter an invalid attribute_set and then attempt to import, it throws an error and continues on. It even works if later rows import fine but then it freezes up something in mysql that forces a reboot to get back into admin; at least that is my experience (happened 3 x)
Thanks for the info! I think that’s exactly what I did as well… added an attribute then tried importing some products. The import worked fine, but then the admin stopped working (the frontend worked fine).
Fortunately, the problem resolved itself after about an hour.
