When I select some products inside the product catalog and I try to update them, I get the following error:

An error occurred while updating the product(s) status.

Magento ver.

How can I solve that and where can I check the problem?


Needed to increase the size of innodb_log_file_size.

If you have an access to code - you can debug this issue next way:

  1. open file file app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/Catalog/ProductController.php
  2. change line

                ->addException($e, $this->__('An error occurred while updating the product(s) status.'));


                ->addException($e, $this->__('An error occurred while updating the product(s) status.') . ' ' . $e->getMessage());
  3. then try to change your products in admin again. You should see more clear error message after it.

Just as an idea - why it can occur - Maybe your products have different Attribute sets and some of Sets doesn't contain an attribute which you are trying to change.

Or it can be just some mysql issue. Database connection or sql query error.
