I'm using Magento CE ver. for one of my store, everything is working fine and as expected but the catalog/category. I'm not able to edit/delete categories from Admin Panel.

The Console details are as follow:

URL being hit each time I click on category name:


Get Params:

isAjax : true

q : index.php/admin/catalog_category/index/key/bdf7b2cc9b890b6cb7e687a31bc7c35c/id/3/

POST Params:

active_tab_id : category_info_tabs_group_4

form_key : FeUR7dFe2MutCtcB

This always bring a blank category form.

  • Maybe your catalog_url table is too big so it leads to a timeout or out of memory, Can you find anything related in the error logs?

I had the same issue. And that was because of Nginx configuration. You can find the following lines

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string; 
    try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;

in your site's configuration (/etc/nginx/sites-available/yoursite.com).

Change it to

location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ @handler; ## If missing pass the URI to Magento's front handler
location @handler { ## Magento uses a common front handler
    rewrite / /index.php;

Use the guidelines from http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/configuring_nginx_for_magento
