I am migrating an existing Magento site to a new install.

I imported about 10000 products which all use 'stock config' settings. When i try to change the config setting 'manage stock' to NO, it loads for a while and says 'config saved', but the setting remains YES. All other settings do work. Only not the Manage stock setting.

If I change Manage stock to No and save it switches back to Yes

How can I disable the setting through database or back-end?

Run this query.

UPDATE core_config_data SET value=0 
WHERE `path` = 'cataloginventory/item_options/manage_stock';
