I am unable to access my manage categories option in my Magento admin panel. When I click on the manage categories,it shows that the page does not exist.

It redirects to my old website URL of 404 not found page.

I copied the new adminhtml of Magento in it, but still, this error is showing up. When I open a product, here when I open manage products, then go to edit of product, after the product page is opened. On the product page, There is a categories option tab, here all categories are displaying.

I searched on google but didn't get any specific answer to this problem. Should I have to make any change in the database to view the manage categories page properly?

you should reindex the admin configuration this might help you

you can also get help from bellow link


check category.phtml

Use the catalog/category helper to get the proper URL from a category model

$_catalogCatgoryHelper = Mage::helper('catalog/category');

Then with that helper pass your category to the getCategoryUrl() function


please check link for detail.

I hope this will help you.
