WordPress timing out on you when you edit a menu…

cPanel, WordPress

if you edit a menu and get a 500 or 404 and also see something like max_input_vars limit too low.

edit your php.ini and adjust or add

max_input_vars = 5000

then restart Apache.

Oh yeah this is due to the limit on menu items php imposes on wp.

Other factors round this issue were a messy htaccess file and also permalinks, so check that too.
