Totally unable to make any edits

So I have been given the task of fixing a website that was made about a decade ago and hasn't been updated or changed in any way since.


It is running on magento 1.8 and the main issue is that I cannot make any changes to anything, whenever I try to apply the changes it thinks about it for a few minutes then gives me a timed out message and the changes haven't been saved.


I don't need a perfect fix as we will likely be building an entire new site sometime soon but in the short term I need to set products as out of stock or disable/delete them.
