I’ve been working on this problem for a very long time, but didn’t find any solution - even my special friend google couldn’t help.
- modx 2.7.3pl
- articles 1.7.13-pl
- tinymce 4.3.4-pl
hosted by strato.de:
- php 7.2
- php boost off
- mysql 5.6
It doesn’t matter if you’re creating a new article or editing an existing one, when trying to save it, it takes a very long time and mostly the changes are not saved. If the changes are really important and need to be released quickly, I edited them in the database.
Needless to say, this is very nerve-wracking.
What I’ve tried so far:
Updating everything, including modx and all extras.
Changing the charset of the database because it’s a german website and includes special chars, such as äöüßÄÖÜ. Of course I changed the settings in modx as well.
Creating a new articles container and an article which was successfully saved. I copied some of the old articles into the new container and everything worked fine. After this short glimpse of hope I edited the database and moved all old articles to the new container - and the problem returned.
I suppose there are some articles crashing or confusing the database as everything is working on a new container. But how can I find them? Needless to say I don’t want to copy every entry by hand. That would be the last desperate solution to get everything working again.
