Global configuration does not save

Post by uzbaby » Tue Nov 01, 2022 7:01 am

Hello dear developers,
I cannot make any settings in my Global configuration tabs.
It always shows:
The form cannot be submitted as it's missing required data.
Please correct the marked fields and try again.
Here is my tabs setting screens in the attachment
Can you please say what's wrong there?

What version of Joomla 4?

Obvious question:have you completed all the required fields?

What were you trying to save in terms of the settings? It may have been easier just to list which settings you were changing as the screenshots are numerous and not easily readable or understandable as to what you're trying to change.

You might also succeed in editing the configuration.php file directly (e.g. Notepad++) and make some of the changes there. Note you may have to change the file's permissions to "write" permission (e.g. CHMOD 644), make the changes, save the file back to the server then switch the file back to read-only (444).

Note you probably won't reach the developers on this forum, it is mainly for user to user interaction. Developer's focus is the Github site for the Joomla project.

My Joomla is 4.2.4

I did not touch my configuration settings even before migration from Joomla3. And all worked properly.
After migrating and after several months I decided to add some other meta descriptions. And now I cannot save even if I will not add any description.
I cannot save any configuration setting.

If you are editing with ftp (or your Host's file manager) you need to change the permission from 444 to save your edit. 644 should be enough to save via ftp, then after you save change it back to 444.

If you are trying to save from Joomla Admin then you probably have Ownership issues. https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/

Check every tab for required fields.

Thank you very much. I did all suggestions, but only after upgrading Joomla to 4.2.5 I could save the configuration successfully.
