Preferences not saving when I click save

Postby Isaac.Eiland-Hall » 31 Jul 2016, 09:14

Just installed via Softaculous on a cPanel server (to which I have root) running CloudLinux+CageFS. I've set PHP 5.6 and did have to enable mbcrypt. :)

I was able to add a feed successfully. I went into preferences and changed a couple of settings - to check every 15min and to enable the API. I've clicked save as well as save-and-exit, and when I go back into preferences, they are reset to the defaults of 30min and API unchecked.

I've google-searched (which is how I found this forum). I read the "Read this before asking questions". I've looked at the wiki, as well as the first two pages of posts on the forum. I tried searching the forum, but it converted "preferences not saved" into "preferences -saved" which is normally clever, but I'm not sure how to rephrase in a way that will help me find previous posts on the matter, so I apologize for posting something that has surely been solved before. I know that's annoying and I do apologize.

Can someone point me in the right direction? :) Many thanks in advance.

I don't want to get TOO drunk with power ;)

I could just disallow the postings with a 'read the rules and try again' note.

judging by the endless duplicate first posts, i doubt anyone actually reads those notices tho

well, you know, reading IS hard, and thinking is even harder!

that's what I get for clicking the wrong button. ... *makes note* quit posting when tired.

I meant to say:
