The site is working except that any attempt to change content (i.e., update a contact) results in

Network Error Unable to reach the server. Please refresh this page in your browser and try again.

I've verified that the database id/password is correct and has all privs.

I don't see anyplace where the old URLs might be.

Is there a way to debug this?

I've been through over a dozen similar question/answers without finding a solution.

  • Is the inspector console blank for errors? I have had paths for extensions cause this. Even after updating paths and directories. If you have not already I would clear caches and templates_c directories Sep 2, 2018 at 19:05
  • I usually use overrides to get the directories and urls working on conversions develop.tadpole.cc/snippets/20 Sep 2, 2018 at 19:12

    We should probably change that "Network Error" message - to something more useful. It more often than not refers to a fatal/PHP error. Refreshing and trying again is not going to fix these. Sep 2, 2018 at 22:19

Dammit! The views code in the database saves the userid for the query, which changed when I moved things. There's a WordPress plugin that can fix it, though I exported the database and did a search/replace to change the old user to the correct one.
