Can't create/save Units in CoursePress 2.0.1

I upgraded CoursePress Pro from 1.x to 2.0.1 on a development site. Most of the plugins on this site are other WPMUDEV plugins, plus WooCommerce, Yoast, Beaver Builder page builder.

I was trying to save and add new units, but it's not working.

When adding new unit, the wheel just spins and nothing is added.

When trying to save existing unit, I get an error "Something went wrong. Unit was not saved!"

See attachment with screenshots of errors in Chrome console:

Are there any known issues right now with CoursePress Pro 2.0.1?

As a separate issue, I cannot dismiss "Install MarketPress plugin in order to sell courses" noticed. It keeps coming back after page reload.

Any help would be appreciated! I granted WPMUDEV support access to this website.

    Information submitted. I’ve already enabled debug.log.

    I did not mention this, but while you’re inside. Enabled CustomPress and check Chrome error console on the units page for CoursePress Pro. datepicker js is also causing an error there. It’s not related to the main issue as I’ve disabled CustomPress and issue is still there. It may be a bug though.

    Hi v1ktor ,

    Thanks for reporting this!

    We just had reported similar behavior by other members. It seems to be related to server configuration which don’t allow the PUT method. Currently I have replaced file wp-content/plugins/coursepress/2.0/asset/js/coursepress-unitsbuilder.js which should be using POST for now.

    We would recommend that you contact your host about it and ask if possible to allow PUT. Also we have reported this to the devs to take it under consideration for next release.

    Please try saving units and let us know how it goes.

    Hi, we have VPS so full control. I asked sysadmin about PUT, he said it’s impossible for PUT to be disabled otherwise site would not function correctly.

    Can you elaborate on what specifically we need to enable on server? We’re running NGINX.

    So we can look into the specific settings. Thanks for working on this.

    Hi v1ktor ,

    it’s impossible for PUT to be disabled otherwise site would not function correctly.

    Of this I understand that PUT is not disabled, so I am a bit confused here. So could you please clarify if it is indeed enabled, or that you should not enable it?

    I’m not familiar with nginx configuration, you could try overriding by adding following in .htaccess

    order deny,allow
    allow from all

    Could also confirm if the workaround described on my previous post works on your side?

    Best wishes and merry Christmas!
