Not sure if this is the right forum to ask for, but I have a strange behaviour when using internal SuiteCRM Email Editor.
Here’s what I try to do:
Open a contact
Click on contact’s email address
The email editor openes with broken layout and empty form fields (except the mail account to send from) -> Pls see attachment
What I expect:
after clicking the email address the editor opens and shows up with the contact’s email address in corresponding form field
What I did before:
I updated from 7.9.4 to 7.9.9 (pretty sure it did not work before either, so updating was the first thing I was trying)
After update it still didn’t work…
So I set up SuiteCRM 7.9.9 from scratch (full install package, new database) and import the formerly backed database.
Now I had a clean setup with “old” data in database.
Still the same error.
3rd idea was to setup a brand new and clean SuiteCRM with also clean database. Making a baseline setup and creating a contact by hand led me to a clean create email window.
Now, when clicking on contact’s email address, the opening window looks clean and is already filled with the contact’s email address as expected.
So, I think it could be a problem with the “old” imported database. Maybe it is corrupt or something else.
So my question is:
What can I do to resolve this issue?
How can I cleanup the database without losing data?
Or is there any other I could do to get rid of that behaviour?
Any help is appreciated.
P.S.: @board admin: If this is the wrong board pls feel free to move it to the right place. Thx
[quote=“pgr” post=58662]Did you export and import the database in the same SuiteCRM version?
Because if you exported in one version, then imported in a more advanced version, there could be database differences that are breaking the app.
To behonest, this is an error following me I think since we upgraded from 7.7 to 7.9.
But this time (first try) I did not export from older version and imported to newer (7.9.5 -> 7.9.9). But I’m pretty sure that I never did that export import thing during upgrade.
Export import (second try) was done because first try didn’t solve the problem
Tried that, but no changes…
It’s a 7.9.5 which isn’t available at the download page. Any ideas where to find?
I have a fully running productive system so this is not possible. Lot of data will be lost…
I tried almost the whole day to examin the problem within database and also php files.
I’ve searched for problems within database tables, exported contacts list from 7.9.5 and imported into 7.9.9 (some import errors “NOTICE”, but worked)
I think there’s something wrong when calling the Email UI from contacts form. Same probs when opening from accounts form.
Is that the same email account details you’re using in both cases?
There were bugs (already fixed in the latest) where it was using an incorrect “From” address, taken from a different account. Some servers will allow a bogus “From” address, others won’t, and will give an error.
If you can simply upgrade to 7.9.10 (if you can’t find it yet, wait a few hours and retry), that could solve everything.
Another piece of advice that might solve a lot of mysteries for you is to try and use this debugging procedure:
