the answer for all question about Oxygen Builder plugin and WordPress



looking increasing likely that using multiple tabs, and editing a new page before the other page had wrapped up its processes re locking and unlocking posts for editing screwed up things in the db and made pages unsavable.


I’m so damned frustrated with Oxygen right now. I get to a point on every page where it won’t save. I hit save, and the cog spins and spins and spins and then gives me a very nondescript error (“Error occurred while saving”).

If I hit refresh, the page goes back to before the save (obviously) and I can save just fine there, but if I add anything else, or make a change to anything on the page, back to the spinning.

This is NOT a huge page. There are 2 sections on it. One has a div, rich text and a button, the other has a columns, one of which I managed to get populated before the spinning prevents me from doing anything else on it.

I’ve restarted the server. I’ve resigned the shortcodes. I’ve disabled Oxygen’s CSS Cache and nothing has worked.

It’s not a plugin conflict as Oxygen is the only plugin active – and it’s at the latest public version.

I had asked previously if anyone was having this issue on Cloudways/Vultr High Freq, and some people mentioned disabling Varnish, which I did, and things worked fine for a few days.

Now I’m on a new build and the same crap is happening. Varnish is disabled completely on the server. Pretty sure it’s not a resources issue, as these are the settings:

Server architecture Linux 4.9.0-15-amd64 x86_64
Web server Apache/2.4.25 (Debian)
PHP version 7.4.21 (Supports 64bit values)
PHP SAPI fpm-fcgiPHP max input variables 10000
PHP time limit 600
PHP memory limit 256M
Max input time 1000
Upload max filesize 32M
PHP post max size 32M

I’m literally desperate for any suggestions at this point. I’m pretty sure I’ve done absolutely everything I can.

Every time I start making some real headway into a build with Oxygen something like this crops up and I have to abandon it and use another tool.

Absolutely any help, suggestions etc. welcomed at this stage. I will literally try anything.

    Any JS errors in the console?

  2. John Dalezios says

    yeah, I’ve had it as well,

    a) save freequently
    b) clear browser history, (usually previous 24 hours) and enter again

    I had it happen to me for a day or 2 the past week but only from my laptop, did this and am fine now

    Ok, looked in the logs and this is cropping up every time there’s a save crash:

    2021/07/16 15:03:08 [error] 6901#6901: *1685 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: ********, server: ********, request: “POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=set_oxygen_edit_post_lock_transient&nonce=c0982d30a0&post_id=12 HTTP/2.0”, upstream: “”, host: “********”, referrer: “********?ct_builder=true&ct_inner=true&oxygen_iframe=true”

    Can anyone make any sense out of that?

  4. Peadar Mac Niallais says

    Escalated it to Oxy support to see if they can help

  5. Blue Li says

    Do you have any custom function for the site?

  6. Fang Acorn says

    sometimes happened,just copy shortcode and paste in new page can solve…..

  7. Michael Dennis says

    clear your cache? What browser are you using?

  8. Lyle Dove says

    Iā€™d try changing your max file sizes to 100mb each as well. Just to eliminate that as a hurdle.
