Changes to a page are not being saved

    Hi there, I’ve searched for this problem and found some threads, but all of them are several or many years old. Also tried some of the suggested solutions: Turning off visual editor in profile settings, using another browser and even another account.

    The problem is like this:

    Whatever changes I make to a certain page, it will not be saved by WordPress. The only thing updated is the “Last edited by” name.

    No text changes, no title changes, no status/visibility or page attribute changes. WordPress will say that changes have been saved after I click the update button, but all content stays the same.

    I activated WP debug mode, but there are no errors or warnings.

    Last edit to the page was made in 2005. Since then, we upgraded our server from PHP 5.6 to 7.1 and from MySQL 5.5 to 5.7 – although everything else is working fine, might there be a connection?

    Also, WordPress is of course latest version 4.8.1

    The blog I need help with is
