Support » Plugin: Pods - Custom Content Types and Fields » Pods Relationship not appearing after moving host

  • Resolved melisa.ciputra


    Hi guys,

    My pod’s input with field type: relationship are not appearing after moving host. The pods worked fine in the old hosting site. The error I got is: Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 ()

    I matched my plugins to my old hosts so there’s no plugin conflicts. I suspect this is server issue but not sure what to tell the hosting support guy. Has anyone else experience this? Any idea?

    Thank you in advance.
    Cheers, Mel.

  • Another thing, the new host is Siteground. I have turned off memcache and even deactivate the entire SG Optimizer and purge caching after but no luck. Increased the memory but also no luck.

    How did you perform the migration?

    Also, did you go into Pods Admin, Settings, Clear Cache?

    Hi Jim, thanks for your reply. Siteground did the migration for us so I’m not sure how they did it (using CPANEL maybe). I’ve cleared the pods cache multiple times already.
    Increasing PHP and WP memory did not help either. I created new pods and RELATIONSHIP field type is still not appearing with same error. Does relationship field type require special resources?

    I’ve talked to Siteground and they were baffled too.

    Any idea? Thanks again.

    Siteground should have more information in their server logs. The 500 should actually be pointing to something specific. There is one table that is required for relationships wp_podsrel but you’d be getting very specific SQL errors if it didn’t exist or had permission errors, or it should.

    The cPanel -> Error Log tool plus the php_error.log should provide detailed information.

    Thanks @hristo-sg 🙂

    Thanks Jim and Hristo for your input.

    So we could not see anything wrong in the error log. Perhaps because the error only shown in the browser inspect?

    Anyway, The Siteground Support guy managed to solve this issue by changing the website’s PHP version from 7.0 to 5.6 somehow? This is weird because our previous host was at PHP version 7.0.

    Any idea how moving PHP version back fix it? I am worried about sacrificing PHP version since it’s old.

    Thanks again guys.

    You said the error was only showing in the browser: like a JavaScript conflict?

    The error only seen on browser inspect as shown here
    This is when the relationship not showing:
    This is what it’s meant to look like and after it’s fixed

    Thanks Jim

    It’s definitely not loading the relationship field at all in that situation which would normally indicate a JavaScript conflict. But if the server is responding with a response of 500, it’s got to be providing more details at the server level. You said you had the issue under PHP 7.0, what about a higher level of PHP?

    Hi Jim,

    Sorry I just checked the Debug Information above and was mistakenly said PHP 7.0. The error happened when PHP was PHP 7.1. The Support guy fixed it by changing it to PHP 5.6.
    I just tried 7.2 and 7.3 but they came back with same error.
    I tried PHP 7.0 and the error was not there! So basically the error starts showing when it’s PHP 7.1 and above.
    I will settle with PHP 7.0 and close this issue.

    Thank you so much for your help Jim. I would not have tried other PHP versions if you did not suggest them.

    Plugin Author Jim True


    I’m a little worried by the newer php versions causing the issue, so I’m still having Scott look this one over. We might reach out to you for some more information if that’s okay.

    Sure Jim. I’ll be happy to help.

    Plugin Author Scott Kingsley Clark


    Melisa, do you have access to a site / staging environment that still has this issue happening?

    Hi Scott, yes I still have access to the clients site.
