Thanks for all the suggestions about the previous error I posted. Unfortunately, today the errors got worse.
We have seen the following:
1. Correct answers not receiving credit.
2. Problems disappearing from problem sets, both before and after they are attempted.
3. Problems being reported as being attempted 1 or 2 times before they are attempted for the first time.
The errors have gotten so pervasive that we have suspended Webwork in our courses. Hopefully, only temporarily.
We are running Webwork 2.1.3. Unfortunately, I currently do not know
which database setup we are using (the computer support person set it
up. When I find out, I will post it).
Any suggestions on whether this is a Webwork 2.1.3 error or a database
error? Any suggestions on how to fix it. If it is a Webwork error, what
version of Webwork should we replace it with?
Thanks in advance,
ps. I have learned that we are using gdbm as our database.
pps. I just read Jeff's post
which seems to be similar to the "first" errors we saw yesterday. I'm
guessing that Webwork 2.1.3 is incompatible with gdbm and either we
need to use mySQL or reinstall an earlier version of Webwork. Does this
