'Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page' on production server

'Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page' on production server

When calling up the items for the page from the menu (new app), I get an error "Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page. "

 

From the logs I find the following

 

“Request validation failed for action "Magento\Framework\App\Action\Forward\Interceptor" {"exception":"[object] (Magento\\Framework\\App\\Request\\InvalidRequestException(code: 0): Invalid request received at /var/www/html/magento/vendor/magento/module-backend/App/Request/BackendValidator.php:152)"} []”

 

This only on the production server, on the development server (XAMPP) everything works fine.

Who can help me on this issue?

I have already tried all the solutions proposed in the community for the issue “Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page. "

 

Thanks

Re: 'Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page' on production server

Hello @pietro_di loren ,

have you tried this,

 

Open your server's php.ini file with root user,

search for `max_input_vars` and set its value as `100000` 

 

max_input_vars = 100000

Thank you

Hi, @smita_kagwade ,

Thanks for the reply, but I've tried this solution before but it doesn't work.

 

Thanks!

@pietro_di loren,

 

kindly check this can be a full-page caching issue. and you can confirm that by disabling Full Page Cache for some time on the production server. 

if that works than kindly check the theme files on that page.

Hi, @amitsamsukha 

I have already tried to clear all caches,

 

sudo chmod -R 0777 var/ pub/ generated/

sudo rm -rf var/cache/* pub/static/* generated/*

sudo php bin/magento setup:upgrade

sudo php bin/magento setup:di:compile

sudo php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

sudo php bin/magento indexer:reindex

sudo php bin/magento cache:flush

sudo chmod -R 0777 var/ pub/ generated/

 

but i always have the same problem

could the problem be related to the theme? how could i solve it?

on my xampp it works fine

Re: 'Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page' on production server

@dilorenzopd73c try disabling your cache for some time on the production server 

sudo php bin/magento cache:disable

@smita_kagwade @amitsamsukha I tried all the solutions mentioned above but none of them seems to be working. This is the follow up from the owner of the ticket created. Can anyone please look into this so that it will unblock us from our development?

@amitsamsukha  This is an internal link to the control panel and that the error is the one indicated in the first message  'Invalid security or form key. Please refresh the page`. I am facing this issue locally as well.
