Entries Not Being Saved in WordPress' Formidable Plugin

I’ve recently started using DigitalOcean and it’s been great. I installed my first WordPress website on a Droplet recently, and quickly realized that emails didn’t work by default. I followed a couple tutorials on here to setup postfix, and now emails are sending correctly.

When I go and check the entries within WordPress however, it shows there are 14 Formidable entries, yet when I go to view the content of the entries, it’s entirely empty (as though there are 0 entries). Within other hosting environments, I’ve used this exact setup many times, and I’ve never seen this happen before. I’ve been watching for console errors, and ajax response errors, but everything is coming back as a success.

Any ideas what could be causing this issue? I’m using Bedrock ( to run WordPress, so I did not use the 1-click install built into the Droplets.

I found the solutions, and it had nothing to do with my Droplet configuration. Formidable has a conflict that occurs when a version prior to 2.0 is installed when WordPress is version 4.2 or newer. Upgrading to the most recent version of the plugin solved the issue.
