Settings do not seem to be written correctly


I am running into a problem. When I set settings in the admin panel, for instance, topic title length . I get them written. Then if i check the postgres db the settings are written here as well. Then, I do an api call against the API to do something like post a topic. And I get errors that the topic title is too long (which i just edited down in the settings). If i check the DB its correct. If i check the web gui interface (have to refresh) then the default settings show up.

So, in effect when setting my settings I write them to the database. But when I do an API call the settings are read from defaults? or maybe a config file? or redis? or something?

How do I troubleshoot this issue?

Did you follow our standard installation instructions? It sounds like something could be wrong with your Redis setup…
