Running Moodle 3.5.2 (Build: 20180910) on Linux.
Have had an issue crop up for some faculty setting up Assignment activities and getting "Error writing to database" error. I had trouble replicating the problem, but heard from a faculty member tonight that it occurs when she unselects the 'remind to grade by' date.
I've now replicated this. When I set up an Assignment and leave the 'remind me to grade by' date enabled as default, the Assignment activity is created with no problems. If I unselect that option when setting up the Assignment, I reliably get the 'error writing to database' error.
Has this been reported before? I did some basic searching in this forum and on the Moodle Tracker, but wasn't able to pull up any related posts or reported issues.
Any suggestions as to what might be going on? Or how we can address this issue on our server?
