We have a default Magento 2.1 store setup (Nexcess)

We uploaded our products via Dataflow (I did create a product manually and I am able to edit the simple products)

EDIT: It appears it is only for configurable products

When I go back to edit a product the "gifs" spins but no confirmation of a save.

This applies to all parts of the product section.

I have tried the following:

composer update


rm -r www/pub/static/_requirejs/
rm -r www/pub/static/adminhtml/
rm -r www/pub/static/frontend/
rm -f www/pub/static/deployed_version.txt
rm -r www/var/page_cache/
rm -r www/var/view_preprocessed/
rm -rf www/var/di www/var/view_preprocessed/ www/var/tmp/ www/var/cache/ www/var/composer_home/ www/var/generation/ www/var/report/ www/var/page_cache/ www/var/resource_config.json www/var/.cachestates.json www/var/.regenerate
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
php bin/magento indexer:reindex

That didn't help so I un-tared the 2.1 tarball and re rsync'd it to the project.

I have cleared cache, re-indexed.

No customizations, Fresh Magento 2 install.

We did find this: Do I need to re-compile? I just did that! (I did update permissions)

The web host has specific mod security rules that M2 triggered

It appears that your site was triggering so mod security rules. I was able to identify the rules and have added the needed exceptions. Please take a moment to test your site to ensure everything is functioning as intended. If you encounter any errors or have any questions please let us know.

All is working now.
