  • Did you talk with eWay team? They will be able to help you out. Also, look for this line of exception: Array to string conversion in /vendor/magento/framework/DB/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php on line. You should find this in server log or var/log/exception.log. Commented Aug 13, 2020 at 5:41

  • May I know if you had migrated M1 to M2 and you were using "M2e" extension in M1? Also, does it happens every time or only sometimes? Commented Aug 14, 2020 at 4:09

To know the exact reason, update the following core file:


Please comment out the try-catch same as below:

public function savePaymentInformationAndPlaceOrder(
    \Magento\Quote\Api\Data\PaymentInterface $paymentMethod,
    \Magento\Quote\Api\Data\AddressInterface $billingAddress = null
) {
    $this->savePaymentInformation($cartId, $paymentMethod, $billingAddress);
    // try {
        $orderId = $this->cartManagement->placeOrder($cartId);
    // } catch (\Magento\Framework\Exception\LocalizedException $e) {
    //     throw new CouldNotSaveException(
    //         __($e->getMessage()),
    //         $e
    //     );
    // } catch (\Exception $e) {
    //     $this->getLogger()->critical($e);
    //     throw new CouldNotSaveException(
    //         __('A server error stopped your order from being placed. Please try to place your order again.'),
    //         $e
    //     );
    // }
    return $orderId;

Now, try to place order again. You will be able to see the detailed error in log file or may be in Browser > Inspect Element > Network.

Note: Please do not forget to revert the core file after updating the code.

  • Find this path: app/code/Magento/Checkout/Model/PaymentInformationManagement.php OR check symlink folder.

  • For my clarity, does 2.1.x code support 2.3.x?

In our case, the same message had to do with RabbitMQ credentials. As explained in this link https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/commerce-operations/installation-guide/prerequisites/rabbitmq.html to connect with RabbitMQ on Magento you should insert in app/etc/env.php these credentials:

'amqp' =>
array (
  'host' => 'yourhost.example.com',
  'port' => '5672',
  'user' => 'magento',
  'password' => 'magento',
  'virtualhost' => '/'
