  • Please search for this string in your module paths, such as in the app and vendor directories. There might be an issue defined in your XML file.

First backup this file then remove one line check it


<xs:element type="xs:string" name="default" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="1" />

this line removes only

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
* This schema must be used to validate esconfig.xml files
* Copyright © Magento, Inc. All rights reserved.
* See COPYING.txt for license details.
<xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
<xs:element name="config" type="configType" />
<xs:complexType name="configType" mixed="true">
  <xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="1">
     <xs:element name="stemmer" type="mixedDataType" />
     <xs:element name="stopwords_file" type="mixedDataType" />
<xs:complexType name="mixedDataType">
   <xs:choice maxOccurs="unbounded" minOccurs="1">
      <xs:any processContents="lax" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" />

After run command then check it.


This error has happened since ea-libxml2 was updated from ea-libxml2-2.11.5-1.1.2.cpanel.x86_64 to ea-libxml2-2.12.2-1.2.1.cpanel.x86_64

Temporary fix to get the site working again was to downgrade:

yum downgrade ea-libxml2-2.11.5-1.1.2

Now have to work out why the xml files don't work with the new package


You can reference This answer: My issue was resolved with this solution, But I am not sure Whether this solution might have some backward compatibility issues. Please apply first on the dev or local environment before on the production environment
