We're having an issue where PayPal Express checkout is shown as disabled in the Magento admin area regardless of what the actual status is in the database:
What's strange is that even the HTML on the page seems to show the status as enabled:
<select id="payment_express_checkout_required_enable_express_checkout" name="groups[express_checkout_required][fields][enable_express_checkout][value]" class="paypal-enabler paypal-ec-enabler shared shared-payment-paypal_express-active requires requires-payment_express_checkout_required_express_checkout select" disabled="">
<option value="1" selected="selected">Yes</option>
We can also see in the database that this payment method is actually enabled:
# config_id, scope, scope_id, path, value '425', 'default', '0', 'payment/paypal_express/active', '1'
Unfortunately, if we save the config from the admin area, it then sets this payment method to actually be disabled, and we can't change it back from the UI as the option is always disabled (as in the HTML element has a disabled attribute).
My question is, why is this select getting disabled and displaying a misleading value?
