Hi there!

My testsite is running smooth and browsing it is no problem BUT an error message has started to appear and making it impossible to do anything in the edit mode:

Title: Error in web service method GetMessages
Content: Server was unable to process request. ---> '.', hexadecimal value 0x00, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 1. 

Any idea of what might be wrong?

Best Regards Krezz

Check the file ~\App_Data\Composite\DataStores\Composite.Data.Types.IUserConsoleInformations_public.xml - check if it's a valid XML file. If it is not, fix it by replacing the content with this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<UserConsoleInformations />

and save, and you should be running fine.
