Hi @davidok, we’ve actually encountered this problem in our production environment at the beginning of the week. We realized it happened after upgrading the Python version from 3.9 to 3.11.

You mentioned that you’re running version 1.24.2, but with our official Docker image, it was still on 3.9, so I’m not really sure how you can end up with Python 3.9 on Baserow 1.24.2. How are you self-hosting specifically? You mentioned Elestio, but do they have a different Python version?

Anyway, because released Baserow 1.25.1 earlier this week. This our images now officially includes Python 3.11, and we’ve resolved this problem as well. So updating to that version should work for you.

I upgraded Baserow instance to latest one and that resolved the issue.
