when I last checked my contact page I realized that Google Maps shows an error und checked my API Key in the Enfold backend. It says: “Could not connect to Google Maps with this API Key”. I have no idea why the key should not work anymore. Also tried it with a new key but without success – it’s alyways the connection issue. There is no restriction enabled.
PHP version: 7.3.11
Enabled APIs for the project:
Distance Matrix API
Maps Elevation API
Maps Embed API
Maps SDK for Android
Maps SDK for iOS
Maps Static API
Street View Publish API

Credentials did not work for me. Could you please update the credentials?

sorry for the inconvenience – I’ve created a new password for you.
I double checked the Google payment methods and – in deed – the credit card was expired so I set up my actual one.
But still the Enfold backend cannot connect with the API key.

Thanks for the update and login details, I see that you haven’t added an API key under Enfold->Google Services. Did you remove it from there? If not then please try to add it back again to see what happens then.

no, I didn’t remove it. It’s Enfold’s behaviour.
This is what I do: I enter an API key and save all changes,
Then I hit “Check API key”.
I get the error message: “Could not connect to Google Maps with this API Key”
After this the key gets removed from the field.
I save one now without hitting “Check API key”.November 9, 2019 at 2:13 pm #1155213
Update: When I just saved the Key without hitting “Check API key” the console showed a new error message: You must enable Billing on the Google Cloud Project at https://console.cloud.google.com/project/_/billing/enable Learn more at https://developers.google.com/maps/gmp-get-started
I didn’t know before that I had to upgrade something, I just had the billing account connected. So I followed the link and upgraded the Google Cloud project. Now it is working!
Thank you very much for your help.
