Since using MX from about 2015, I had problems editing and saving settings.
I resolved this a few months ago by having a fresh install without a Cumulus.ini
I added in settings the type of weather station and saved and closed which created a new ini file.
In notepad open the new ini file created and the previous one and copied the information from the old to the new and kept the same order of entries in the new file. Of course I copied all data from the old to the new setup.
My original ini file was copied from Cumulus 1 in 2015.
Cumulus MX now seems much "cleaner"

You *should* be able to create a clean copy automatically...

With Cumulus MX running...
1. Rename your Cumulus.ini to say Cumulus.ini.SAVE
2. In Cumulus go to one of the settings screens - say Alarms - and click the Update Alarms button
3. Cumulus should create a brand new Cumulus.ini file, with all the settings in the order it is expecting, and with none of the redundant C1 settings, or old removed Cumulus MX values.

This tends to reorder the FTP settings section the most as it has 100 "entries" to save each with several settings, and some more recently added so they get appended out of order at the end of a C1 config file.
