I have 2 webtree sites on the same server, the 2 with the 1.7.12 version
Version Apache 2.4.37
Version of PHP 7.3
Version of MySQL 10.1.37-MariaDB-cll-lve

When entering the first name it is not written automatically, see Copy of the screen when on the other site it is written automatically.
Would you have a solution lead, please?

in GEDCOM format, you must enter the name twice.

Once, you enter it as it is displayed (with slashes around the surname).

Secondly, you enter all the parts of the name.

e.g.
1 NAME Greg /Roach/
2 GIVN Greg
2 SURN Roach

It is tedious to enter things twice.
So, if the NAME can be calculated using the names parts, then webtrees will update the NAME automatically.
But if they are different, you must update the NAME separately.

For example, if the name was this, and you change the GIVN, then webtrees cannot calculate the NAME.
There is a mis-match between "Smith" and "Roach"

1 NAME Greg /Smith/
2 GIVN Greg
2 SURN Roach

In your example, I think you have a space at the end of the surname in the NAME field, but not in the SURN.

So, there is no match, and webtrees cannot update the NAME.

Suggestion:

Remove the space.
Save.
Edit again.
