I dont know why I can not create a page with old date
maybe your theme or your configuration only shows the last 2 weeks posts?

If I change to any date, it does not save

I dont know how to change the default theme configuration
OK - "it does not save"  is different from "it doesn't display it"
are you logged on with admin privileges ?
so there are a couple of things here. For starters, what theme are you using? Themes can do things like this and if it is your theme doing it, there isn't very much you can do about it except get another theme or modify the theme yourself (though if the theme get's updates and  you update it your changes may be lost). Are there custom settings for your theme that might alleviate this issue?

Try switching to the default theme, changing your post dates, and see if they appear. If they do, you have a theme issue.
