2.9.1 in german language creates empty dashboard (3 posts)

    Hi out there,

    a few days ago I installed version 2.9.1 (the original DE version). I installed a new blog so I completely installed WP from scratch.

    After telling blog name and mail address the database tables had been created. The screen disappeared and then normally the page shows the created password. In my case the page just showed the WP logo but no information at all so I did not know the password to log into dashboard.

    So, db tables deleted, wp-config language changed to '' and again: entering blog name and mail address. Now I saw the created password and could log into dashboard. Everything was working fine.

    So I changed wp-config again to 'de_DE' and - ooooops - wp-login.php showed correctly, I entered user and password and - dashboard showed an empty page!!!

    This is 100% reproducable.

    Any hint is highly appreciated.

    Thanks a lot and
    have a nice day,

    Uwe.

    Hi visitors,

    I got it.

    The reason was, that my hoster did not guide php to a php5 parser. I had to configure that manually.

    So I created a .htaccess file in my document root with the following content:

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
    AddHandler x-mapp-php5 .php
    Options -Indexes
    order allow,deny
    allow from all

    My page is still available to the open public, I do not have to take care about additional maintenance, is not more but also not less safe as before and WordPress works as it should be!
