[resolved] Blank Page after Upgrade to 2.7 (31 posts)

    I have had upgrades before, everything should be fine, but I get a blank page. After directing my page to "upgrade" it did so and finally I could see the admin page, but when I go to "View Site" I get a blank white page.

    Any idea why that is?

    Clear your browser cache
    Disable any plugins
    Clear/delete any cache folders if using a caching plugin
    Change to the WordPress Default theme.

    Okay, cleared the browser cache,
    All plugins are disabled
    No caching plugin installed, only askimet spam, and it's disabled
    I've changed to the default theme, still a blank screen.

    Hmmm

    And Michael, thanks for the rapid reply. I've never seen such quick and rapid support on the forums

    A link to see the problem.

    Or consider redoing Steps 7 and 8 of Upgrading WordPress Extended. Make sure you are using the ASCII transfer mode in your FTP client.

    Since I can see the dashboard, I clicked on the "upgrade" and it is doing a "re-install" to the current 2.7 version.

    If after that it does not work, I'll make another note and send you the link. I'd send you a link now, but it's password protected to even be viewable.

    And again thanks for the awesome and quick responses.

    Well disable the password for now--does that solve the problem?

    If you have control over the server, you could try turning on PHP error reporting to see a little more information.

    I guess I'd need to disable the password in the dashboard somewhere?

    I can see that the re-install is still working, I can watch some things happening on the FTP server end, so hopefully with that process something might happen that takes care of the problem, crossing my fingers.

    Well,

    I'm at a loss as to what the problem is. I re-uploaded all the files via FTP too, but still get that blank page.

    Check for any errors on your server, for instance if there is an error_log file.

    I just uploaded all of those anew, and now I only had one error:

    File activity incomplete. 1 file(s) or folder(s) were not completed.
    Files updated: 67

    Oh,

    Michael, to answer your initial question, I can't find an error other than the FTP error I posted. I've logged into my cPanel and don't find where it would be, no log file that I've found.

    Well it still doesn't seem like you are getting a complete FTP upload. So keep trying. I use FileZilla 2.2.32 and it works good for uploading WordPress files.

    I'm using Dreamweaver's FTP, and it has never before had failure to upload like it is now. I continue to upload again when it says some files had errors, and they work the next round. I'm uploading the whole thing again right now. This sure is strange.

    I'll upload again these last ones, but I've uploaded them plenty of times after they seemingly didn't upload before.

    I made a clean fresh install in a different folder and with a different db-prefix.
    I get "Page cannot be displayed." in IE and a blank page in Firefox.
    I checked Filezilla and it says there are no failed uploads.

    Strange. I hope for your sake it stays live.

    Well Hallelujah!

    Uploading again for the 10th time, after downloading wordpress again and re-writting over the files again too, and wallah!, The blank page now shows up with content.

    Crazy.

    I still get a blank page. -> blog.voodoomedia.ch
    I downloaded it again today and uploaded it once more. Still doesn't work.
    Do I have now to create a new thread because this one is "resolved"?

    Had the same problem. My wordpress files are in a subdirectory of my domain, but the index.php is in de root of my domain. So after the upgrade in index.php I had to change:
    require('./wp-blog-header.php');
    into
    require('SUBDIRNAME/wp-blog-header.php');

    Perhaps this helps!?

    I had the blank page problem. Re-applying the default theme fixed the problem.

    I think the problem was simply that I hadn't copied over my custom theme files. Even though WP appeared to have correctly reverted to the default theme as part of the upgrade, something was still broken. So just forcing it to explicitely apply the default theme fixes things... for me at least.

    the usual...

    require('./wp-blog-header.php');

    from <blog_root>/index.php is fine. If it wasn't, all pages would be broken, not just the blog's default page.

    I tried the theme swap mentioned above, but the blog's default page is blank in the wordpress default and several other themes.

    I also injected code to get any errors that might be occurring, but I'm not getting any. Here's the code (goes in <blog_root>/index.php...

    ini_set('display_errors','1');
    ini_set('display_startup_errors','1');
    error_reporting(E_ALL);

    Anybody have any other ideas???

    @TaxPolicy - it's working now. After renaming index.php to something that wordpress couldn't find, trying to access a permalink (which of course failed), putting [blog_root]index.php back, AND reloading the [blog_root], it displayed just fine. Had to be caching of some kind.
