[resolved] front end not appearing (8 posts)

    I'm picking up on a project where the previous person left off where there is a highly customized wordpress install. The site is a developement site called (W) where we do testing before rolling out features to the public site.

    The problem is that the subdomain http://W.emazzanti.net does not render the wordpress installation. It just shows a blank page. However the database exists and I can login at this location http://W.emazzanti.net/core/wp-login.php. If you go there you'll see the login screen. And when I login I can see that all the pages and posts and plugins and everything exist. But if I'm in the dashboard and open the editor for one of those posts or pages and click "View Page" I just get a blank page, much like the blank homepage at http://W.emazzanti.net.

    The strange thing is that the server IS properly resolving. I uploaded at test file which is visible at http://w.emazzanti.net/testA.jpg. And we can see http://w.emazzanti.net/core/license.txt. So again, the server IS resolving.

    I was told it might be due to an open_basedir restriction. So I uploaded a vhost.conf file with this code in it:
    php_admin_value open_basedir “none”
    but that did not resolve the issue.

    any ideas? please advise. thanks in advance!

    Yeah, if you look at this screenshot, you'll see (in the left window) where the files are located for this W site.

    SCREENSHOT HERE

    And on the right side of the screenshot, you'll see that the standard wordpress files are in the /core folder. Its a very weird setup (to me at least) because there's also a wp-content folder in the folder before /core.

    Any idea???

    what if you "Copy (NOT MOVE!) the index.php and .htaccess files from the core directory into the root or w directory of your site"

    got it fixed now. had something to do with the settings at the bottom of the wp-config file. wish i could elaborate but my hosting company helped trouble shoot and walked me through the fix and I'm still not certain what we did. anyway, thanks for reviewing and adding incite!
