    After installation I get only a white screen.

    I see the url http://www.website.nl/wp-admin/install.php
    but nothing happend, nothing on my screen.

    If I make a change in the config. then he cann't connect to the db.
    So I nottice the db works.

    Anyone a good answer.

    1. Try adding this line to your wp-config.php file:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');
    
    2. If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini
    If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
    
    3. If you don't have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
    
    4. Talk to your host.

    Hello!

    I have got the very same problem on a fresh new install (first one for me). I have done everything!

    -the memory in the php.ini file was set at 128M so I changed it to 64M. -Did the same thing in wp-config.php
    -phpinfo.php looks OK, has a mysql field
    -I echoed something in the install.php and it shows it
    -I set in .htaccess a line with
    php_value display_errors '1'
    and no errors. Just a blank page dislaying the echo sentence

    Win Vista with last version of Easyphp and WordPress running on my laptop

    heelp :(

    P.S.
    I read on a forum something about permissions. Could it be? The user in phpmyadmin has global privileges

    I did it :)

    But I did 2 things:

    first I checked my wp-config.php and it dind't had a ?> at the ending !!! This is a today download of the kit so...
    I fixed it and refreshed it with ctrl+F5 and still nothing

    then the second thing I did: in wp-confg I replaced localhost with 127.0.0.1 and it worked!

    So if anyone please cand give some details about why 127.0.0.1 worked better and localhost didn't I would love to understand it :)

    Thank you Samboll. I tried to run WordPress on Easyphp but I didn't get through. It was far easier on Wampp. And thanks bububaby. I had the same problem as you. I needed to change localhost to 127.0.0.1. However I don't know why.
    Good luck with wordpress!
