[resolved] white screen when installing (10 posts)

    I've followed the steps in the codex on installing wordpress. I've downloaded wordpress, connected with the ftp-adress, changed the MYSQL. I'm no supposed to go to http://chsense.com/wp-admin/install.php, but when I do that the screen is all white. No window for login or anything, nor any error message. I've also tried chsense.com/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php with no luck. Where did this go wrong? What is my next step?

    What other site did you have running on that domain?

    What do you mean by other site? The host?

    No - there was another site running on this domain. All calls to http://chsense.com/ are being redirected to http://chsense.com/assets/fallback/index.html

    oh, yes that. I tried to put up an index site just to see if anything changed, but it didn't. So I deleted it from the remote site. Still it seems to redirect to that one. I've deleted everything in the site manager and created a new site, but this is still with me...

    You need to remove the redirection that was associated with that old site. It's this redirection that may be stopping you from installing WordPress.

    But that doesn't explain why it was the same before i did that stunt. Nothing have changed.

    I'm sorry but all I can tell you is that you are not going to be able to run a WordPress site with that redirection in place.
