Support » Fixing WordPress » blank after initial success

  • jamielawrence


    Hi all –

    Apologies if this issue has been resolved, I have looked over the forums and found related topics but cannot find one that is specifically related to this problem.

    Basically I have a couple of websites with WordPress installed, one is on – I’ve had it running for probably a week or so, all the time it’s been working absolutely fine, last night I did some work on it and it worked fine afterwards. Now I’ve checked it this morning and it just forwards to a blank page and says it’s ‘Done’ loading at the bottom.

    This happened on another wordpress site of mine, it’s on but at the moment it’s messed up anyway as I’m halfway through manually installing WordPress 3.0.

    Any quick advice would be very much appreciated, especially in the case of – it’s a site for a rabbit rescue shelter and I said I’d have it up relatively quickly.

    Best wishes to you all,

    Try resettings your plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via FTP or SFTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename everything except the /twentyten/ directory. This will force the Twenty Ten theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue.

    If neither of those work, download WordPress again and delete then replace your copies of the /wp-admin/ and /wp-includes/ directories with fresh copies from the download.

    If that doesn’t work, can you let us know who your hosting provider is?



    Hi macmanx – many thanks to you for your quick response. I am at work at the moment and will try these tonight and get back to you ASAP. My hosting provider is Rackspace Cloud Servers.

    Best wishes,
