Support » Installing WordPress » Blank page on fresh wordpress installation, mysql 5 php 5.2.5

  • I’m having some problems installing wordpress 2.3.2. I’m running PHP 5.2.5, Mysql 5.0.37

    After I setup my wp-config.php I get a blank page. If I show tables on the mysql database I’ve created, there’s nothing in there, but I’ve checked at least 20 times that my login credentials work properly from that host.

    I’ve set error reporting to E_ALL and I only get these two errors from my php log:

    [31-Jan-2008 15:27:04] PHP Notice: Undefined offset: 0 in /content/apache2/ on line 286
    [31-Jan-2008 15:17:52] WordPress database error Table ‘enterprise2blogwp.wp_options’ doesn’t exist for query SELECT option_value FROM wp_options WHERE option_name = ‘siteurl’

    Here’s my wp-config.php

    // ** MySQL settings ** //
    define('DB_NAME', 'myblog');    // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'wordpress');     // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'mypassword'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'dbprod01');    // 99% chance you won't need to change this value
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    // You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique prefix
    $table_prefix  = 'wp_';   // Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    // Change this to localize WordPress.  A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to wp-content/languages.
    // For example, install to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');
    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__).'/');

  • Also my script memory limit is set to 64M so this is not the problem.

    I’ve tried 2.3.1 and 2.3.2. No luck so far.

    The only potential variant is that we are running ioncube on this.

    I tried removing the ioncube_loader and that did not solve the problem.

    Am I the only person seeing this problem?

    I see at least a dozen tickets that are similar to mine, but going unanswered. It there somebody at wordpress I can pay to debug this.

    Is anybody out there?

    Someone sent me an export .sql from a wordpress blog runing with mysql 4.1.2

    I was able to import and the tables and content looked in in mysql 5.0.45, and wordpress does NOT complain of connection error. I too, am staring at blank pages.

    I read somewhere the other day something about a mysql 5.0.4? problem with “order of tables” but I haven’t been able to find it again.

    I don’t have an answer for you, but I have the same problem 🙂 php 5 and mysql 5.

    Same problem here. Oh WordPress support gods, where are you?

    Does WordPress provide professional support services that I can pay for to get this resolved?

    I’ve got the same problem, it’s driving me mad for the last 3 days 🙁

    Me too… this is crazy.
    Is there anything we can do?

    Seems like an install of the new WordPress solved my problem 🙂
    In sum: for me the 2.3.2 version didn’t work and the 2.3.3 version DOES work 🙂

    Hi MelleG,

    Can you tell us where you’ve found version 2.3.3 ?

    I don’t find it… 🙁


    PS: I think I’ve found it… sorry…

    After 2 hour searching

    fixing it :
    in php.ini : option log error in a file (don’t remember the exact syntaxe)
    -> log_error : On
    -> specify a filename for logerror some line after


    restart a fresh install

    worked with a 2.5 rc1 + php5 + mysql5

    Brievly: it seems that if php do not log error in a file , wordpress won’t install

    Error logging wasn’t the problem for me. I’m getting blank pages too. So annoying.
