Blank Page on Install (12 posts)

    Folks,
    I have doublechecked the MySql database connection info, namely userID, password, database, and host... they seem to be OK. I can log in myself using those credentials.
    However, when I run try to get through the steps of the "Famous 5-minute install", when I run /wp-admin/install.php, all I get is a blank web browser page.
    Has anyone seen this before? I'm running PHP 5.0 on Windows 2003 server with IIS 6.0. PHP itself seems fine, as does MySql.
    Help... I like WordPress and would like to use it on my site.
    Thanks!

    Are you running WP 1.2?
    Please, take a look at this thread: http://wordpress.org/development/2004/08/php5/

    Does WordPress require Apache?

    Not really. It's optional; see here: http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/
    What the link in my previous post says: WP 1.2 doesn't work with PHP 5.0!

    The post you referred me to is Apache-specific, but I suppose if it blows chunks under Apache it is even more likely to do so under IIS 6.0.
    Thanks.

    I'm using nightly build 2004-11-02 with PHP 5.0.2 and Apache 2.0.52 on Gentoo Linux, and I also get the blank install page /wordpress/wp-admin/install.php From reading a previously closed topic, it would seem that was fixed, but apparently it isn't?

    This will be the third time saying this in this thread, WP currently does not work with PHP 5.

    Well we do not have php5.0, but an earlier version,(somewhere around 4.3, I think) and we also get a blank page when we upload .

    macmanx, the problem being reported here is unrelated to that blog entry. Posting it over and over does no one any good. But this might: I think I solved this problem. As it turns out, mod_php had been compiled without MySQL support. Oooooops! Waiting for it to recompile right now...

    This did indeed fix the problem. Make sure your PHP has mysql support built in. If you aren't sure, run phpinfo(); and look for the mysql section. If it's missing, you don't have MySQL support.

    We do have mySQL support. We had been running the blog with Wp version0.72. Trying to upgrade to 1.2 has resulted in blank screen failure. We are using php4.3. Any other suggestions???

    I had a problem with the balnk screen, php-mysql package was missing on Fedora Core 1. Installing that and restarting the web server did the trick.
