Support » Fixing WordPress » Frustration: WordPress White Screen

  • Resolved irsankao


    Somehow 4 my wp sites got white screen when opened and it happened like in the same times. I don’t know why, I didn’t change anything.

    But when I do fresh wp install on a new domain, it’s working fine. These 4 are older domain names and had already running wordpress and they were all fine previously.

    I tried to do upgrade to 3.1 but I got this error message

    The database affikom3_wrdp9 is not working properly and the creation of a database backup file has failed. Please contact the sysadmin for further assistance. Include this message for reference.

    The initial installation has not been modified.

    I did manual FTP install with 3.1 WP version and when I tried to do mydomain/wp-admin/install.php I got white screen.

    I don’t know what to do. My hosting techie didn’t help either.

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides. You may need to try logging into your site to get this to kick in fully.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    – re-running the upgrade manually using wp-admin/upgrade.php.

    All done but I am still getting white screen when I typed mydomain/wp-admin/upgrade.php

    I did a fresh new WP install on different sub folder, of course it’s working fine and I edited the wp-config to use the old database and the same thing happen, white screen again. So it must have been the old database but how to fix it?

    I changed the theme to default and it’s working but when I activated the custom them. It’s white screen again.
