Support » Installing WordPress » I can install 2.6 but not 2.7

  • I’ve been trying over the past few days to install WP2.7 here at work with no luck – I get the blank page treatment so many people have written about on this forum.

    I have successfully installed 2.7 on on web hosts such as godaddy and fasthosts but here at work there must be some permissions thing or a php problem (I don’t have direct access to the servers).

    So I tried 2.6 and it was fine – installed first time. Tried to upgrade but was faced again by white wall of death.

    Are there any differences in the installation process I need to tell my admins?

  • I don’t have a solution yet, but does your symptoms sound like mine in the following post?

    Are you on a windows box by chance?

    Yes it does and yes I am!

    Looks like we’re both in the same boat…if I figure something out I’ll post back…would appreciate you doing the same. Thanks.

    Still in the same boat, unable to install 2.7 but can install 2.6.

    Are there any differences in requirements between installing 2.6 and 2.7?

    Hmmm – if the database I’m using already has WP2.6 installations pointing it at – would that be a factor? Do I need a fresh database?

    well ive come to the point where i need another installation of WP and nope, a fresh database does not do the trick. i wish someone could come up with a checklist coz there’s enough people getting the dreaded white screen.

    Well I think u have to set permissions on your folders so that it ll work.If u dont mind then I would to work on your project.
