NEVER use notepad to edit php files
Just a word of suggestion for everyone. Never ever use notepad to edit php files. I spent the good part of 6 hours trying to figure out one of those white screen warnings. The WP FAQ was right about what the problem was, and that was junk characters at the beginning of my wp-config.php file. However, neither notepad nor notepad++ could see these characters. What’s worse is that the FAQ says “notepad is fine” Well, based on the experience I just had, Notepad is NOT FINE. If you’re going to edit php files, I suggest HTML Kit. It’s free and it saw what the other two programs did not. Hope this posts saves someone some time that I wish I had back…
