Support » Fixing WordPress » only blank page!

  • Resolved KlausMangold


    Sorry for crossposting (I posted my question in the installation board where it of course doesn’t belong it, but I cannot remove it). But here is my problem:

    I installed wordpress 2.7.1 and so far so good. Now I log in as admin – and all I get is a blank browser window!

    Who can help me?

  • deleted other post, though Installation forum was okay for that…

    Typically, a blank screen means you didn’t get a complete and intact set of WordPress files uploaded to your host. I’d consider downloading a fresh copy of WordPress from the Download tab at the top of this page, then use something like 7-Zip to extract the files. Then reupload the files to your host. Review Uploading WordPress to a remote host and make sure you are using ASCII transfer mode in your FTP client.

    If you have an .htaccess file, that too could be causing the problem–rename that if necessary.

    Thank you so far. In the meantime I tried the following: Installed wordpress on my other webserver (same download, same ftp program), and there it works. So it seems to be a problem on the first webserver I tried, maybe something concerning PHP config. But what could it be? Everything else runs fine on this server.

    Then reupload the files again.

    Of course you might check error logs to see if anything is reported.

    My provider support fixed the problem now. It was a PHP setting on the server which wordpress “did not like”.

    It would be interesting to know what setting that was. Thanks.

    i’m interested as well, was it a memory issue? Please do tell…

    I’m having the same issue – although it’s random
    trying to edit certain pages come up blank, when drafting a new post we get multiple saved drafts

    figured my issue out
    deactivated all plugins and reactivated one by one
    it was the wordpress stats plugin 🙁
    everything was fine after i deactivated it
