Support » Fixing WordPress » Page won’t load

  • I cannot get my website to load at all. I’ve had this problem off and on for days. A friend who has access was able to login and upgrade me to the latest version (whatever that is). It worked okay for a couple of days and now the problem is back.

    When I go to the site, it says it’s loaded, but I get a completely blank screen.

    I have two other WordPress sites on the same server, but I’ve not upgraded them.

    I do news and politics and desperately need to be on every day. Can some one help?

  • Your site displays for me.

    It does for me now as well. It seems to be an intermittent thing.

    I’ve been helping Ward out with this problem. I instituted the fix from which did correct the problem with comment posting.

    But still, when he posts an article, the site stops loading for a long period of time, during which the site will not load at all (no home page, no individual posts, no admin). I can load a test index file, so the server is responding, but WordPress is not. And as far as I can tell, it eventually comes back up on it’s own accord.

    wp-cache is not installed
    Askimet is the only installed plugin
    Ping status is closed on all posts
    No ping sites are listed
    Changing themes does not help (we installed a different theme last weekend)
    WP version is 2.1.2 (the latest available through Fantastico)

    Is there a fix similar to the one I made for the comments that might correct this?

    In just trying to go through the code line-by-line to try and track down the problem, I may have stumbled on a fix. In wp-blog-header.php I changed the line

    require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-config.php');



    and it immediately started loading again.

    Further update… the problem is still occurring. This latest time, I had to undo the above fix, then redo it, and that apparently “jiggled” it awake.

    This is the problem I am having with my admin pages. Nothing in the wp-admin or wp-includes directories will load. i get a blank page… no errors at all.

    So far the main index page seems to load fine, but wp-login.php redirects and loads a blank page. can’t register a new user. the only page in these directories I’ve been able to load is wp-mail.php which is not configured.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    TIA for any help.

    Are you behind an ISA firewall?
    The reason I say this is because I had the same issue and I have spent ages looking all over the net never mind these forums and I can’t find anyone with the exact same problem as me. I found that some users could access the the pages and some couldn’t

    since i upgraded to wp 2.3.3, then i have kinda same problem. so i here what i did:

    1. upgraded my old php 4.4.x to php 5.2.x
    2. set up my server the www in URL from Both and TO Remove “www.” if somebody goes to
    3. download this disable-canonical-redirects plugin

    read here about canonical-urls

    then every things seem to work fine now.
