  • If the php_memory limit is set to low (2M etc.) then you may face this problem. You may try following solutions:

    [1] You can add following line in your .htaccess:

    php_value memory_limit 64M

    This will not work if suPHP is enabled on your server. If suPHP is enabled on your server then you will need to put php.ini in the root of your domain and modify the following line:

    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)

    [2] You can also raise PHP memory from wp-config.php file. Just add the following line after

    define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘64M’);

    Hi,
    I edit file .htaccess ; php.ini ; wp-config.php as same above but result is blank page. can someone help me ?
    my site http://www.trienvong.us

    I wait good news from someone !!!

    are you on a windows or linux server?

    I am having the same problem, and I have a post without response.
    However, I noticed the wp-blog-header.php coding is:

    <?php/** * Loads the WordPress environment and template. * * @package WordPress */
    if ( !isset($wp_did_header) )
    {
    	$wp_did_header = true;
    	require_once( dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-load.php' );
    	wp();
    	require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/template-loader.php' );
    }
    ?>

    Now wp-load.php is located in the same directory as wp-blog-header.php, but Template-loader.php is located in the wp-includes sub-directory. I am a novice at php coding, but it looks to me as a coding error in the wp-blog-header.php. ?

    i am a firsttime user of wordpress,
    i downloaded the wordpress zip folder, what about this wordpress 2.8.4.tar.gz.? my computer cannot open this extension
    I am trying to move wp folder to my new website hosted by netfirms,
    i have tried ZipDeploy, i am so stucked, i need help pls

    TomBonham
    require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/template-loader.php' );
    the WPINC tells wordpress to look in the includes folder

    Olusuyi
    click on the download link at the top of this page
    then on next page
    click the large blue button
    that will give you the zip file – that is all you need

    OK, thanks. BUT
    As I posted in “Installed, but index.php not generating body” – Why else word worpress generate an empty HTML?

    can anyone help me with this problem….I create a database, install all the files, and tries to install the word press and it only gives me a blank screen. Does anyone know why.

    I went back to my basic programming troubleshooting technique of making each program tell me what it is doing.
    I added comments to the beginning and end of “index php” those comments printed, stating the programming purpose of loading wp-blog-header.php .
    I added comments to the beginning and end of “wp-blog-header.php.” Those comments did not print!
    It would seem the problem is either the index.php is failing to load the wp-blog-header.php or there is a serious problem in wp-blog-headers.php.
    Which is it?

    Tom,
    I seriously doubt anything is wrong with the p-blog-headers.php.
    Millions of folks have used it without problems.
    Blank pages are php errors of some kind.
    Maybe add php error reporting to files and see what errors come up
    http://www.php.net/manual/en/function.error-reporting.php

    In other words, you are telling me: I am using WordPress as downloaded, it has no errors, and all pages will display?

    I am using WordPress as downloaded, it has no errors, and all pages will display?

    I’ve installed this version over 100 times without any file problems. I have had a blank page like you have here and there – like 4 times – but 2 of those were out of php memory issues (server was set to 8M) which were easily corrected. The other 2 was basically getting the host to install php5 so wordpress could use that instead of php4.

    Also I tried the script you referenced and got the message: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF in /usr/local/pem/vhosts/118806/webspace/httpdocs/PITS/TP/Blog/wp-blog-header.php on line 2
    line 2 is
    if ( !isset($wp_did_header) )

    line should look exactly like
    if ( !isset($wp_did_header) ) {
