Support » Installing WordPress » Site is just a white page after a manual install

  • I manually installed 3.1.2 and now I can’t get into wp-admin and the site is just a white page (I can get in to wp-login though). I have deactivated the plugins and changed the file names, so they shouldn’t be a problem. I have checked wp-config.php and it looks good. I tried reverting to the Twenty-Ten theme and it still didn’t work. I am completely out of ideas. Help!

  • First check if you do not have have any blank space before <?php in wp-config.php if there is none then try and add this code in next line

    error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set('display_errors', 1);

    In addition, add the following code above /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */ :

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true);
    See what error you get.

    I did exactly what you suggested and I got no error messages at all, still just a white page. I tried checking in Chrome, Firefox 4 and Safari, after clearing the cache.

    Any other thoughts?

    Try:
    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme by renaming all other theme folders in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    Done. Still same problem.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders from a fresh download of WordPress.
