[resolved] What do blank white pages mean? (4 posts)

    Yesterday morning, I posted a topic seeking help for the problem (blank white pages) I was having with my blog.

    Late yesterday afternoon I thought I had solved the problem by upgrading from my cPanel. Incidentally, I had upgraded via my Admin panel soon after 2.6 was released. So I'm not sure why it was even an option in my cPanel.

    Once I got my blog up and running, I re-uploaded the theme (Mandigo, a commonly used theme) and a few plugins. Sometime in the middle of the night, the same thing happened... my entire blog is nothing but blank white pages again.

    I haven't found much help regarding the "blank white page" problem. Instead, there are many unanswered posts by users experiencing this problem.

    So what exactly does it mean when an entire blog, including the admin panel, is nothing but blank white pages? Why would my blog appear to be working for about 5 hours and then "transform" itself into blank white pages?

    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a PHP error somewhere. One of the files, plugins, or something has a whitespace in it.

    I would try this, keep in mind it's somewhat drastic:

    1) put all your wordpress files and everything into a folder in the root and call it wordpress or something.

    2) now that your root directory is relatively blank, other than for the folder wordpress and a few other files like the .htaccess, make a html file and see if that will display.

    3) If it does, try making a php file and see if it displays. It it does, then something is wrong with the wordpress install.

    Thank you Peiqinglong!

    I can display an html file and a php file.

    I'll try another install.

    I ended up removing my current WordPress install and performed a fresh install.
