white screen after theme activation - again (1 post)

    Hi there, first post so go easy and all that.

    I have seen posts about this problem already but I seem unable to solve the problem. I can use any of the default themes without an issue, but anything that is uploaded results in a white screen if activated - I am even unable to preview themes uploaded to the system. I have tried downloading the zip to my local machine and uploading from there but still no luck.

    I have also tried with both firefox and IE8 with similar results and the problem is theme-independent.

    In order to get the uploading to work I did have to modify the wp-config.php file as per this post:


    otherwise I kept getting asked for an ftp login which never worked.

    Currently have wordpress 2.9.2 installed on ubuntu 10.04.2 server edition.

    Any help would be great
