  • Resolved virtualmjr


    I`m trying to install wordpress 2.7.1 on my linux dedicated server and after modifing the wp-config.php folowing the documentation the install.php pange shows up empty.
    I have created a database, is there something more i should do?

    Also, something very strange.Even if my display_errors is on in my php.ini i don’t get any errors in the browsers like i do in other site that i have. No errors in my httpd errors_log also.

    Also i want to say that i`ve tryied to install wordpress on my windows pc with LAMP installed and it worked without a problem/

    The site where i want to install wordpress is
    I hope someone has had this problem before.

  • If you make a simple index.html can you view that? (does your webserver work!)

    Yes it does work. I have made an index.html, you can view it:
    Also i have hundreds of sites on that server so i don’t think it`s a problem with my web server.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hmm, well, that’s a good sign that the server’s good. The WP install is pretty straight forward. Create the db, use the db login info to install WP/edit wp-config.php and you’re good to go.

    Delete the index.html to get the server to pull the index.php (there’s also a .htaccess directive you can add to specify the order of various index doc’s)

    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php

    It’s pushing install.php at me! Make it stop, haha!

    Odd. You have other sites up and running so PHP must be installed correctly… mime types must be ok …

    .htaccess nonsense? What’s in that file (for this site)?

    I don’t have any .htaccess for this site.
    Do i need one?

    Why don’t you try it and see if it fixes your issue?

    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    <Files .htaccess>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ /$1/ [R=301,L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    # Allow flash uploader to work
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off

    Thanks for your reply but still nothing.
    I just get the blank pages with no errors.


    If all the WP files are in place with the proper permissions etc then I would look at your server and your server configuration.

    Blank pages may stem from js conflicts or insufficient RAM etc…

    Thanks for your answer. You made my day 🙂
    I had to set zend.zel_compatibility_mode to Off in php.ini and now it works 🙂
