Support » Alpha/Beta/RC » [ WP.3.0 RC2-15204 ] Blank page

  • Hello,

    I have been working in a WP3 site with no problems, using a child theme of TwentyTen theme.

    I have just upgraded to 3.0 RC2-15204 and my template doesn’t work anymore. I know it is my custom template because I have deactivated everything and only get a blank page when I reactivate page again.

    Maybe an important change in template this time?

    Hope anybody can provide me with a suggestion in order to see again the website.

    Thank you!

  • Reverting to RC2 solved issue. Looking forward to test RC3.

    Love WP! 🙂

    This was my problem:

    Don’t use is_post_type, use is_singular.

    Hope it helps anybody.

    I just upgraded to RC3, and I am now having random “blank page” problems. I am also using a child theme of Twenty Ten. Is there an easy way to revert RC2?

    Wait. Now it’s not just blank page, but any part of WP shows Apache error messages. I’m able to get the server to serve up anything except a PHP page that is part of WP. Ugh.

    I get this from Apache on server:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80

    You can get RC2 here –

    Try the gold version though, just came out, see if that fixes it.

    Thanks! However, I am now certain my issue is not related to WP at all. I have studied the situation, and I think it is a server problem.

    The Linux server can serve me any file type except a PHP file, and even a simple PHP page that doesn’t do much of anything (and which is not related to WP at all) cannot be served.


    But… Did you say “Gold”? Does that mean version 3 is now public, not in RC status? Cool…

    I did say gold! 🙂 Thelonius is out 🙂

    And dude, GD’s pretty f’ed not loading any PHP 🙁 That whomps.

    I have full FTP access to my server, and I have uploaded the WP3 gold version, but GD is still showing me either blank pages or nothing at all. Sigh.

    Try the traditional? Rename your plugins folder to plugins-old (via FTP or SSH) and see if that fixes it. If so, make a new plugins folder and copy your plugins back, one at a time, testing between each copy.

    and even a simple PHP page that doesn’t do much of anything (and which is not related to WP at all) cannot be served.

    Then it;s a GD issue and you should ask their support.

    Thanks for your help folks!

    My first call to GoDaddy support got me a guy who claimed that renaming the php5.ini file would fix the problem. The file had only one command in it, the universal “cgi.fix_pathinfo = 1” command. Who can’t get along with that?

    I read somewhere that the command has to do with helping WP to do permalinks. I deleted the file, and still did not have success.

    I called GoDaddy back. My second call got me a guy who claimed having Fast CGI enabled (when it was not being used, he claimed) was causing a problem. I am not knowledgeable about CGI or Fast CGI, and I granted him permission to disable it. He said I have power in their online panel to enable or disable it myself, but I don’t know how to do that.

    As soon as he disabled it, the problem seemed to go away.

    Then my WP sites that were stored in subfolders on the hosting server seem to be able to do permalinks. However, I then upgraded an older WP blog (which was stored in the root folder of the hosting server) to 3.0. I tried to access pages that happen to require permalinks, and they would not function. I get 404 errors.

    I tried putting the php5.ini file back, but that seems to re-cause the serious problems I was trying to get fixed. I am now moving the root folder WP blog into a subfolder to see if I can get it to work. Argh.

    Sigh. 🙂

    Check the Functions.php file for blank lines. Make sure there are no blank lines outside the <?php ?> tags.
