Support » Fixing WordPress » WSOD on rootpage only

    Hi WordPress Team!

    I’m currently running into a problem with one of my WordPress Installations that i cannot solve.

    I get a White Screen of Death on the Rootpage of my Website only. So every other page on the website is working just this one not. Also the admin dashboard is accessible without problems.

    I already restored the home directory and the mySQl databases via cpanel, this didn’t solved the problem.

    I deactivated all plugins and changed the theme. Still every page is working, but not the root page. Also all widgets are removed.

    I am suspecting that the Wp Super Cache is responsible for this, because this plugin made trouble in the past on a few of my websites but i am not sure.

    Also checked if there are empty lines in the config or setting and other .php but i found none.

    So can anybody help me?

    Have you checked your site’s error logs for clues? Perhaps you could turn debug on and enable error logging.

    hi esmi!

    thank you for your help.

    Yes i added the following to config.php

    error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set(‘display_errors’, 1);

    and set the Debug Mode to “true”.

    But no errors are shown.

    Anything in the site’s error logs? The page might be falling down too early for WP to log the error.

    I’d also suggest deleting everything except the wp-content folder, wp-config.php and .htaccess, then re-uploading the deleted items from a fresh download of WP – just in case you have a corrupt core file.


    thank you emsi!

    i just reuploaded the files from a fresh wordpress installation and everything works!

    Thank You.
