If PHP debug is not on, the system will suppress error messages coming from the PHP code.

This is the main reason for the dreaded "Blank Page" problem, which is caused by an error in the PHP code, so serious that the interpretation of the code can no longer continue. Enabling PHP debug will often result in these blank pages showing an error message instead.

See this PHP Debug Tutorial to fix this problem.

Existing website that ran before, or blank screen after new install?
Is this a production or a development server?

I've been away from XOOPS for quite a while and am admittedly rusty.

New install of 2.5.6.

Everything went perfectly until I log out and try to log back in and have the dreaded blank white screen. I created two users right after install as well with no problems.

I've tried to search the forum for a solution and attempted to turn debug mode on using PHPMyadmin within the database.

I'm very rusty with XOOPS and now trying to give my son some instruction.

I appreciate anyone's time to help me sort this.

What PHP are you using?

You should have at least 5.3.7 - that's the currently minimum recommended version.

For what its worth, Protector module has several settings for which blank screen can be the result. Would it make sense to rule out Protector as the root cause by temporarily disabling in the Protector modules preferences (it is the first config option)?

I am running PHP version 5.2.9. I've asked my host to update. Hopefully that does the trick.

As far as disabling protector, I can't get to the control panel to do that but will look around for the option in the database.

From the database set the isactive = 0 in the row where dirname = protector in the modules table.


* replace xoops with your table prefix:
update xoops_modules 
set 
    isactive 
0
where
    dirname 
'protector';

Site moved to a new server on my host with PHP 5.4.15 and it works.

Thanks.
