Blank page when finishing the installation

I have finished the instalation but when I try to go to the main page I get a blank page. So I cannot log into the admin account.

What should I do ? I went through all steps of the installation without any errors ...


thanks a lot

Re: Blank page when finishing the installation

Hi,

If you have myPHPAdmin try to change in "XXXX_config" table, where XXXX is the value of XOOPS_DB_PREFIX in mainfile.php (default is "xoops") the record where conf_name='debug_mode', so that conf_value=YYYY where YYYY (Debug Mode) is:

0, for Off
1, for PHP Debug
2, for MySQL/Blocks Debug
3, for Smarty Template Debug

or execute SQL command:

UPDATE XXXX_config SET conf_value=YYYY WHERE conf_modid=AND conf_catid=AND conf_name='debug_mode'


and look for errors (inore notices). That may help to nail the problem...

Re: Blank page when finishing the installation

I just installed 2.0.18 rc and the same as you, got a white page. (fresh install no upgrade)
I too went through all the steps with no errors.

First I checked my folder permissions and they were all right, next I checked for the mainfile.php and it was not visible via ftp so I went to go to my cpanel and set mainfile.php at 444 -- from there. After the install apparently it was set at 000 -- there was no error that said I needed to reset my mainfile.php permissions as there had been in the past.

Hope this helps,
It corrected my white page problem.

Re: Blank page when finishing the installation

I seem to be going around in circles looking at this forum for answers. I seem to be getting the blank page too. I am a newbie to this. I have edited eery php file and removed any extra lines after the ?> I did come across one file that I suspect is corrupt "theme_blocks.php". The last lines showing on the file are:

"} else {
$xoopsLogger->addBlock( $xobject->getVar('name'), true, $bcachetime );
$block['content'] = $template->fetch( $tplName, $cacheid );
}
return $block;
}


}"

There is no ?> at the end of the file. I added the delimiter myself to try it. I looked in the zip file that I downloaded and the "fault" shows up there.

I have checked permissions, recreated the database several times and re-run the install.

A view of the source from the blanks page is:
