  • only blank pages!

    i just moved my forum to a new host, database is moved over and works fine, everything is mirrored just the domain is not moved yet.

    altho, whenever i call a page that requires global.php all i get is a blank page, no sql error, no php error nothing just BLANK!
    i know that could be global.php because i coded my own news script which uses global.php as well and this page shows only blank too!

    so does anyone know whats going wrong ? the weird thing is the admin control panel works!! (no problems) i guess thats because it uses a seperate global.php?

    well any help is appreciated, thnx

    Have you taken a look at the sourcecode (if there is any) behind the blank page?

      well in iexplore the usual stuff (iexplore does that):
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
      <META content="text/html; charset=windows-1252" http-equiv=Content-Type></HEAD>
      in netscape "Blank document".
      just NOTHING

        Were you only experiencing this problem after you moved to a new host? Have you made any changes to any of the forum templates after you moved to the new host? The reason I ask is that if there is an HTML error in the templates somewhere which would only occur by editing, then Netscat will not render the code and you'll see a blank page.

          nope nothing changed but admin/config.php (to fit new db info).

            Hmm....this one is beyond my scope. Let's see if someone else can help you out. Good luck.

                cpriest can you tell me what you finally did to make your forum works ?

                Because I have the same problem, every script that use the global.php gives back blank pages (because include is at the top of the files)

                Your help would be greatly appreciated

                      cpriest, after going to your admin panel - did your forum work?

                      I have Xactly the same problem. All blanks. But after logging in to the admin panel everything works(!).

                      But if I clear my cookies and start over again... nothing works! (Except the admin panel and when I've been there everything works nicely. As mentioned above) Cookie stuff i u ask me. Seems like I have to visit the admin panel to get a cookie, but after that everything works. Anyone else experiencing this?

                      I have also posted a more detailed description of my own problem under this thread;

                        please cpriest be so kind to post for us all having this same problem how you fixed it.... because I have exactly the same problem without ever moving the server, I just had to install the forum into a sub-folder to make it work but I want to use it in root!

                          same problem. i'm not stupid enough to make the mistake of uploading config.php or index.php in binary- so please..
                          what in the world could be going on.

                          I have the exact duplicate copy of the forum files and database localy and it works perfect. I put it all on the server, with the exact database, and correct sql settings in config.php...

                          and i get a blank page on every page.

                          If I mess up the sql login variables for example, it gives me an expected error.

                          edit: sorry wrong forum. this is ancient
