  • Localhost install, blank page after vB install.

    I installed vB 3.0.4 testboard on localhost (winXPpro), i used the XAMPP from http://www.apachefriends.org/en/ to install apache/php/mysql etc.

    Everything went fine, the server works fine, and i could easily install vB, all the way to step 13, i deleted the install.php, but im getting blank pages when trying to go to adminCP, also when trying to view the forums at htdocs/forums/index.php.



    I searched these forums for same problem, this thread...
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...ght=blank+page
    ...didnt help, i couldnt find anywhere using the XP search that contained the words "mysqllib.dll", i searched for words in all files.
    Also my "extension=php_mysql.dll" in php.ini was already uncommented.

    What could be the cause ?

    Make sure your pages are 100% and in ascii (except images)

      What do you mean by "100%" ?

      All files are there and uploaded as ascii (except images).

        The white pages are due to one of these causes:

        1. You did not upload the vB files correctly. Reupload the vB non-image files and make sure you upload these in ASCII format and that you overwrite the ones on the server. Make sure you upload the 3.0.4 Admin CP files to the admincp directory specified in your config.php file.

        2. You have extra space or lines in your config.php file. Make sure there is no whitespace or extra lines in config.php either before the <?php or after the ?>.

        3. You have added code to your header, headinclude or phpinclude templates that is no longer functional.

          I've read that copy/paste a dozen times when searching for a solution, and it's none of those 3 thnx though.

            Those are the causes of this problem that I'm aware of. It's possible you've uncovered a previously unknown cause.

              Open your php.ini file (should be in c:\windows\ on most installations). Find the line that looks like this:

              Code:
               display_errors = Off
              Change it to
              Code:
               display_errors = On
              Reload the vBulletin page and paste any errors shown in this thread.

                display_errors was already on, still getting blank page with the following source...

                Code:
                 
                <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
                <HTML><HEAD>
                <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
                <BODY></BODY></HTML>
