I had a problem with just the Groups tab giving either a WSOD or a 404 (depending on whether I had put a page called/slugged ‘groups’ which was one recommended fix)
Spent hours banging my head against the wall, checking error logs etc, with the inestimable burtadsit’s help, but have finally fixed through uploading everything from the latest trunk.
Had a week’s rest from bp, ftped the latest trunk files across, and it’s working fine now.
Just having a quick peek at the access logs and AWSTATS on the webhost. The access logs aren’t particularly helpful as I can set the GET command for /groups, and the 404 being returned, but nothing else useful.
The only thing that leaps out on the webserver’s awstats analyser is that all the 404s being returned for /groups are down as being referred from http://www.mydomain.com/blogs and I’m not sure why /blogs as the calls are being from many other pages and not just the /blogs page.
not necessarily any help, but I’m using the same host as you, and I’m trying to sort out a 404/BlankScreenof Death on my Groups page as per long thread on the forum, and it’s not clear what’s happening as it working fine on my localhost on windoze 2000 and it’s a bogstandard install.
I meant that I had googled the 404 error text, and the hits for blank html with that code tended to be relating to PHP. Also further googling suggested a similar White Screen of Death for wpmu, with various fixes (one was removing trailing blank spaces after the final > of a php page).
I’m at the office now, going to show people here the work done to date. Next chance I get I’ll prolly reboot the server, reload files, and finally re-install, but that may not be until Thursday.
Thanks for the help. (nb there’s a guy posting with problems on his site (iqcuties) who runs on the same webhost as me, who is having problems. just wonder if there is some server config or something not right.
follow the ‘about’ tab at the top of this page and have a read of that page.
thanks for all your help so far. it is much appreciated.
that 404 text is showing up on google as perhaps being something to do with PHP.
I’ve got nothing in that didn’t come with the initial wpmu install. Having installed that I just set up a couple of users, and a couple of blogs, then proceeded to install bp.
I’ve now looked at the access log, but all that is listing is the gif jps css and js requests, as opposed to the pages themselves. Is this normal?
But nothing about the groups is working – other than the tab in wpadmin, wherever there is a call to a group function, the blank page comes up. eg on the main tabs, on the admin bar, if you’re on your own profiel page and choose groups etc…
the main error log I’m seeing from CPanel is only showing repeated calls for a background.gif image in one of the themes, which I can’t imagine can be related.
just going to try and get a look at the access log..
I created the blank pages with slugs as per previous message in wp-admin. I see now that if I view page in wp-admin then the pages with slugs mydomain.com/members and mydomain.com/blogs works fine, but mydomain.com/groups again shows blank
@burtadsit : just wondering if you have any more thoughts on this? Does the fact that the other areas (news/members/blogs/) are all working fine rule out certain things (eg that it can’t be .htaccess)?
What would you recommend as a next step? Uploading all the files again?
Slightly improved at present – instead of a 404, I’m now getting presented with a blank page whose html consists of
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN”>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″></HEAD>
no, I haven’t been near .htaccess at all.
all the other tabs are working fine. The only thing that went different on this install on the live server compared to the local server was that on the live server I had made a change to a home.php file just by way of experimentation when it was just running wpmu, which meant that when i installed bp it didn’t at first display the bp theme properly. But returning the home.php file to its original state fixed that.
hi – back from doing some of hat ‘socialising’ stuff
I’ve been into wp-admin and created 3x pages and changed the slugs as per the suggestion, but this hasn’t improved matters.
No – not even getting that.
From the home page, choosing the horizontal tab link for Groups simply presents a 404 not found, as does My Account-Groups.
(About to go offline for a few hours…)
I’m wanting to log in as a number of users to create dummy profile. If I use the site admin > users > add users it creates a password for the user but emails it. So without getting a hold of the email I can’t log in as them. (Or am I missing something?)
