    Hi:

    Here is the information required:

    1. Which version of WPMU are you running?

    The 2.8.4a version of WordPress MU

    2. Did you install WPMU as a directory or subdomain install?

    I installed it in my public_html and blogs as sub-directory

    3. If a directory install, is it in root or in a subdirectory?

    In public_html

    4. Did you upgraded from a previous version of WPMU? If so, from which version?

    No it was a first time install

    5. Was WPMU functioning properly before installing/upgrading BuddyPress?

    No I installed both one after the other. After both were installed, then started testing.

    6. Which version of BuddyPress (BP) are you running?

    BuddyPress 1.1.1 installed

    7. Did you upgraded from a previous version of BP? If so, from which version?

    No it is a first time install

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?

    Yes several of them.

    9. Are you using the standard BuddyPress themes or customized themes?

    First downloaded Facebuddy theme from buddydress but it gave an error so I installed

    and activated the default buddypress theme.

    10. Have you modified the core files in any way?

    No customization

    11. Do you have any custom functions in bp-custom.php?

    No did not customize it

    12. If running bbPress, which version?

    I have not installed bbpress but I am interested to install bbpress. Do I need to install

    it seperately ?

    13. Please provide a list of any errors in your server’s log files.

    blank pages when someone clicks on create a blog, unable to set themes and control

    admin area for created blogs.

    When trying to update or upload plugins, it freezes up.

    When I was testing your demo sites at http://vdurgaprasad.testbp.org/ I clicked on register, even that showed me a blank page. Also when I was testing to create a blog on that demo site it still gave me a blank page.

    When I activate buddypress default theme it gives me blank page when clicked on create new blog but on wordpress default theme it does not show blank page.

    Obviously there are a few big issues with your install causing all of these problems.

    8. Do you have any plugins other than BuddyPress installed and activated?
    Yes several of them.

    Deactivate all plugins other than BuddyPress. Use the default theme that comes with BuddyPress 1.1.1. Do you still get these white screen problems?

    Do you get anything in your webserver error log? A white screen error can be caused by lots of things. Finally, which company provides your hosting?

    A few things to consider when seeing….(white screen)

    First, if you are creating sub domains for each individual blog make sure the blogs are being confirmed through the submitted email during registration. you will see a white screen for every blog not confirmed.

    Second, make sure all permissions are enabled in your dashboard, this too causes white screens for different blogs.

    Third, make sure you deleted the bp themes in from the /mu-content/ root and that they are installed through the /mu-plugins/ not /plugins/

    Fourth, a lot bp plugins take some sort of config to work correctly, sucks I know but true so I would definitely follow DJ Puals advice and deactivate all plugins while you try my suggestions.

    You might be thinking that it’s a lot more difficult than that but Sometimes it’s as simple as that.

    First, if you are creating sub domains for each individual blog make sure the blogs are being confirmed through the submitted email during registration. you will see a white screen for every blog not confirmed.

    If you are setting up WPMU with subdomain blogs then you have to add a wildcard DNS record on your server. If you do not, you’ll have significant issues. This is detailed in the readme.txt file that comes with the WPMU install package.

    This is why we ask everyone having issues with BP if they fully tested WPMU and made sure it was functioning properly before installing ANY plugins–including BuddyPress. Fully testing does not mean giving it a cursory once over. It means fully testing all the major functions. This should take some time. The most obvious first function to test is the creation of additional blogs.

    wolfapache9516, I will like to know how you resolve this. I see that your buddypress theme is fine now.

    Also, a kind reminder about the Domain Policy.
