Re: White Screen of Death




The URL where I’m testing the BP is http:// it is shared hosting where each subdomain that belongs to my account looks like root. All root files must be uploaded into \htdocs folder that pretends to be root.

Once installed, only the core Blog is fully available. Users (user1, user2) have created their blog(s). Posts are accessible by Site Wide Activity/Wires but no permalinks expect the main blog are accessible. Thus no user nor admin personal blogs (comments) aren’t accessible.

My hosting program allows the .htaccess. The links to the missing elements seems to be OK. It properly generates addresses like but it is empty.

The /wp-content/blogs.dir contains strange sub-folder structure

/wp-content/blogs.dir/1/files/avatars/2(4) where two and four is a Id of users that have

uploaded their avatar. Gods know what does it mean the 1 in the root.

For testing purposes I have created your account (Id 4) JDPaul/password. I just wanted to test the BP abbility to access/write the folder. Avatar was uploaded.

My conclusion:

1) BP is talsk to MySql

2) tld/blog works as expected

3) All site.tld/users links + site.tld/groups seems to be fine

4) At least part of the BP code can write the blogs.dir folder

5) For some reason site others blog permalinks site.tld/user1, site.tld/user2, site.tld/personal do not work.
