Blank screen on install

  • Hi,

    Ive had wordpress MU installed and working for a long time. Installing budypress causes a blank screen. I already checked permission and searched for answers but cant find any. My error logs show nothing. I load the page over and over again and its simply blank and reports 0 errors.

    I noticed that if I remove the bp- files from mu-plugins folder then the site returns visible, just the files being in the folder cause everything to go blank.

    How do you see php errors here? changed error_reporting to E_ALL on wp-settings.php, didnt show any error.

    Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

    If I understand your trouble correctly, the solution to this is really simple, I know because I had this trouble at first too. If you have uploaded the entire buddypress folder to the mu-plugins folder, take everything out of it and put it directly into the mu-plugins folder. You want the actual plugin folders to be in the mu-plugins folder, not in another folder in that folder. Sorry if that sounds confusing, hope it helps.

    Hi thanks for the response, but the files and folders are already directly in the mu-plugins folder (not in the bussypress folder in the mu-plugins folder).

    like this:




    and folders:





    No, not resolved…

    The dreaded white screen of death is a symptom of a fatal error occurring in php code. If you can’t get at your error logs then we can’t help you. There has to be something in there.
