Install problem — script results in blank page.

  • I followed the detailed steps in the documentation for installation and also those for integrating with wordpress. After changing the config-sample to config.php and uploading the contents of the unzipped bb folder to a subdirectory (‘forums”) in the main word press directory I attempted to load the install.php script. I use IE7 and I tried both opening the file using the option on the File menu and also calling the file through the http protocol. In both cases all I get is a blank page. I don’t get any error messages, not even from my server. Thus, I have no clue what to look for or where to look to solve the problem. I’d appreciate some help in the detective work. Thanks.

  • Not sure what you mean by the option on the file menu, and calling the file through the http protocol is typing in the url to the file in IE7, right?

    There’s also nothing in your error logs, right?

    You did change things in config.php to reflect your databases etc?

    I believe someone once had a problem with files not being accessible because they were uploaded in binary not ascii mode or something strange like that.

    As well, having an .htaccess file in the root directory that is not configured right can also bring blank installs. What are you on, Win or Unix? Is it a localhost install?
