wp-admin screen blank after login
I know there is another thread with a similar problem, but I think that they are different based on what worked for them and not for me, so I've started a new thread. I'm using wp 2.86 and ata 3.4.4. When I login it takes me to a blank wp-admin page. I can get past it by going to /wp-admin/post.php or edit.php or pretty much any other admin page from the white page, but naturally I'd like to get it sorted in case its a symptom of another problem, and also to make usage easier for other users. It's not a browser issue, i'm pretty sure, since I've tried a couple and it does the same thing, and i've got plenty of php memory (64). Here's the site. Any advice?

Many thanks

if you can get into the back end, check the settings at dashboard->settings->general and look at the 'WordPress address (URL)' and the 'Blog address (URL)' options - make sure they are correct

should they be anything other than http://threeguysonebook.com ?

juggledad Dec 9, 2009 12:15 PM

does you dns point to the folder wordpress is installed in? if so, then yes they should be the same

jasonchamb Dec 9, 2009 12:52 PM

yes, so that's not the issue.

well since using .../wp-admin/index.php brings you right to the logon but using ../wp-admin hangs, I'd suspect that this has something to do with htaccess

jasonchamb Dec 9, 2009 01:14 PM

ok. I haven't edited it for any reason. Any thoughts?

juggledad Dec 9, 2009 01:38 PM

to see if wp-admin/index.php is actually running, edit it and on line 2 put in
HTML Code:

echo '<strong>debug: in index.php.</strong>';
and see what shows up. this will tell you if this module runs.

jasonchamb Dec 9, 2009 02:13 PM

I've put that in...how do I know if the module is running? Everything is the same, as far as I can tell.

jasonchamb Dec 9, 2009 02:15 PM

I have this message:

debug: in index.php.
Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home/jasonch2/public_html/threeguysonebook.com/wp-admin/index.php:2) in /home/jasonch2/public_html/threeguysonebook.com/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-automatic-upgrade/wordpress-automatic-upgrade.php on line 121

Hmm teh header already sent message usually means there are some non blank characters in one of our modules at the end.

If this was me, I would down load a new copy of Wordpress to my computer, and delete teh wp-content forler from it. Then I would connect to the server via FTP and delete everything but the wp-config.php and the wp-content directory. Next, I'd FTP up the new copy of wordpress and see what that does.

Thanks JD. Let me get this straight, so I don't screw it up:
from the new WP, delete the wp-content folder
from the old server version delete everything except wp-config and wp-content
upload the new one.
Is that it? I'll try it tonight. I'll assume I should backup everything first, of course.

juggledad Dec 9, 2009 05:08 PM

you've got it. The only things on the site you need to keep is the wp-config.php because you have that customized for yout database (name, userid, password) and there isn't one shipped with wordpress, just a wp-config-sample.php and the wp-content folder because that has your plugins, themes, uploads. Both of these are things you want to back up along with your database - but this won't effect your database at all - you just should back it up on a perodic basis.

jasonchamb Dec 9, 2009 05:20 PM

OK, thanks. I'll try it tonight or early tomorrow when traffic should be down, just in case. I do backup weekly, so I'm pretty secure.
