Install issue : White Screen and [ ]




9 December 2008 at 9:09am Community Member, 1 Post

I'm having trouble for 3 days--installing on GoDaddy Deluxe Shared. After initial install screen--I receive a white screen and (? not exact there). No actual fail or success screen--just a white screen that hangs.

I then can go to the main domain to see the blue heading website success screen. But when I go to "CMS" admin--I receive the white screen and []

>>I have applied the 'fix' for SSL in sapphire; I've ammended the .htaccess as described on the 2 cents blog post and

>>At one point, after 5 attempts and deletes, I attempted to have GoDaddy do an auto install. The install yielded the same issue. goDaddy won't trouble-shoot this issue.

::::::   Odd difference: Go Daddy used :
      RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /
      RewriteRule .* /sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

::::::::    Also, GoDaddy's install provided an .htaccess with this line:
      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(^$)|(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)$

---> This install didn't work either, but I wondered if the{ (^$)| } might lend a clue to the trouble of the whitescreen of stop.

Many Thanks for reading and any direction here. Please refrain from telling me to get another hosting company--it's for a client.
