    all pages display blank? Link to this post

    Hi,

    I've been banging my head against my laptop screen for several hours now and would appreciate if anyone could help me diagnose the probem I'm having.

    All of a sudden, any content page I attempt to view returns a blank page. I have had the site running successfully for some time now here:

    http://www.kelf.co.nz/PHDEVV232/

    And it's all running fine locally.

    At the time he issue arose, i was modifying a template.ss file for the homepage but I've backed out of that change and other page types that I have not modified also display a blank page.

    I've tried ?flush=all, and /dev/build and flushed the browser cache with no luck.

    i am getting this in my server logs:

    [Thu Oct 29 22:37:46 2009] [error] [client 222.154.189.145] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/vhosts/kelf.co.nz/httpdocs/PHDEVV232/.htaccess

    My .htacccess file is this (and has not been changed recently):


    ### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
    <IfModule mod_dir.c>
    DirectorySlash Off
    </IfModule>

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /PHDEVV232

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif)|(\.jpg)|(\.png)|(\.css)|(\.js)|(\.php)|(\.ico)$

    RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    ### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

    # Disable directory browsing
    Options All -Indexes

    Running the site in dev mode returns this error.

    Re: all pages display blank? Link to this post

    Looks like you may have written something badly in your template. Make sure you leave a space after '<%' and before '%>'

    Are you using a custom theme or the default blackcandy one? Also what version of Silverstripe? Any additional modules?

    Re: all pages display blank? Link to this post

    thanks mo, I've checked for the right syntax for '<% ' and ' %>', and it looks fine in all my templates.

    I'm running a custom theme, but have switched back to blackcandy with the same blank page results, However locally my theme and blackcandy runs fine.

    I'm running the latest version of SS 2.3.3.

    I've no additional modules running, i did have a blog module running but removed that some time ago.

    I've attached a copy of my homepage.ss template as maybe someone will be able to spot something wrong in there.

    Still no luck fixing this issue, i will probably have to decommision everything, and start to rebuild the site up bit by bit to ientify the problem

    Re: all pages display blank? Link to this post

    Your syntax looks alright, but how about the included files. Also, I take it those includes exist, and have the correct name?

    Also, does your HomePage class extend Page (and likewise HomePage_Controller extend Page_Controller)? If not I believe that can cause errors.

    What I do is just use have Page.ss as my master template, then add HomePage.ss to my Layout folder. That way I don't have to worry about duplicating the majority of my html.

    Also, have you customized your HTACCESS? It looks different to the default. Are you on a shared hosting account or your own server? Your server errors look like it could be something to do with that?

    For reference, mine look like this:

    ### SILVERSTRIPE START ###
    <Files *.ss>
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 127.0.0.1
    </Files>

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(\.gif$)|(\.jpg$)|(\.png$)|(\.css$)|(\.js$)

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]
    </IfModule>
    ### SILVERSTRIPE END ###

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help, its a bit of an odd issue :s

    Well troubleshooting basics, if it works locally and doesn't work remotely that means it is a difference on your server.

    1. Confirm the two files are the same and the remote one is intact. Like diff-returns-nothing the same.
    2. Manually go into your ss cache directory and deleted the files, then flush and rebuild
    3. Restart apache.
    4. Continue inspecting your remote environment, it has to be something weird on there. Maybe there were recent apache/php upgrades?

    Re: all pages display blank? Link to this post

    hi, thanks everyone for the advice. i have removed everything from my server, re-uploaded all files, and still the same problem, so it does suggest an issue with my host.

    If anyone else is having this problem with 'openhost', please let me know. i noticed another thread here with someone having the same issue, but they abandoned SS for wordpress - (post - http://silverstripe.org/general-questions/show/270954#post27095)

    My host is on holiday for the weekend, so this may have to wait.

    When I run the site in dev mode, i am getting this error:

    [Warning] mb_ereg_replace() [function.mb-ereg-replace]: mbregex compile err: unmatched close parenthesis
    // i18n sprintf(_t(...),$argument) with entity only (no dots in namespace), meaning the current template filename will be added as a namespace
    493       $content = ereg_replace('<' . '% +sprintf\(_t\((\'([^\.\']*)\'|"([^\."]*)")(([^)]|\)[^ ]|\) +[^% ])*)\),\<\?= +([^\?]*) +\?\>) +%' . '>', '<?= sprintf(_t(\''. $path[1] . '.\\2\\3\'\\4),\\6) ?>', $content);

    I’m not getting this error locally, can anyone interpret why this line would be throwing an error, and if this warning is the cause of my blank page issues? I know ereg_replace is depreciated as of PHP V5.3, but running phpinfo here shows I’m using php V5.2 which should be fine.

    Anyone?

    A quick spot of googling said try this;

    mbstring.func_overload = No

    But I'm betting you can't change your host's settings, maybe ini_set()

    Re: all pages display blank? Link to this post

    thanks again to both of you.

    Dalesaurus, you were right, I needed to have this set:

    "mbstring.func_overload = 0"

    My host had changed this to 4 without notifying me.

    So in short, if anyone is seeing blank pages and is getting the error described above, make sure mbstring.func_overload is set to 0 (no)
