I have uploaded an SS site developed on my local server to a production server. The install process was successful. I then uploaded the relevant changed files and the theme that I developed and used file-based phpMyAdmin export - import (SQL, with DROP TABLES etc) to migrate the database.
All I get on the production site is a blank page - independent of what I try to view. The HTML returned is
"<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
I have checked forum entries dealing with site migration to the web server and made sure that i follow the process meticulously.
I really am lost (and frustrated).

I have now tested this by:
1. Installing a clean version of SS
2. Uploading only the extended classes into mysite/code
3. Building the DB
So far so good. Then I upload my new theme and change mysite/_config.php to point to that theme. Result: blank pages.
Now here's the weird part: I then overwrite my theme files and folders with the blackcandy theme and flush.
Still blank pages.
This is a complete showstopper for me and I have clients waiting. Any ideas (apart from trying a different CMS?)

I have realised that what is happening is that any attempt to set the theme to anything but blackcandy fails. Awesome.
So I installed my theme under themes/blackcandy. I don't get a blank page. This is an improvement. I also don't, however, get any reference to my Page.ss template - but rather a residual blackcandy template decimated by my CSS. I assume this is some sort of caching problem.
Is there something about my server that might be causing all this insanity? Bear in mind that I had this entire site working under WAMP - I'm simply trying to transfer.

PS: just to be certain that the problem didn't lie with the specifics of my theme I downloaded the latest theme from your 'Extensions' area and tried changing to that theme without success. Blank pages once again.

Reading through this post i realise that my tone may have descended into the derogatory. I didn't intend that - I was just getting frustrated. I'm sure the problem is just some minor issue w.r.t. the Linux hosting - any ideas where i could start looking?
