Does anyone, by any chance happen to know what is going on with these errors:

I'm trying to transfer this website: (SS v 2.4.5) to a different server (Westnet for those playing at home) but have stumbled on errors I've never seen before.. Is this the white screen of death?

Files & database are in place but I'm thinking this issue has something to do with the htaccess file or a particular PHP config..

Any assistance would be most appreciated!

Further, I found the server PHP test here: - does this tell us anything new?

It looks like your silverstripe-cache directory and/or the files in it are not writable. Did you possibly copy the silverstripe-cache directory along with the rest of your site? Try emptying the directory, make sure it is writable, en call up your site again.
