White page, someone could help me? | Forum

Transf Sep 23 '11
I did find an issue after my oxwall comunity setup and don't know hot to fix it.
If i am logged out and click Join link that I have in main menu first time it gives me a white page(site favicon and 'xd' on browser tab) with nothing on it and it works only if I click browser refresh button.

For me it's not a big issue as I know what to do but I can't really leave a message for every user to refresh the page whenever it's not showing. Any help apreciated.

Seems you have some issue with hosting performance. What is your hosting plan and how many users online do you have?
Transf Sep 26 '11
I have a shared hosting for now and only 3 users including me, I just started it. My hosting plan has:
  • upload_max_filesize=64M
  • memory_limit=96M
  • max_execution_time=60
  • max_input_time=300
  • post_max_size=64M
  • allow_url_fopen=off
  • register_globals=off
  • safe_mode=off
 ... only strage thing is Cron Jobs they let me use at 10 minutes.

Also check that that DEV_MODE if off in your ow_includes/config.php file. 
If it's Off, then it seems you have some problems with your hosting.

define('OW_DEV_MODE', false);
Should I make it true?

Try to make it true and browse your site. If you will see any errors on blank page, post it here. In other way, contact hosting
Transf Sep 28 '11
Done it and nothing. Checked that page's source and only shows <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><head><title>xd</title></head><body><script src="http://static.ak.connect.facebook.com/....4/XdCommReceiver.js" type="text/javascript"></script></body></html> .

Oh well i won't contact my hosting, already done it with no sending emails after enabling SMTP and nothing shiny. I'll probably stick with a small visible mesage for users to know they have to refresh when they see white page. In meantime i probably need money to buy at last a smal VPS.

p.s: Oxwall comunity rocks. Support is greater than i thought.

Blank pages can be caused by a number of things, and often occur just after installing, upgrading, or customizing your oxwall. Any time you touch a PHP file, you must be sure to not introduce syntax problems, and you need to be sure that it uploaded correctly.A PHP syntax error will very often result in a blank screen, or a partially-blank screen.
When this happens, there is often also an entry in the server's errorlog, which you can often view via your hosting control panel area. But, sometimes you can't view that log without requesting your hosting company to access it for you, for privacy reasons
