Blank index.php

Post by vaudevillian »

I'm not sure how to describe this so here it is:

I've been running phpbb2.0 for years, and as soon as RC1 came out, i upgraded. Followed all the upgrades and its been running fine.

I've been running 3.0 since it came out and done all the upgrades. It's been running perfectly until about 3 days ago. I clicked the forums link on my website and it just now goes to a blank index.php page.
http://www.gamingsanctum.com/forums/

So just wondering if anyone has a suggestion as to why this might happen? Or what I can do to correct it?

I've emailed my server owners and am still waiting for a reply, so I thought i'd ask here while i wait :-)


Thanks!

Can you check via ftp that all your files are still there to run the board??

Please let us know what comes up.

Also have you done any work on the site during this time just previously to it going down??

If not then check with your webhost that they didn't have any downtime or issues during this time or if there are any issues still being fixed possibly in regards to your site??

If you have done any changes to your site recently than this is most likely a problem caused by that!

Hey now this looks familiar.

My dev site did the same thing about a week ago.
I went there the other day to a blank page. No mods installed.
It has only been installed maybe a month. 3.0.1 install
Its just a style demo site for my styles.

I left it up so I can pick through it and try and figure out what did it.
So far it looks like all files are there and in tact.

Check your config.php

For what ever reason mine was changed somehow
The $dbms
was $dbms = 'mysqli';
instead of $dbms = 'mysql';

I changed it and now it is loading

okay so i checked the config.php and everything looked okay. I went ahead and uncommented ( // )
the debug option and now this error comes up when i try to view the page.
[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /common.php on line 210: Undefined variable: dbport
I'm assuming this can hopefully help solve the issue?

And just to double check here is my config.php with important things "*" out.

Code: Select all

<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql'; //database type it may not be mysql
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbname = '******************';
$dbuser = '*************************';
$dbpasswd = '************************';

$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
@define('DEBUG', true);
@define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);

Your missing a line

$dbport = '';

which can stay blank

Code: Select all

<?php
// phpBB 3.0.x auto-generated configuration file
// Do not change anything in this file!
$dbms = 'mysql';
$dbhost = 'localhost';
$dbport = '';
$dbname = '********';
$dbuser = '********';
$dbpasswd = '********';
$table_prefix = 'phpbb_';
$acm_type = 'file';
$load_extensions = '';

@define('PHPBB_INSTALLED', true);
 @define('DEBUG', true);
 @define('DEBUG_EXTRA', true);
?>
