    Blank page problem

    If you visit www.webdevforums.com you'll see that only a blank page is loaded. Now, my forums are supposed to show but I don't know why they're not. I can access the admin section fine and all pages load fine.

    I only got my FTP access back today and have uploaded all the neccessary files for vbulletin and have tried adding
    Code:
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php3 index.php
    
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
    AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
    to the .htaccess file and uploaded it to the root folder.

    Has anyone got any ideas on what else I can try to rectify this?

    Did you get this solved? I now see a "sorry that we're down" page.

    No, I only put that up to inform others that the site will be back up soon. I have removed that page now.

    Well, let's look at this.

    We're not getting a 404 so the web server sees SOMETHING there.

    What is the page extension for your index page?

    What do you possibly have more than one page index file in the htdocs directory?

    Try saving your real htaccess file somewhere else, then delete the contents and upload a blank one.

    Do you have direct access to the Apache httpd.conf file?

    That's all I can think of right now.

    I'm stumped, what I can't understand is that the admin area works fine and it uses .php file extentions also, but the main index.php file isn't being parsed properly.

    I tried a phpinfo.php3 file and that brought up the save dialog box.

    I also tried turning off the forums and back on to no avail.

    Got it sorted. It was down to having some code in the phpinclude template for phpAdsNew that was causing it. I removed it and all is fine

    All I need now is to setup phpAdsNew again and re-edit the template for it.
