30 sec Installation

30 sec and the installation is completed. 30 hours troubleshooing - and the result is an empty page … debian, apache, php renewed, no log - nothing.

An empty white page is indicative of a PHP error. By default PHP does not display errors so you must turn them on it check the error logs to see what is causing the error.


ok … turned on - no error, normal phpinfo is working properly. Thanks for help, but no success.

Hi @andi_alreadyregistered,

I recently experienced the same, when setting up Grav in Docker. Your white-screen-of-death has mostly like to do with permission issues. Did you tried https://learn.getgrav.org/troubleshooting/permissions ? If not you can follow the instructions. You can of course manually check, whether the cache and images folder have the right user permissions (those of your web-server).

A simple

rm -rf cache
chown -R www-data:www-data cache
rm -rf images
chown -R www-data:www-data images

should be enough. If not you may issue a bin/gpm -f update from the command line, too. Those are the steps I needed to let Grav run again.

Hi there and thanks for help! It’s my own fault - in my script for permissions I’ve forgotten chown!

regards andi
