Blank Page on Installation

Postby jhcorsair » Tue Oct 30, 2012 1:05 am

I have uploaded all of the files inside the Joomla folder per the instructions http://docs.joomla.org/Installing_Joomla ! and navigated to the folder with my browser: http://mysite.org/j2.5/ however, I get a blank page.

Help! :(

Did you upload the the folder containing Joomla as well ?

What happens if you put
www.yoursite,com
or
www.yoursite.index.php

If no avail please run the Forum Post Assistant from the root folder of your Joomla viewtopic.php?f=621&t=582860

It's not showing the Joomla folders ... either you have your folders mixed up or you have not pasted all the output.

What happens if you type www.robots.txt ?

What is your url ? ... N.B. make sure you have deleted the FPA script !!!

Not sure what the issue was ......
Deleted FPA script, installed joomla package using host scripts.
Seems to be working ok.

Thanks!

You probably uploaded the folder that contained the Joomla files so Joomla was in a sub directory not in the root.
