Your Joomla 5.2.1 version is very outdated.
Update to the latest version (2.5.28) before migrating the website.

A blank page = PHP error while PHP error reporting is off.
Please switch on error reporting to see the real error that you have to solve...

You can add the following code to .htaccess to override the server settings and show any PHP errors:

Code: Select all

php_flag display_errors on
php_value error_reporting -1
Your new server uses PHP 5.4.37, the old server PHP 5.2.9.
I suppose that your old Joomla version or 3rd party extensions do not work with 5.4.
Update your Joomla + 3rd party extensions.
