Blanc page on local host

Post by Tamkun » Thu Mar 01, 2018 10:38 am

Hi everyone!
I am a newbie in Joomla and just started studying. I wanted to develop my site on localhost, installed XAMPP and downloaded the latest version of Joomla (3.8.5), if I try to open starting page it doesn't work, a white screen shows up. I already resolved issues with port 80, but it still doesn't work. Could anyone help with this or give links to related topics? Thank you.

Do the XAMPP webapplications work ok?

Can you open the robots.txt from your Joomla site in your browser?
maybe something like: http://localhost/robots.txt

A blank screen indicates that there's a PHP error on the page while PHP error reporting is switched off.
Please turn on all error reporting:
In Joomla's configuration.php set Error Reporting level to Maximum,
and or use .htaccess to enable PHP error reporting.

Hi Peter,
thank you for reply, if tried to open dashboard it shown white screen as well. In configuration.php I changed error_reporting like this $registry->set('error_reporting' E-ALL), and completely don't know what can I do in htaccess.

I have already done all recommendations, Mozilla shows a blank page, Chrome responses HTTP Error:404.
