Blank page on administrator after download backup and restore

Postby DivtecSI » Sun May 20, 2018 12:02 am


I'm downloading my joomla sites from one server to migrate to another.
In all cases of Joomla 3.8.5 when I try to reactivate on localhost or another server, the administrator panel screen is blank .. In some cases when it is not empty and I can log in the administrative menu does not work.

Enabling debug in the configuration file gets logged in and the menu works.

What could be causing this?

Thanks a lot!

Did you download the folders and import the database separately or did you use Akeeba Backup?

Are the PHP versions different on the two servers?

In addition to debug, what about turning it off and setting error reporting to 'maximum' in the file configuration.php and then checking the PHP error log?
