HELP! All I see is a blank page

Permalink
I installed concrete5 through my Hostmonster account and created the concrete5 folder as a subfolder in my public_html folder. I deleted the old site and tried to follow the move instructions to the best of my ability (novice) and now all I get is a blank screen if i go direct to the site gladiatorsports.us.

If I go to gladiatorsports.us/concrete5 I see the site. How do I get it to work just using the domain name.

Thanks in advance

Well to be honest your first mistake was using hostmonsters c5 install :P

But that usually causes other problems. What you'll need to do is copy all of your files in the concrete5 directory to the public_html (you'll first want to backup everything).

Then you'll have to edit the site.php file and remove the 'concrete5' directory.

Hope that helps.

make sure you don't have a blank line at the end of the config/site.php file

Well I think I screwed the whole thing up, i can't even log back into the site i have no idea what to put in the site.php or index.php file to get the site live or to log back in.

I did what themeguru said and copied everything to public-html and its been down hill skiing ever since.

Just ready to re-install and try again

I'm having the same problem. Well sort of.
I worked on my computer, on a XAMPP installation, and when I moved it on my online server all it shows is a blank page.
- there is no blank line at the end of the config/site.php file.
- i disabled and cleared the cache before upload
- i disabled pretty url-s
- i exported my database and imported it on my online server through phpMyAdmin

So if you have any ideas I'm ready to test it.

OK, I managed to solve my problem. I had all my table names lowercase while C5 expects them to be camelCased.
See

for more information.

As for your problem, after you put everything in public_html you have to edit the public_html/config/site.php file to match your new configuration. Probably all you have to change is your DIR_REL to something like this
define('DIR_REL', '/');
