Recently, and on another occasion a while ago, my website was experiencing the White Screen of Death (WSOD).
According to http://drupal.forhumanists.org/book/white-screen-death you need to check for possible PHP errors that are occurring.
Error Reporting Code
To see the errors place the following into
index.php (located in the site root folder):
error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set('display_errors', TRUE); ini_set('display_startup_errors', TRUE);
My site then showed the following error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7642683 bytes) in /home4/rinetcom/public_html/glenneaton/includes/menu.inc on line 968
Increasing PHP Memory
- Download a copy of the file that is located at
- Make sure the file has the following line and that the memory allocation is correct.
- Save the file.
- Change the file permission level of the
settings.phpfile on your server from “444” to “777”; otherwise you will not be able to over-write it with the newly saved file you have on your computer.
- Once uploaded restore the
settings.phpfile permissions to 444, or 555.
Testing and Finishing
Retest your site and if desired remove the error reporting code entered into
