Blank page after controller class initialized - El Forum - 10-10-2008

[eluser]Daniel H[/eluser]
Hi all,

I'm having major problems getting my CI app to work with a host that I haven't used with CI before. Below is a dump of the log file created: a blank page is shown after the controller is initialized. Usually I fix this by setting logs and cache to 777 but obviously this hasn't fixed the issue.

Can anyone suggest anything else that might cause this problem?

Thanks,

Dan.

Are you autoloading the database library with bad settings in config/database.php? I just had this problem today, and fixing my database settings did the trick.

Yes you're right, but my 'production' settings work fine when used locally (i.e. connecting to the remote sql server). How frustrating - I can't see where the problem is. I wish CI gave a bit more debugging info about the db connection.

Thanks for the pointer.

Actually something is odd... the database lib is autoloaded, but the blank page only appears when accessing controllers that load a model and perform some sort of query. Is there any explanation for that?

Sorted it out.

I didn't hunt far enough to find where it was failing in my case, but it definitely seems like the appropriate thing would be to show the error. And I was working with CI 1.6.1 when I had this problem and solved. Afterward I upgraded to 1.6.3 and don't know if it would've had the same reaction on 1.6.3... that is to say, not sure if it's an unresolved bug or not.
