How to Set up a Remote Testing Environment ?

Hi - my site is almost done. Now I want to put all my existing code up on a server for remote testing. However, I want it in a separate folder, not available to the public as there is an existing old site still installed. So .. I created a separate folder 'CLFarms' inside /public/ and uploaded all my files off my C drive.

I made no further changes.

I am now getting 3 errors:

Message: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /services9/webpages/g/r/organiclife.com/public/CLFarms/index.php:2)

Message: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cookie - headers already sent by (output started at /services9/webpages/g/r/organiclife.com/public/CLFarms/index.php:2)

Message: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /services9/webpages/g/r/organiclife.com/public/CLFarms/index.php:2)

Needless to say my site does not display anything.

I tried changing the config file to see if that would help - I made the following changes to no effect:

$config['base_url'] = 'http://organiclife.com/public/CLFarms/';

I have tried using the config with the /public/ in and out of the address - it made not difference.

Can anybody tell me where I am going wrong ??

Many Many thanks !

Ok - Many Thanks ... I realised my mistake adn so I fixed all the output errors by removing all the white space so I'm not getting any messages anymore.

However, I'm still getting a white screen of nothing ...

any ideas where I should look ?

Many Thanks

Do You have error reporting enabled ?

// in Your index.php

Thanks Tomcode - I had my error reporting set to E_ALL . I changed it to -1 to no effect, so I put it back.

I have tried putting up a 'Hello Sailor' test page onto the folder and it worked fine in the browser.

However when I try to go to :


I just get a plain empty white screen

any advice ??

Many many thanks !

Your link does not work for me, is redirected to http://nameteam.com

error_reporting: -1 gives You all errors, see error_reporting(), the examples

You can use CodeIgniter's log, maybe it shows You something, see config/config.php

Check Your application files for other white space issues, do You use somewhere

do an echo in Your default controller, maybe You get an output


Hi TomCode, No disrespect, but I obscured the name of my site - so it will resolve to nameteam.

I don't have header problems any more .. when I say that I have a screen of white I mean, I get nothing in it, like the file is empty. Of course it is not. My test file "Hello Sailor" does run php so I know that PHP is working.

There has to be something in the codeigniter config or index which is not allowing the site to work.

Any advice is very welcome -

Vielen Dank aus Kanada !


Did You check what I proposed You ?

You may also install a vanilla CodeIgniter and see whether that runs on the server. I'm pretty sure it's either :

- a whitespace issue
- some PHP error
- maybe a file couldn't be loaded

Usually You get either a PHP error or a CodeIgniter error message, but sometimes (rarely, though) CodeIgniter gives a white screen.

Is Your server a Windows server ? I know only installations under Apache.

Many Thanks for all your advice. I checked the error logs and it was clear that I had not properly set up the DB connection, Once corrected - no more white screen. However, now I have a different Header problem .. that is in a separate post !
