I thought this was going to be easy. My first mistake. I was
throwing up a wamp server up on an old w2k box we had sitting around
to do some testing and development.

I have installed Apache/2.2.4 (Win32) PHP/5.2.1.

I have tested apache and is delivering html just fine both on
localhost and externally.
When I tested php using phpinfo it works fine.

When I installed a know good application (code came from production)
the pages all come up blank. At first I thought that short names was
turned off and giving me the problem so I turned them on. That had
no effect. httpd looks fine. I turned on errors in PHP nothing makes
it to the error file when I call the page.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance

What do you see when you look at the page source? Do plain html (no
PHP) pages come up?

what does known good mean? in production on a wamp box of same php/
apache/mysql version after same install proceedure?
when you say "blank" do you mean no headers, or just no response body.
have you checked the paths in the config?

its obviously a config issue but the issue can easily be with the app.

The configs look okay. I let the php installer do the configuration,
that was probably my first mistake.

Yes plain html shows up just fine. the phpinfo test works just fine.
Maybe I should try another php app to see if that is the issue

Do you mean short_open_tags? (<? instead of <?php)
That had
no effect. httpd looks fine. I turned on errors in PHP nothing makes
it to the error file when I call the page.
And if you just display the errors instead or logging them
(error_reporting(E_ALL);ini_set('display_errors',t rue);)?

And what is the PHP version of the production site? And since you have a
working phpinfo(), any noticabale differences between that one and the
one in production?

And as stated before, a 'blank page' can mean different things. DO you
get any headers, and if so, which ones?

its obviously a config issue but the issue can easily be with the app.
my idea was the app config rather than the httpd.conf/php.ini config -
I'm sorry I should've made that clear.
a blank screen could be simply that the initial conf doesnt load, so
no functions included etc... you might not get any errors if the conf
immediately turns them off, nothing to output. does your app need
rewrites, auto_prepend etc...

The code was brought over from a production server that is working
fine. I agree it has to be a config issue. The pages are blank, all
white, nothing else
