Can access administration but catalog is blank?

Hi there,

 

Just installed the shop - just following the procedure - and I can access the backend/administration area, but when I try viewing the shop frontend, there's just a blank page? Does the shop have to be set online somewhere?

 

The page is here: www.tb2.dk/catalog

check to see if your have ERRORS turned on. If there is an error, it might not show if the option is turned off. Then you can go from there.

 

If they ARE turned on, then i would open your index.php and see if there are any blank spaces or lines after the last closing<?php tag. That is USUALLY the cause..

Thanks for the fast reply!

 

There was one blank line after the closing php tag, but that didn't do the trick. Where do I turn on "Errors"?

There are errors in code some where.

 

SO You need to use force error code and display error.

 

Google (I do not have offhand code for this) display force error in php.

Tried Google'ing it, and found this piece of code, which I inserted in the index.php, but still just a blank page:

< ?ini_set('display_errors','1');

ini_set('display_startup_errors','1');

error_reporting (E_ALL);?>

 

I think I'll try reinstalling.

actually the code should be in the APPLICATION_TOP.php, not index

 

error_reporting(E_ALL & E_NOTICE );

ini_set('display_errors','1');

Ok, thanks!

 

Reinstalled twice - first time there was an "1146"-error, I think it was, and the second time it worked ... now I only get this error:

Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: xxx/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.

 

Where do you set the right user permissions? Haven't searched the forum for this yet ...

Look for the file using your ftp program and you can set the permissions usually by right clicking the file

actually, if you have cpanel on your host, you can also set permissions through there. THAT is usually where i do it. i dont mess with my FTP too much. I cant rememebr WHAT the configure file SHOULD be, but i believe it is 644
