"Control Panels" page is blank after upgrade

posts: 10

I just upgraded a Tiki wiki from version 3.0 to 15.5 (!!!). Amazingly, to me anyway, it seemed to go incredibly smoothly.

That is, until I wanted to set some of the Admin settings.

I do see, in Menu > Settings, a list of pages, almost all of which I CAN access. BUT, when I click on "Control Panels," which is equivalent to:


all I get is a completely blank page.

Any idea what could be causing this and what the fix might be?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jim,
try to check the server logs for errors or enable PHP error reporting on tiki-admin.php?page=general

Thanks, luciash d' being!

I had some other issues I wanted to address as well (e.g., the mbstring PHP extension was not enabled on that server). As part of that, I actually changed hosting companies and therefore servers.

I then did the migration/upgrade from scratch again, this time with mbstring enabled, and everything worked fine. I don't know if my original problem was mbstring, or something else, but in case my problem is now solved (on another server).
