tiki-login.php leads to blank page

posts: 25 United States

Oh what a long day it's been....

I did a CVS update on the wiki today and it's back and running 'sort of' atleast but now I cannot log into it.

I did see some folks posting similar messages but their questions all seemed to be leading on a different track.

Prior to the CVS update I did I could not even get into the wiki this morning.

You can see the site at:


I can login but I end up in a blank page. Where can I go to try to get some debug messages to trace? I have the error logging on and logging into a file but that's blank with no output...

I'd appreciate some hints on the next steps... Oh and I did find out that there have been problems with php-4-3-10 and the Zend engine. This recent update knocked my blog offline and I am still trying to get around that.

The wiki is making DB access as it's pulling data from the DB. also I verified that by doing a local mysql session as the wiki (under it's creds) and it was working.

Your contributions to this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi There,

Sounds very much to me like the PHP is running with memory_limit set to 8M and I think you'll need to increase that to about 16M

Hmmm. Nope. Just checked it. It's running at 24MB right now. I'll PM you the phpinfo page url.

Do the followings:

1- Go to tiki/template_c directory and delete the 2-character-folder regarding to your language setting (for e.g. en)

2- Go to tiki/temp/cache and delete whatever you see there

3- Go to tiki/modules/cache and delte everything but index.php and README

Now, try logging in to the system and hopefully this time you can get into it!

Thanks for the sugestions... Here are the results:

1. ok, killed the folder in templates_c for the language (en) BUT some very strange listings:

I fixed the error logging I had setup and now I see the following PHP error in my error logs:

[27-Dec-2004 10:08:42] PHP Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_SL in /mnt/bigd/www/tikiwiki/tiki-login.php on line 17

I also saw that register_globals was on in the version I have at the office. Also that version of PHP is waaaaaay old. Not too much of a concern since it us only used intranet wise but I am even more concerned about upgrading it now...

Hey man,
Those folders are all cache folders to TikiWiki, so don't try to understand the listings.
By the way, that was the only solution I can figure out.
Sorry, if it didn't work!
