    Blank pages thrown out by PHP are often error conditions when error messages are suppressed.

    Create a new file and add the following to it
    Code:
    <?php
    phpinfo();
    ?>
    If that works, modify your blacnk page producing code to have
    Code:
    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    ini_set('display_errors', 1);
    among the first thing it does. If this shows your errors, you can set the appropriate settings in php.ini and restart apache.

    Unless set up differently error_log and access_log can usually be found under one of /var/log, /var/log/apache2, /var/log/httpd depending on the distro
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?
