White screen of death

Hello everyone,

I'm having an issue with viewing a page that I create through Perch. I can edit the page, modify, and input content into regions. My problem is viewing the page.

I've read the community article regarding the Blank Page and attached my error log below from our server.

I see the page that was created using an FTP client, but the page is empty.

PHP Error Log

Your directory setup looks a little strange. I think you might be having problems because your Perch folder isn't in your root directory for the domain. Is /var/www/vhosts/ota.studio/clients.ota.studio/ the domain root?

I believe it is correct, as I can upload resources and edit regions on a static home page.

So Perch is living in /var/www/vhosts/ota.studio/clients.ota.studio/perch? Then maybe your runtime is the only problem. You're using a Runway runtime line, and it's pointing to /perch in a subdirectory. Try replacing:

<?php if (!defined('PERCH_RUNWAY')) include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/northwood-jobs/perch/runtime.php'); ?>

with:

<?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/perch/runtime.php'); ?>

If that doesn't work, make a blank .php file with the line <?php echo $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']; ?> inside, then access it to figure out where your root is.

Also...looking at your Perch diagnostics, it looks like Perch isn't in root:

PERCH_PATH: /var/www/vhosts/ota.studio/clients.ota.studio/northwood-jobs/perch

Perch is installed on a dev server, which hosts multiple staging sites. We've installed Perch in a subfolder multiple times with great success.

<?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/northwood-jobs/perch/runtime.php'); ?>

Is still doing the same thing. Blank page.

The response from the blank PHP document containing

<?php echo $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']; ?>

was

/var/www/vhosts/ota.studio/clients.ota.studio

What URL do you use to successfully access Perch admin?

The login path would be: http://clients.ota.studio/northwood-jobs/perch/

Hmm...well if Perch is capable of running in a subfolder, then I would think <?php include($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'].'/northwood-jobs/perch/runtime.php'); ?> should work. I've only ever run Perch from root, so I don't know. Maybe someone else will have a better idea.
