Hi @perezinn,

Usually when experiencing a blank page on a .php file, it means there is an issue with the code. In this case everything does seem okay with the page itself.

Having said that, most probably an PHP extension is missing. To confirm this, ssh to your Droplet

ssh root@DropletIp

Go to your DocumentRoot and execute the file like so

cd /path/to/website/
php info.php

The PHP command will actually execute the file just like you would from the Browser however it will provide you with the error as well. From there you should be able to see what is missing and install it.
