Hey friend,

If you’re getting blank pages, you may want to enable error reporting in PHP and use that to debug. The key is to get the underlying errors exposed by any means necessary, only then can you begin to troubleshoot from an informed perspective.

If it helps any, we have a tutorial for deploying laravel apps with Nginx and MySQL. It may make a decent reference at least: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-deploy-a-laravel-application-with-nginx-on-ubuntu-16-04
