Question

My site appears blank

My wordpress website was running fine until today that appears a blank page. I don’t see any error messages to guide me to find the problem.

The configuration of the Droplet is: 1 GB Memory / 30 GB Disk / NYC3 - Ubuntu Wordpress 4.7 on 16.04

The url is: http://104.131.27.249/

Could you please tell me how to find what’s going on?

Thanks in advance,

Hi there,

It looks like your server is responding with a 500 (Internal Server Error) which means that there is a problem either with the web server configuration or with the WordPress app which is preventing the page from being displayed. My experience with this issue is that it is typically a permissions problem. Can you look at your Apache error log and post the results here so that we can have some more information about the problem.

If you SSH into your server, the log files should be in /var/log/apache2/. Do you have experience with how to SSH into a server and look at the log files? If not, let me know and I can give you some instructions. Also, did you use a One-click app or install Wordpress manually?

Thanks!
