3.21 upgrade; public page nearly blank

Postby mlevy » Tue Apr 03, 2012 5:04 pm

I have completed an upgrade to 3.21. As far as I can tell from the Archon Administration page, the upgrade went perfectly fine. I can do all the things you'd expect in the Administrator including viewing existing users, table structure, the whole admin interface. I cannot see anything wrong with the administrator tools or the database. I did rename packages/core/install/install.php

However when I try to browse to http://mysubdomain.mydomain/mypath, I see only a white page with the text below -- same on Chrome, Firefox, IE, and viewing source doesn't show anything except what I'm showing below.

The totality of the actual HTML delivered is below. Note, there is nothing about the <div> tag, and the left angle bracking before /html> really is missing.

I'm running RHEL Linux, Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat), PHP 5.3.3. I think most of the basic requirements must have been met, or else I could not have successfully gone through all the install/upgrade processes. This must be fairly weird or else I would have seen similar messages before. I just upgraded from Archon 2.22. Any help apprciated!

I had not copied my custom theme to the new application. Attempting to view the home page of the application failed as described -- with no error message in the web log, so I did not know where to start. It was not until I tried to view a page from the administrator using the "Public View" link that I saw in the php error_log the "File does not exist:...." path "...../themes/mythemename..." error and figured out what the problem was. The administrator had not theme selected; using the administrator to select an existing theme (or my own theme copied over) fixed this issue.
