WordPress 2.7 – Blank Page

Problem: I backed up the database and website files for a particular WordPress 2.7 installation and moved it over to another computer. When I run the site on the new computer, all I got is a blank page.

Solution: This was the solution that worked for me. Here it is in a nutshell:

  1. Rename the wp-contents/plugins subdirectory to something else
  2. Create a blank new subdirectory there called plugins
  3. Run the site – the site is up again!
  4. Delete the new plugins subdirectory
  5. Rename the old plugins subdirectory back to plugins

As the author of this solution says on his web page, the remedy is mysterious.
