    This only happened a few days ago.

    I try and login and its just a blank page. I did a search and theres lots of results but so far the 'solutions' havent done anything


    Some of the webpages still login fine but others just a blank white page and nothing.

    Also ones that worked yesterday have gone white page of death today.

    any ideas?

    Try:

    /wp-login.php

    Does it now show the login page?

    Right click on one of those pages and "View Source" to see if any characters are displayed

    Since it sounds like you removed cookies and clear your cache(?) You might've been fucked over.

    Use your phone to change your email account's password, and if necessary try to reclaim your sites. A white screen is looks like a time out, so it won't produce an error code. If you're using Wordpress or something like that you could have "3rd" party malaciousness.

    It'd be obvious that it's not a server issue since it doesn't sound consistent.

    Hi Arthur,

    I had this issue happen to one of my Wordpress sites last week (whole site is blank - cant access backend - etc).

    What turned out being the issue is a HTTP REFFERER hack that hit a few Wordpress sites I manage - what this does is display links in your header.php file ONLY IF the visitor is a spider/bot of some sort from the major search engines.

    What you should do is open up the theme you are using in an FTP server, and then view some of the main content php pages that build up your site - ie header.php, footer.php, etc - and look for some obfuscated code being inserted right after a "<php" tag begins. You'll pretty quickly be able to see if they are in there as they get thrown everywhere (at least in the hack I found)

    Best option if you do indeed have this problem is to restore the site from a backup, update wordpress, and then go through and harden your site's security.

    If it turns out to be another issue hit me back and maybe we can work it out!

    A white page is normally a PHP error page that has been silenced by the php.ini config so the error doesn't show. You may have been hacked and the hacked page has invalid PHP code in it.

    Probably gotta disable all plugins, upload a fresh install(that won't overwrite your content directory) and then proceed with thorough cleanup.

    Think I might have got it and you guys may have been right.

    The ones that are working dont seem to be randm. Looking thru it seems to be the sites which I updated to new wp which are ok and the older ones which are screwed up. These are jsut a bunch of autoblogs im using for indexing so couldnt be bothered to upgrade at the time, now im paying the price!

    Additional to that, as i tried to download the header.php of one of the problem sites eset flagged it for containing obfuscated code.

    So how to clean these fuckers up?

    The content on them is irrelevant jsut wanna keep the urls (they are jsut in subfolder wp installs) and have fresh blogs. Backup would be quickest i guess? if i update wp quickly after that to prevent a ;relapse'.
