Basically this website is very simple. Does have a back end to upload the items.


index.php shows blank page

It does happen sometimes that when you put your newly developed web application to a server it shows a blank page on start up. If you have it on your local machine and it shows 'unable to connect', that normally means that your wampserver or xampp is not running. Turning on your apache server will normally fix it for local development, but what about when it happens on the server?

I've found that the first thing you should look at is your capitalization. I once had a file in my application/views/helpers that started with a small letter, and that caused me a blank page. So be sure to check the capitalization of all your files on the server.
