XF 1.5 Admin Panel - White Screen of Death


So just moved my site from GoDaddy shared hosting to a VPS. Everything seems to be working except I can't get into backend. Just greeted with a blank screen.

Changed the admin.php file permissions temporarily to 755 and still can't get to it even over written it with a fresh download. Didn't make a difference.

What else can I try? Thanks!

A blank page is sometimes due to a suppressed error.
Edit the library/config.php file and add the following:
ini_set('display_errors', true);

Does that show anything?

How did you do the server move?
Did you use phpMyAdmin to dump and restore the DB, or SSH?


Thanks, I used phpmyadmin to dump and restore.

I do see an error now.
