While jd_g didn't give us much to go on, he* did state that the problem only "periodically" occurs. So I don't see how your suggestions are going to accomplish much.

ikigami got it right (of course); so many people resort to psychic debugging (or ask others to) when the system is happy to tell them what went wrong.

    Sorry for not giving you much to go on. I was hoping someone out there had experienced this problem before. From my experience, a blank white screen is not very common. I've tried to debug, but the problem never occurs when I want it to. It seems to occur randomly. The last thing I expect is to have other's do the dirty work for me. I debug all the time. Before posting, I searched perlmonks as well as many other sites. I've checked the log files on the server. I've checked the mysql processes when the problem occured. I probably should have mentioned this, but like I previosly said... I was hoping someone out there had experienced the blank white page before and could give some tips.
      A blank white page is far too generic a symptom to correlate to anything. It means only that you produced no visible content. Here's what I would do:
      • See if there's an error message (probably not, since no error was displayed).
      • Look at the page source. Did anything get produced? Does it give you a clue?
      • Add some traces (write html comments perhaps) to the output.

[Corion]: Meh, I found another Amazon "used" scam reseller... If a product sells for "almost new" at half the price, it's a scam, most likely...
[ambrus]: Corion: that's not true. Actually for Christmas and Thanksgiving, a lot of people buy electronics such as cameras as present, then many of them figure out they don't need it,
[ambrus]: and the electronics gets reselled almost new, but it has to be sold at half price because otherwise everyone chooses to buy the new product which has fewer risk of selling damaged products labelled as almost new.
[ambrus]: You can actually get a lot of useful cheap really almost new products that way, with only a little risk of scams.
