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.


* or she.

    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.
