Description Richard Webster 2006-12-17 21:26:14 UTC
I've installed 1.8.2 locally on OS X using MAMP (which provides mySQL, PHP5, Apache all 
in a tidy single directory).

Ran installer, moved LocalSettings.php, and was able to view the Main_Page.

Clicked "edit" (btw, tried this on other pages than "Main_Page" with same result)

Edit form looked fine... added a single word (no tags) and hit save. 

Result after: I get a blank page. No content, no source code, nothing.

I suspect some disconnect with the DB, but the installation reports suggest 
communication with the MySQL is good.

What does the PHP error log contain regarding the problem? Big blank pages often
indicate that some error is reported here.

Got the same problem, running PHP 5.1.6 Apache 2.x, but on a Linux server.
Unfortunately I can't access the error logs...

this seems to be the same problem:

Hi... I had the same problem... 

The problem was that PHP ran out of allowed memory. Please check php and/or
apache logs.

I've set the memory_limit in php.ini to

memory_limit = 20M 

(instead of 8M) and my problems disappeared

:)

Thanks Thom,

seems that the memory_limit did it... 

In case you don't have access to php.ini, adding these lines at the top of
index.php might work for you:

ini_set(memory_limit,"20M");

(see
http://users.757.org/~joat/wiki/index.php/Fixing_MediaWiki's_memory_issues_when_you_don't_have_access_to_php.ini
)

worked for me ;)

Arun
