I've done so many WordPress installs that I can practically install WP with both eyes closed and one hand tied behind my back. (humor)
Today I ran into a first and quite puzzling. I did a clean install on a new domain and WordPress 3.1 installed fine. Moved on to the next domain; Installed software, set up config file, etc. and nothing but a blank page. No message to enter email address or site title...just a blank page.
Since I've got my own servers I deleted the domain account, did a clean web hosting account set up, set up database through cpanel, uploaded WP 3.1 again, set up config file, and nothing but a page.
Very odd as first domain set up fine. So now I'm off to do some trouble shooting and will try several new installs on new domains.
This begs the question: When will WP updates become less frequent? With all the great virtues and praise that WP receives, the updates from a management perspective are too frequent. Seems there is a WP every two weeks. (rant)
