the issue is that you are using a free/cheap host, unless you pay for a good host there is nothing that can be done to fix your problem.

there is no code change that will solve your problem.

You don't need to read the whole thread, only the first couple of posts by Kindred.  The wiki article is more concise, since it comprises just those posts, so it may be easier for you:

http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/What_the_white_screen_of_death_means_when_accessing_admin_or_package_installs

Once you've read that, you can ask if there is specific English phrasing which you don't understand, however, Illori and Chalkcat have given you the summarised solution above.  The problem is your hosting, not SMF's software.

There is no other solution to those which are presented in the wiki article I linked you to.

I repeat, the problem you are experiencing is not a problem with SMF, so there's nothing we can do to help you.  You need to change your host.

What web host are you using?
 
That will help us to make a list of web hosts that have this issue.

making a list does not help as there are too many free hosts out there and i bet 98% of them have this issue. if people pay for a non-oversold host they will not have the issue and have a better running forum.

He's using 000webhost, but as Illori says, I don't think that adding free hosts to the list you want to compile is that useful for the reasons given.

Zelix, you want free host, you've got free host.  Now you understand why free hosts are free.

free host, eg. 000webhost => white screen problem  :'(

good paid host => problem solved  8)

1. The OP did not state what web host. The one mentioned was an example, by ChalkCat.
2. A list is a good idea, so it can be added to the wiki, so those people that see the wiki will know if their host is one of the ones this issue affects. Also, it will help other newbies stay away from those particular hosts.

it will not help people stay away, most have decided on their host before even installing their forum. people will always pick the cheapest options. a list will not make them think twice or not use a host. they will think the list is bias and not use it.

You've not seen his other thread I take it ;)?

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=507940.msg3578835#msg3578835

As you can see he mentions his host there.

I agree with Illori's point above, but if you want to write a wiki page on this, then you're welcome to do so.

Not so much a separate page, just a list on the current page.
At the bottom, a small list of web hosts that have been reported.

and if anything about those hosts change we would not know, so it could be outdated, and then useless to keep a list of.

on the white screen issue... yet again proving that Zelix is not actually even reading anything we post
(originally posted as the first response in his other thread..........)
...

Also... seeing who your host is, when you start getting the white screen of death - read the wiki/FAQ before you come complaining to us.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.
