Site’s down at the moment

So a viewer reported seeing a blank screen when they tried to go to the Charley Project. It worked fine for me last night but I’m getting a blank screen now also, on both phone and computer.

The Charley Project is run via WordPress and when I tried to go to the WordPress dashboard that’s not working either, which leads me to think this is on WordPress’s end. If it’s not resolved by later today I’ll start banging on people’s (metaphorical) doors about it and see if I can get something done.

    It’s probably a PHP error on the site (WordPress runs on PHP). That’s the default behavior for this when there is this type of error. Would need to look at the error log to tell the problem. Otherwise, enable Display Errors for the error to be show on the site.

    If you view source of the webpage, you’ll see that it’s actually serving the site’s PHP as HTML. Fortunately the front-controller you’re seeing doesn’t contain any compromising information. You’ll want to contact your hosting provider and ask them to ensure that files ending in .php are served as PHP rather than as HTML.

    This is entirely a server-configuration issue, and has nothing to do with anything you would have done to the site (unless you are a super-duper power user).

    I’m glad to hear it’s on WP’s end and not my employer blocking the page because of how much work time I spend on Charley!
