[Solved] Initial setup issues - blank page only

I’ve installed Matomo as per Installing Matomo - Analytics Platform - Matomo and configured NGINX in front of it as per GitHub - matomo-org/matomo-nginx: Nginx configuration for running Matomo using php-fpm as the PHP processor.

Everything appears to be in order, with neither NGINX nor php-fpm returning any errors, but upon navigating to either index.php or piwik.php I receive an empty response/completely blank HTML page.

Fresh install of all the things on Ubuntu 16.04, nginx version: nginx/1.10.3, PHP 7.0.30-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

Not sure where to go from here as nothing reports any issues, the expected headers are returned with a 200 etc.


A blank page means that an PHP error occured. So to find out what exactly goes wrong you should take a look in your nginx error log and php error log.

You may also want to take a look at my nginx config as it is quite a bit more modern and simpler.


Awesome, thanks for your help!

Tweaked your config to suit my needs and it fired right up.
