Good morning

Describe the problem you’re having:

When I opened the url to tt-rss (, the login screen appeared. I entered the default user name and password and clicked on “Anmelden” (Login).

A blank screen appeared.

If possible include steps to reproduce the problem:

… Check above mentioned link

tt-rss version (including git commit id):

…the most recent (cloned from git on 3.3.2018

Platform (i.e. Linux distro, PHP, PostgreSQL, etc) versions:

Please provide any additional information below:

After searching google for possible solutions I did the following:

  • changed permissions for all files to 777 - didn’t change anything
  • checked the PHP log file - no entry

What else could I do?

Kind regards



A blank page usually means a PHP fatal error. If you’re getting this after logging in (i.e. you can reach the login screen and submit the form) it probably means enough of TT-RSS is able to load that it can intercept the PHP errors; by default TT-RSS logs them to its database.

Try temporarily changing LOG_DESTINATION in the config.php file to an empty string (i.e. just two single quotes).

Then open your browser’s inspector and attempt to login. If it doesn’t work, report back the HTTP response code and check the PHP log files on the server for errors–report them as well.
