Thank you Igor for making some good points. I won't give up on Nginx, 
which is why I'm still here. I will eventually solve this issue. I will 
look into PHP further to see if I can get it to output an error that 
will help resolve the blank page. You could very well be correct that 
PHP could have been the culprit all along, and not my Nginx
