The webserver never just shows a blank page and if you have run web
application for years as you say you should know that PHP is the
problem here. If you get the admin panel to work and then you get
blank pages on the rest then of course it is PHP the problem. And
first you were asking for rewrite rules and people gave you the exact
rules  and I am sure they work because I have the same in my config
and it took me less than 5 minutes to get my blog to run under Nginx,
why, because I was not bothering this list with problems related to my
PHP configuration. Please, hire a PHP developer or admin to fix your
problem because it is something specific to your PHP setup and just
stop posting. As Igor said it comes to my mailbox and I am tired of
deleting your emails...
