I'm currently developing a simple component in Joomla 3 and I know that I completely followed the instructions in the book I read. however when I navigate to the component I made only white screen was shown even the Joomla headers were not there and I also configured the server settings error reporting to maximum.

What are the possible problems or wrong doings I had done.

  • Please provide the error message you have. – Dmitry Rekun Jan 30 '15 at 7:03
  • white screen of death. no error messages shown just a plain page with white background. – Voj Jan 30 '15 at 8:58
  • Then you should check your error.log for error as was suggested. – Dmitry Rekun Jan 30 '15 at 15:00
  • Already fixed this issue by installing again the component. – Voj Mar 12 '15 at 8:28

In my personal experience the most likely reason is a simple typo somewhere in the files. Use an editor that does syntax highlighting and pay attention to the colors. I think a typical bug would be forgetting the ending symbol in some block (quote, block, comment, parameter lis, line etc). Syntax highlighting should show that.
