    Please add $Configuration['Debug'] = true; to your /conf/config.php. After that you will not see a blank page any more when you get an error, but you will see an error message.

    Please tell us that error message and we might be able to help.

  • Hey, thank you.
    Debug Modus is on, but i did not get any error message.
    Only a White window when i activate any theme :(

    That sounds weird. Do you have a fresh install and now you are trying to change from default theme (+Baseline) to another (e.g. Baseline)?

    Or does it only happen with some special themes?

    If it is all standard, then please try to re-upload all files you get in this zip:
    Maybe the first upload wasn't complete.
