White screen with Mageneto Connect Manager 2 (Magento fresh install)

Hi all,

I’ve got a couple of fresh installs of Magento set up on our dedicated server but have run into a problem with Magento Connect.

When I check for upgrades all I get is a white screen with the following address:
http://www.[domain name goes here];=0&updates;=yes

Having gone through the code I’ve identified the page terminating in /downloader/Maged/Model/Connect.php at line 165 (by adding an exit(date(’r’)); line at the various points).

I will admit that I haven’t delved any deeper (into /downloader/Mages/Connect.php and further) but can do if helpful.

Does anyone know why this may be killing the page?

[edit] - I forgot to mention I found the following thread which seems to have a similar problem but the workaround didn’t work for me.
