Hi guys

Whenever I try to create a new pdf invoice I just get a blank page with no html, nothing, zip, zero and no pdf… Im running 1.2.1.2 with danish locale, ePay payment module, auction matrix shipping module and advanced SMTP + hello clean frontend template.

Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ok… found something. The issue seems related with my locale translation, cause when I switch to english (uk) backend, PDF printing works fine…

I met the same problem, it seems that it dues to the configuraton of the server.

Well, I am trying to figure it out.

Anyone knows why ?

I’ve been having this on a 1.1.8 system, US English. I switched it to UK English, then back to US and now invoice printing is working properly. I wonder if just changing the setting then back would fix it for you too?

I upgraded to 1.3.0 but that didn’t help at all - now I can’t “trick” magento anymore by selecting UK locale, so I’m stuck with blank pages - not smart for a project about to launch…

I’m suspecting fastCGI to be a part of the problem as this has been reported to cause problems here:

Hope to find a solution soon…

I found the problem to be our server that was running php through fastcgi - when we changed it to normal php lib, all errors etc. was gone!
