blank page in one site, permission denied on another

Hi... these issues may not be specific to your products, WP or Buddypress, but I thought I'd try to pick your brain.

I had to rebuild a site that uses BusinessBlog on buddypress because any time I click on member profile, it says: "Permission Denied
Not Found / No Access. The page you are looking for either does not exist, or you do not have the permissions to access it."

I thought a fresh install would help. It did on this front but created another problem. site works fine without WWW in the url. When I put WWW, I see blank pages. Also blank pages when I install something like a plugin or update it. I now removed all plugins, except Budypress. Note that I took Business Blog and extended it into multisite.

Any idea on these two issues before I kill them and redo the work.

The sites is (u can test by adding www)
The other is: Click on any member and u will see the message.

Many thanks

    Hello there @arezkid,
    Is this a shared host or a VPS/Dedicated server? Do you have SSH access to it?
    Do you know if your server is using apache or nginx?
    If it's an apache server (shared hosting) then you can follow this link to learn how to redirect www to no-www domains using your .htaccess file:

    If it's a VPS running apache you might have to do some other things too to enable .htaccess rewrites and if it's nginx then we'll have to dig deeper using SSH access.

    As for your blank pages, I would advise you to set WP_DEBUG to true in your wp-config.php file. This way at least we'll have some idea about what's causing the issue since instead of a blank page you'll most probably get some errors indicating what's happening.

    I hope that helps!
