Occasionally a site user or developer will navigate to a page and suddenly the page content disappears, and is completely blank. No content. No errors. Nothing. This often, but not always, happens after updating a module, theme, or Drupal core. This is what is referred to by most members of the Drupal community as the White Screen of Death or WSOD. There are several reasons why this might occur, and therefore several possible solutions to the issue.

For how to solve this problem, look here.


Do you have to use multiple terminals while working on console, then screen is the utility for you.
Now you would like to login into screen by default so that you dont have enter the screen command every time you start a new bash. For this all you have to do is enter a line

screen -x || screen

in your .bashrc or .bash_profile file in your home directory.

.bashrc is executed every time you start a console. So adding the above line in .bashrc file executes the above line every time .bash is started. above line just checks if there is already a screen opened on the system. If it is opened, it connects to that or else it starts a new screen.
