I have a similar issue with a Joomla installation:

[webmasterworld.com...]

Basically from time to time I get a blank page, on random pages. When refreshing it the page loads normally.

I also get a 200 status code. No error code.

When it appears, the blank page loads in less than a second.

welcome to WebmasterWorld, anamaria2013!


did you view page source to see if a partial document was served perhaps?

I also get a 200 status code. No error code.

Splitting hairs here: Do you mean that you, as user-- with LiveHeaders or equivalent-- GET a 200? Or do you mean that your site SENDS a 200?

Does the source code of the blank page have any content at all?

Blank pages generally mean there's a glitch in the php. By the time the page-building code realizes that it can't build a valid page, it has already put out some content-- even as trivial as a line break-- so it can no longer send out a 404 (or other error) header. But if so, it should still display an error page for the human user.

When it appears, the blank page loads in less than a second.

Even if the page has content at all, it can't possibly have much. So you wouldn't expect it to take time.
