I am pretty new to WP (I came from Joomla) and I am finding some difficulties trying to put on my local web server an old backup of a website (made using WP 3.5)

I have performed the following operation:

1) I have put the website backup into a directory named blog into my Apache www directory on my Ubuntu local system.

2) Then I have put the database backup on my MySql local server

3) Finally I have change the values in the wp-config.php file to use my local DB

The problem is that when I try to open the URL to see the website I see noting (a white screen)

Into the Apache log file (/var/log/apache2/error.log) I found the following errors messages:

Tnx

    Please do not create multiple questions about same issue. You can edit questions to add additional details. I've closed first one as duplicate since this has more details, but really that one should have been edited with these details. – Rarst Jan 11 '14 at 21:30
  • My first thought is that there is a permissions problem. – s_ha_dum Jan 11 '14 at 23:15
