I set up wordpress on a small AWS virtual ubuntu machine last night with the most current LAMP stack. It seemed to work last night but I didn't do much after the initial configuration. I did change the theme, but it was to one of the preloaded ones.
This morning, any time I try to load the page it just sits there and spins. It does seem to load the title and subtitle into the browser tab, but that is it. Same when I try to go to administrative pages. If I go to the php info page it comes up without issue.
I've looked at many help sites and they all seem to be regurgitating the same information. I have turned on debug and the debug logs. No error messages or logs are generated. I've been monitoring memory, and while I will eventually need to add more, I don't get above 20% utilization on the system. PHP is set at its default, 128mb. I've reloaded apache and mysql many times and verified the login settings in the wp-config.php are correct.
I at a loss for what to try next.
