WordPress WSOD , no errors in log files - STRATEGY

Here's a situation I had today:

-nginx + php-fpm server

-Server returns status: 200

-No error in server logs (logical consequence of nginx returning code 200)

Symptoms:
-WSOD (blank page) while loading my WordPress homepage

-I can access admin

-All other , non-wp pages work normally.

After entering the wp-admin, I have found that my main theme is missing from the themes list. Child theme (which is the active one) was there.

However, WP was unable to find the main theme, and it just returned blank error page. No errors at all.

Allegedly, this can be also generated if it cannot find entire wp-content folder.

Hope this saves a bit of your time ! :)
