A search for "blank page" of the Drupal.org domain yields about 37,000 results.
This is probably one of the more common and frustrating problems for Drupal admins.

A while back, I came across a "duplicate entry" problem that resulted from a missing row in the drupal table 'users'.
It turns out that the users table is not the only one that requires information on "user 0" (aka "anonymous").
This week I came across another problem in which anonymous users get a "you are not authorized ..." message when trying to view any sort of content.

This is a surprisingly common error for drupal users. Drupal has very powerful access control features, this is good. But it also means it's pretty easy to configure things in such a way that you prevent your users (usually the anonymous ones) from accessing content, this is bad.
I've run across this problem on many occassions, so I've put together a checklist that may help you debug your access problems.
Well, that's it for now. As always, if you have any tips or ideas, please add a comment here.
