Just one specific page, or is it the whole of confluence?

The blank page is generally caused when the database server cannot be reached by Confluence or the database service is not started.

In addition, you can verify the atlassian-confluence.log file from the Home-Directory/logs folder to have a better understanding of what is happening.

I believe you're having as issue similar to the one mentioned here:

These are the main investigation paths we can follow initially. Otherwise, I suggest you raise a support ticket at
