I have no idea, of course, but try temporarily deleting the require once
codings such as:

require_once( "$IP/extensions/ParserFunctions/ParserFunctions.php" );

at the bottom of LocalSettings.php and see if the wiki works without

A require once call like that when there is no corresponding installed
extension will blank your main page, indeed your entire wiki.
