    Are you certain the bbPress files are in a subdirectory of your WordPress installation? Can you post a directory listing showing where the files are located?

    It’s probably a conflict with your WP htaccess settings…

    If you can put forums in your main public_html folder instead? I’m not sure how well nesting the folders like you’ve done will work.

    Example of my setup:

    /public_html/forums

    /public_html/blog

    Then for a subdomain:

    /public_html/SUB/blog

    /public_html/SUB/forums

    /public_html/SUB/gallery

    etc etc etc

    If you add /forums/license.txt to your domain (can’t type the whole domain from memory on this device) that file comes up, which means the files are installed in the correct location. So, my guess is that it IS something in the .htaccess or hosting control panel.

    Thanks Ipstenu and chrishajer.

    Yeah now I notice that the /forums/license.txt file opens up. I’ve suspected htaccess to be the source of trouble. So now what do I do to fix this? HELP :-)

    Your htaccess is killing a /forums/ but NOT http://huddle.inversekarma.in/forums/index.php

    Which takes you to http://huddle.inversekarma.in/forums/bb-admin/install.php

    So … either figure out what’s in your htaccess outside of the regular wordpress stuff that might cause this, or use the index.php? Without seeing your htaccess we can’t even guess too much.

    I never saw even http://huddle.inversekarma.in/forums/index.php work!

    Here’s my .htaccess in /huddle

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </Files>
    </IfModule>

    And here’s the one in /huddle/forums

    Options +MultiViews
    Options +Indexes
    IndexOptions ShowForbidden

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file= [L]

    What’s that for? It’s the only thing I don’t recognize.

    Hey thanks Ipstenu. I just tried removing this line:

    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file= [L]

    And the installer is running. I guess this error is resolved (Though now I’m having trouble with Step 3 of the installation, which means I’m running over to another topic).

    Thanks a lot :-)
