    I’m new to all of this, so yes I’m a newb. Do I need to setup a separate db for bb-press different from the wordpress db or can I use the same db?

    Use the same database, and make sure the table prefix is different that what you are using for WordPress. By default, it’s bb_ in the config.php and you can leave it as is so long as you’re not using that already.

    Sounds like you have the database name in there incorrectly. If WordPress is working, then you just need to enter the exact same details in the bbPress config.php for the database.

    Thank you it was the littlest thing in one of the lines.

    Does anybody know why when a forum is clicked from the main menu does it go to my wp index page. I suspect it has to do with bbpress files being in a folder not on the main root, but i can’t figure out what i need to change.

    Same thing happens when I go to my profile page.

    Thanks for any help.
