Doing Integration, can’t login in bbpress

    I am going through the process of filling out the integration form in the bbpress control panel. It suggested that the users prefix was likely to be wp_ so I tried that out. Now I can’t login to bbpress, it’s complaining “bbPress database error: [Table 'addiva_bbpress.wp_users' doesn't exist]“

    So I want to keep experimenting with what it needs, but I can’t progress since I can’t log back into the control panel. How do I get around this?

    Have I used the wrong version of bbpress?

    Is there a file I can ftp down and alter so that we can get working again? How do people get around this brick wall?

    Those versions are compatible, so I don’t think that is the cause of your problem.

    Does the table it is complaining about, ‘addiva_bbpress.wp_users’ actually exist, or no?

    No, it doesn’t exist.

    I take it there is no quick fix to get out of this dilemna? I don’t understand why, but now we are also unable to log into our word press blog.

    My plan is to uninstill bbpress, then attempt to install it to the wordpress database. I’m on the road now and won’t have an opportunity to do this till tomorrow. If anybody knows of a quick fix to get our wordpress blog working, it would be great.

    Is there a problem with your wordpress install too?

    To fix bbpress, you need phpmyadmin or a similar tool. Login, go to your bbpress database. Not certain what it’s like on 0.9, but you probably need to go to the bb_topicmeta table and perform a search (or browse through) to find a record where the meta_key is wp_table_prefix. Try deleting that record. Without that setting I think bb would look for its own users again.
