    I tried installing bbpress forum on my blog. I successfully installed it and even got a mail from bbpress team.

    Your new bbPress site has been successfully set up at:

    http://www.aboutonlinetips.com/forum/

    You can log in to the key master account with the following information:

    Username: aboutonlinetips

    Password:

    We hope you enjoy your new forums. Thanks!

    –The bbPress Team

    http://bbpress.org/

    When I visited the url – Nothing like Forum comes.

    Please help me out guys.

    Regards

  • When you installed bbpress, what folder did you put all the files in? Your server’s acting like nothing was uploaded to ‘forum’

    This page gives a 500 Server Error:

    http://www.aboutonlinetips.com/bbpress/

    That means there’s probably a syntax error in one of the files needed for the front page.

    I renamed the folder to forum. Prviously it was bbpress.

    @Chrishjer- Which file should I check for syntax error. Please help

    @chrishajer

    You should check all the PHP files for syntax errors. Especially any file you might have modified. Did you modify a theme, install any plugins, modify the bb-config.php?

    The files from bbPress are probably OK, assuming they were uploaded properly, so check anything you modified or edited.

    Before installing the forum I created one new mySQL DB and one user instead of using already existing mySQL DB. Apart from this I have not made any other change to any other file.

    If you suggest to repeat the steps I can re-install it again.

    Please suggest the steps to completely uninstall bbpress for re-installation.

    Regards

    What version did you install?

    I would not reinstall since that’s no magic bullet. Do you have access to PHP error logs? A blank screen indicating a 500 Server Error should be logged somewhere. It’s possible your server has a PHP function that’s been disabled, but is required by bbPress. In that case, reinstalling will not change a thing.

    I would try to find an error log, or if that does not exist, turn on some custom error reporting.

    Chrishajer,

    I am using following versions-

    WordPress version 2.6.1

    bbpress-0.9.0.3

    Where to find PHP error Logs? I tried but unable to find it. I am not a techie. I would appreciate if you can sort out the issue.

    1. I don’t believe those versions will integrate. 2.5 goes with 0.9.0* and 2.6+ goes with the 1.0 alpha versions.

    2. Where to find the logs depends on your host. Is there access to logs from your hosts control panel?

    If you’re not a techie, adding the code for custom error reporting might be a bit over your pay grade, so I won’t post that. Right now though, if you are not seeing the forum, and it’s giving a 500 Server Error, you need to see what that error is to help resolve this.

    Chrishajer,

    I was able to pull out log files..

    /home1/aboutonl/public_html/bbpress/error_log: [05-Jan-2009 10:59:26] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function do_action() in /home1/aboutonl/public_html/bbpress/index.php on line 6 [05-Jan-2009 11:08:16] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function do_action() in /home1/aboutonl/public_html/bbpress/index.php on line

    What should I do now?

    This problem has come up a couple times in the past couple days:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/bbpress-10-alpha-6-released#post-22750

    The function do_action exists in ./bb-includes/wp-functions.php. Do you have that file and is it complete? Is there a line (around 641, in 0.9.0.4 anyway) that starts with:

    function do_action ($tag, $arg = '') {

    Is it possible that not all the files were properly uploaded?


    aboutonlinetips

    @aboutonlinetips

    Yes the line is present

    if ( !function_exists(‘do_action’) ) : // [WP5857]

    function do_action($tag, $arg = ”) {

    global $wp_filter, $wp_actions;

    I think if it were me, I would compare the files on the server with a clean archive to see if there are any differences. Or, you could just re-upload and overwrite everything.

    It’s almost like the files aren’t being included, so the files you’re trying to display don’t know those functions exist.
