Getting “already installed error” on fresh install
I am running a WP site and trying to install BBpress, but when I run the install.php file, I keep getting the “already installed” error.
Here are some things I’ve already tried:
I created a new test directory and installed a fresh WP out of box, and then tried installing BB press–same error
I checked my databases–the only two I have are my two Word Press DB’s none of which seem to have any “bb_” references to them.
Any other suggestions? Thanks in advanced!
Here is a copy of my config.php file that I am using in my test directory:
// ** MySQL settings ** //
define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘areamomc_wrdp2′); // The name of the database
define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘areamomc_wrdp2′); // Your MySQL username
define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘**************’); // …and password
define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change these last few
define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8′); // If you are *upgrading*, and your old config.php does
define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ”); // not have these two contstants in them, DO NOT define them
// If you are installing for the first time, leave them here
// Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.
$bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!
// The full URL of your bbPress install
$bb->uri = ‘http://www.areamom.com/test’;
// What are you going to call me?
$bb->name = ‘Area Mom Forums’;
// This must be set before you run the install script.
$bb->admin_email = ‘*********’;
// Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.
$bb->mod_rewrite = false
// The number of topics that show on each page.
$bb->page_topics = 30;
// A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.
$bb->edit_lock = 60;
// Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.
$bb->gmt_offset = -5;
// Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the
// chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.
// For example, install de.mo to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’
// to enable German language support.
// Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage
// of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at
$bb->akismet_key = ‘********’; // Example: ’0123456789ab’
// The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.
// If you’re not, just leave it as it is.
$bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;
$bb->wp_home = ‘http://www.areamom.com/test’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // Example: ‘http://example.com’
$bb->wp_siteurl = ‘http://www.areamom.com/test’; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘http://example.com’
/* Stop editing */

define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );
require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );
