Help with installation andintegration

  • I am trying to integrate WPMU 2.71, BuddyPress 1.0, and bbpress bbPress 1.0-rc-1.

    WPMU and BuddyPress work fine.

    BBPress is a nightmare.

    It never finishes the installation although it says:

    Your installation completed with some minor errors. See the error log below for more specific information.

    Key master could not be created!

    Forum could not be created!

    Referrer is OK, beginning installation…

    There were some errors encountered during installation!

    When I try log in it takes me back to the install page.

    Can someone advise how to get out of this loop?

    If not how to delete BBpress?

    @johnjamesjacoby

    Correct. Delete those out of there.

    I’ve noticed that the trunk doesn’t like existing users also. I’ll probably post a ticket in the trac about it this morning.

    Thanks. How do i remove the existing user information?

    I am not sure what the trac means?

    Trac is a bug tracking application, found here for bbPress:

    http://trac.bbpress.org/

    I dleted the tables. I deleted the user files for bbpress.

    This is the error message I get now.

    The database failed to install. You may need to replace bbPress with a fresh copy and start again.

    Is bbpress compatible with wordpress or am I wasting my time?

    @chrishajer

    Sounds like your database does not support uft8_general_ci collation? Maybe you need to set define('BBDB_COLLATE', ''); in your bb-config.php to something the server supports? Maybe you can look at the collation for the existing WPMU tables, and just use that in bb-config.php?

    Never seen this before, just guessing at a solution.

    I checked with my webhost.

    They do support utf8_general_ci on databases.

    @chrishajer

    Does *your* database, the one you’re using, support it though? Apparently, it does not, according to the error messages. Unless of course the error message is erroneous.

    You can do this from a MySQL command line or phpMyAdmin once you connect to your database:

    SHOW COLLATION LIKE 'utf8%';

    That will show you all collations that begin with utf8.

    I’m also having this issue. My collation was set to something different so I thought I had found the issue, I changed the collation on the DB using phpMyAdmin>Operations however even after setting the DB to utf8_general_ci I still get the same error.

    bbPress 1.0-rc-1

    Wordpress MU 2.7.1

    BuddyPress 1.0

    Can we leave the collation blank in the wp_config.php and while installing bbPress? What is this for?

    @bzmillerboy

    I tried deleting uft8_general_ci from my wp_config.php file and left it blank during the install however now I’m getting the following error.
