    @andrewrich

    Hello all,

    I’m seeing the same problem as reported in this older thread where after unzipping the bbPress archive on my server and hitting the default page, the “let’s get started” link doesn’t do anything. Per recommendation I’ve gathered PHP info from my server. With the minimal installation instructions, I don’t even know where to begin troubleshooting, so any assistance would be much appreciated.

    PHP Version 4.3.9

    Oh, and I am using version 0.9.0.5 from the Download page.

    Interesting that this is a CentOS installation as well.

    Can you install WordPress OK on this host or domain?

    I wonder if SELinux could be involved? That’s prevented me from doing things on systems in the past, to the point of me banging my head against the wall for hours.

    SELINUX_INIT from your phpinfo();

    It was doing a similar thing or me, would not advance to step 1. After some debugging, it turned out that I didn’t have php-mysql installed. bbpress code detects it but the error message was getting lost and simply the response was redirected back to step 0.

    Doing apt-get install php5-mysql did the trick.
