Logging in to WordPress logs me out of bbPress, vice versa.

    I think I might have broken something when setting up bbPress. I wanted it integrated with my wordpress site. While installing, when it asked for the username for the “Key Master” I put in Murgy, which is my WordPress admin name. Anyway, I went through the rest of the installation, integrations, etc. But now, when I log into WordPress, it logs me out of bbPress, and when I log into bbPress it logs me out of WordPress, so… I’m thinking that naming the initial Key Master the same as my WP admin name maybe wasn’t the smartest idea.

    But anyway. Is there any way to fix this, or should I reinstall or something?

    Does your server use php5? I use 1and1 hosting and I have to put a line in the htaccess or I get the same thing.

    Yeah. It uses php5. What do you have to do, exactly?

    This is a good tutorial (with screenshots) for integration – http://www.wpmods.com/integrate-wordpress-bbpress

    Add

    AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php
    AddHandler x-httpd-php .php4

    to your .htacess file. By default GoDaddy uses php4

    bah I should add pictures to my tutorial!

    Thanks for the tutorial link, Gautam.

    Actually the problem ended up being that I was using a separate database for the forums, as nothing I had read previously said that I could use the same database as WordPress, or that I needed to do something differently if I WAS using separate databases.

    So yeah. Reinstalled using my WordPress database, and everything is working now.

    Thanks again!

    The website states

    “There are lots of articles on the web stating that bbPress and WordPress have to be installed into the same database in order for the two scripts to integrate correctly. This is not true (though perhaps it was in the past). “

    But it’s great that it worked.

    Uh. Yes. I can read, and I DID read that, thanks. As I said…

    “Nothing I had read previously said that I COULD use the same database as WordPress, __or that I needed to do something differently if I WAS using separate databases__.” (emphasis added)

    So, yes. I realize there was another solution to the problem. I just chose to solve it the one way.
