problems with installation and integration

  • i uploaded the bbpress folder into the wordpress folder, and then i edited config-sample as shown below: (slighty edited)

    // Just the

    domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash

    here.

    $bb->domain = ‘http://shadesofblack.free1k.com’; // Example:

    ‘http://bbpress.example.com’

    // There should be both a leading and

    trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb-

    >path = ‘wordpress/bbpress/’; …….

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix.

    Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘my-domain-name.com/wordpress’;

    // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing

    slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘www.my-domain-name.com/wordpress’; /

    and when i’m going to run install, nothing happened, it just lead me right back to my blog. so i tried another version of my installion… this time, i moved the bbpress folder into the main directory, and edited the config file: trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb-

    >path = ‘/bbpress/’;

    i was then shocked with what i saw.. the installion message! i entered a username for keymaster: admin and it said that it’ll use my wp password. i tried logging in but i couldn’t. i was taken right back to the index page. i’ve surfed around this forum and realized that wp integration options in the config file will only work if bbpress is uploaded into the wordpress directory. but i really can’t do that because as i’ve said, i tried that in my first install yet nothing happened. help please!

  • oops, i tried another version of the config file, i made everything i edited in the “only useful for wordpress integration” part and placed the values “false” and here’s what i got when i tried logging in.

    bbPress database error: [Table 'preckie_wpdb.bb_users' doesn't exist]

    SELECT * FROM bb_users WHERE user_login = ‘admin’ AND SUBSTRING_INDEX( user_pass, ‘—’, 1 ) = ‘d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e’

    First off, I would go back to the beginning. Delete all the bbpress files that you put into your WP directory. Then create a sub directory inside of WP, bbpress, or something. Put all of bbpress in there.

    If you copied and pasted the config.php file exactly as you inputted it, then the problem seems to be that you didn’t fully fill out the config file.

    Config-sample.php should be renamed to config.php and this is what you should be entering (leave anything I didn’t include here alone):

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘wordpress‘); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘ur MySQL username‘); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘the pass to the database‘); // …and password

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    $bb->domain = ‘http://shadesofblack.free1k.com‘; // Example: ‘http://bbpress.example.com’

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/bbpress/‘; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    Give your forum a name and enter your email…

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘http://shadesofblack.free1k.com‘; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘http://shadesofblack.free1k.com‘; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

    And that’s it…go to shadesofblack.free1k.com/bbpress and you should get the installer.

    Aren’t the 2 using 2 separate databases? Isn’t there a way to make them use just one?

    Thanks

    I just can’t get this thing to work. I am doing a local install on my PC and I would like it to be exactly how this site has been setup where I have a nav link at the top that takes me to the forum from WP.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    shedrock,

    even if wordpress and bbpress are using different database u still can have the same user database. The only u need to do is to make sure wordpress and bbpress database name and user is the same.

    To call your forum from wordpress, maybe u can try making new static page and set “post slug” = “bbpress folder”. So everytime u click on that page, u will be redirect to your forum.

    P/S: maybe this will only work if you enable pretty permalink for wp.

    peiqinglong’s clarification:

    First off, I would go back to the beginning. Delete all the bbpress files that you put into your WP directory. Then create a sub directory inside of WP, bbpress, or something. Put all of bbpress in there.

    Should be included on the 1, 2, 3 Step Installation Page, which should read:

    1. Unzip to a sub directory of WP e.g., ‘bbpress’. This will become part of your forum URL http://yourcoolsite.com/bbpress/.
    2. Copy config-sample.php to config.php and fill in the necessary details.
    3. Load bb-admin/install.php and do what it tells you.

    Let basking be the RESULT of the process, rather than hogging up 33% of the 1, 2, 3 process. :)

    my wordpress site is located at my domain name/wordpress. god, i need to figure this thing out. i also renamed the config-sample.php huhu! let me try this later and see if it works.. thanks so much for the help! :D

    There is actually a better Forum addon you can use for your WP site. It is called XDFORUM and it can be found at: http://www.xdweb.net/.

    I used xdforum, but could never really get the look I like.

    http://www.bui4ever.com/xdforum

    Plus I’m stil having problems with the redirect. BBPress, IMO, seems to have much better integration and look.

    Going to try this one out. Can’t get that BBpress to install :(

    Well, that is to say… IF it has a way to link blog post to the forum, so that the discussion is taken place on the forum.

    Nevermind. it doesn’t seem like what I want is possible :(

    Maybe it gonna be possible :) Why don’t you try this http://dev.mbzeus.net/
