There was a problem connecting to the WordPress user database you specified. Please check the settin

  • Hello All.

    I am trying to install bbPress to my WordPress MU installation for 4th time now.

    During the installation process, in the Step 2 where we have the option to integrate the Forums with WordPress, I type all the AUTH keys and all other keys and user database settings correctly, but it ends up showing the following error.

    “There was a problem connecting to the WordPress user database you specified. Please check the settings, then try again.”

    I’m 100% sure I’ve typed the correct data. Okay. So I skipped the User integration part and proceed to finish the installation. Then, I get my Forums set up. Nice and running. Good. But in the Admin page, if I try to integrate the users with WordPress, I am suddenly logged out of my account and my Admin account is vanished.

    If I try to log-in, it says there’s no such account and I can’t access the Admin page any longer/

    Why is this happening and what should I do?

    Same Problem … but not a question of databases

    just missing the file :

    /bbpress/my-plugins/wordpress-bbpress-syncronization/bbwp-sync.php

    in your distribution, or not build

    Suse Linux 11.1 userid etc ok 777 (even exagerated)

    both config.php updated

    WordPress “auth” cookie salt

    and

    WordPress “secure auth” cookie salt

    and

    WordPress “logged in” cookie salt

    some problems on the relative WordPress page you can find just :

    wpbb_secret_key

    last version of wordpress installed

    Please advice when you update your installation script

    Best regards

    Sorry Quasiamodo, but I didn’t get what you tried to say.

    Thanks for great reply, but please note that I’m still a beginner in bbPress.

    Thank you.

    Just similair problem as yours…. may be the same….

    I installed the latest version of WordPress on one of our servers, and thought it would be a nice thing to get it cooperating with bbpress.

    Accordingly you have to install bbpress and configured it to cooperate with wp.

    Then on wp you have to install a plugin called WordPress-bbPress syncronization and configure that thing too.

    On top of this module you will find a box asking you for the directory of the bbpress installation.

    Now given the right address of the bbpress installation, it will build up a link between both by using the

    /bbpress/my-plugins/wordpress-bbpress-syncronization/bbwp-sync.php program, as there is obviously needed some code to execute syncronization.

    In my case this file and directory is completely missing, so even with everything coded the right way, missing the program nothing can happen.

    I have even set permissions to up to 777, meaning readable, executable, writable for whoever, but the file is neither generated nor downloaded nor extracted.

    Accordingly I guess it is missing in the installation package, or the routine to write that thing hangs somewhere…

    Hope it was clearer…

    In any case as soon we get an answer here ,and if you need assistance , it will be a pleasure to help…

    Hmm.. I think I need to repeat my question again.

    I got my Forums set up. Nice and running. But in the Admin page, if I try to integrate the users with WordPress, I am suddenly logged out of my account and my Admin account is vanished.

    If I try to log-in, it says there’s no such account and I can’t access the Admin page any longer/

    Why is this happening and what should I do?
