Where exactly should I upload bbpress to?

    @scrumtralescent

    At first I uploaded the folder bbpress-0.8.3.1.zip to

    /home/”mywordpressblogsname”/public_html/wp-content /plugins

    where I unzipped it and modified the necessary files. Obviously, that didn’t work, as it’s not a plugin (I think I was on autopilot, as I’ve only installed plugins up to now).

    So, where do I upload bbpress to exactly? I have some ideas, but I’d rather get some help than bumble around again.

    FYI I am not integrating my forum users with my wordpress blog users (actually, my blog doesn’t allow user login at all).

    Thanks!

    Put it here:

    /home/"mywordpressblogsname"/public_html/bbpress/

    Then in config.php set bb->uri:

    $bb->uri = 'http://"mywordpressblogsname"/bbpress/';

    (assuming your blog is visible at http://“mywordpressblogsname”/ not http://“mywordpressblogsname”/public_html)

    You can name the bbpress folder whatever you want. Sometimes people call it forums. Just be sure to change it to the same thing in config.php.
