Where to install bbpress files to best integrate w/ wordpress?

    I’m having a hard time figuring out the bbpress install — have failed and just pulled it all down again — so, starting from the beginning: My WordPress blog is at http://www.intar.org/wp_01 — where should I install the bbPress files? Also, should I have a directory called “forums,” and if so, where should that go?

    Thanks!

    I have my wordpress install as the root of my website and then there is a folder beneath that for ‘forums’.

    So, my directory structure looks like this:

    /var/www/wp-config.php
    /var/www/forums/config.php

    In the bbpress config.php I have these (relevant) lines:

    $bb->path   = '/forums/';
    $bb->wp_home = 'http://www.website.com';
    $bb->wp_siteurl = 'http://www.website.com';

    For yours, since you have WordPress at wp_01, you would have something like this:

    /var/www/index.html <---- your website home, not WP home
    /var/www/wp_01/wp-config.php
    /var/www/wp_01/forums/config.php

    your config.php:

    $bb->path   = '/wp_01/forums/';
    $bb->wp_home = 'http://www.intar.org/wp_01';
    $bb->wp_siteurl = 'http://www.intar.org/wp_01';
