In reply to: bbpress forum on wordpress page
I guess I’ll try a forum plugin for WordPress. Do you happen to know any of the downfalls of doing such? I’ve just heard such great things about bbpress.
That helped so much. My host info needed to be changed. Thanks!
I loaded bbpress into the /forums/ directory and then went to http://natureforkids.net/forum/bbpress/bb-admin/install.php
I got this message:
“There doesn’t seem to be a bb-config.php file. This usually means that you want to install bbPress. We’re now going to go through a few steps to get you up and running.”
I followed the link and entered my database name and database user and password which I got from my host. I entered the info and got this message:
“There was a problem connecting to the database you specified.
Please check the settings, then try again. “
I re-did this a couple times, checking and rechecking the database info. I keep getting this message.
I created a directory called /forum/
now my remote system looks like this.

do I load bbpress into the /forums/ directory now?
