Re: Forum not visible but installed successfully.
What version did you install?
I would not reinstall since that’s no magic bullet. Do you have access to PHP error logs? A blank screen indicating a 500 Server Error should be logged somewhere. It’s possible your server has a PHP function that’s been disabled, but is required by bbPress. In that case, reinstalling will not change a thing.
I would try to find an error log, or if that does not exist, turn on some custom error reporting.
