Re: Installing phpMyAdmin on my web server

At the top of the config.php files of bbPress and WordPress these values will be the same.


// ** MySQL settings ** //

define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ”); // The name of the database

define(‘BBDB_USER’, ”); // Your MySQL username

define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ”); // …and password

define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

$bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

$bb->wp_siteurl = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘;

/* Stop editing */

I already have WordPress installed in my public_html directory in a folder named blog.

Above, I put in examples of how to fill-in ‘examples’

Apparently it would be wp_home =

and wp_siteurl =

Apparently, only the WordPress has to have the bottom portion filled-in?

If this is correct then I would have to fill-in bottom portion of the WordPress config.php and FTP it before I reinstalled bbPress.

[regardless of where the physical files actually reside]

I was thinking of the physical storage of the files.

[Does that make sense?]

I think so.
