Re: problems with installation and integration

First off, I would go back to the beginning. Delete all the bbpress files that you put into your WP directory. Then create a sub directory inside of WP, bbpress, or something. Put all of bbpress in there.

If you copied and pasted the config.php file exactly as you inputted it, then the problem seems to be that you didn’t fully fill out the config file.

Config-sample.php should be renamed to config.php and this is what you should be entering (leave anything I didn’t include here alone):

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

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

define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘the pass to the database‘); // …and password

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

$bb->domain = ‘‘; // Example: ‘’

// There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

$bb->path = ‘/bbpress/‘; // Example: ‘/forums/’

Give your forum a name and enter your email…

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

$bb->wp_home = ‘‘; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash

$bb->wp_siteurl = ‘‘; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash

And that’s it…go to and you should get the installer.
