Any suggestions ?

“Dear Cliffmaster, (Customer ID: 6XXXXXXXX)
Thank you for contacting us.
With regards to your query,
we would highly suggest that you install BBpress on a different folder
and not on folder where you have installed a different CMS (WordPress).
Please separate the two CMS’s by installing them on different folders
under the root directory (/.)
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
