404 Errors on Forums/Topics

  • chengdu-living


    bbPress is installed in this directory: (using a customized theme to match my site, but none of the threads or forums open. They all show a 404 error. Originally I was installed at /forum but I moved it to /bbpress (and changed the install location in General Settings), but I can’t open or create any threads.

    Any idea how to fix this? I didn’t change anything in bb-config.php so I believe all the MySQL information is correct.

    Any help greatly appreciated!!

    BTW I tried what was advised in this thread: but it just displayed the code on the actual live forum page

    Here is my bb-config.php included the added part at the very bottom:

    * The base configurations of bbPress.
    * This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix,
    * Secret Keys and bbPress Language. You can get the MySQL settings from your
    * web host.
    * This file is used by the installer during installation.
    * @package bbPress

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for bbPress */
    define( 'BBDB_NAME', 'justchar_wrdp5' );

    /** MySQL database username */
    define( 'BBDB_USER', 'justchar_wrdp5' );

    /** MySQL database password */
    define( 'PASSWORDWASHERE' );

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define( 'BBDB_HOST', 'localhost' );

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define( 'BBDB_CHARSET', 'utf8' );

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define( 'BBDB_COLLATE', '' );

    * Authentication Unique Keys.
    * Change these to different unique phrases!
    * You can generate these using the {@link secret-key service}
    * @since 1.0
    define( 'BB_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here' );
    define( 'BB_SECURE_AUTH_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here' );
    define( 'BB_LOGGED_IN_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here' );
    define( 'BB_NONCE_KEY', 'put your unique phrase here' );

    * bbPress Database Table prefix.
    * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique
    * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    $bb_table_prefix = 'bb_';

    * bbPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    * Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen
    * language must be installed to a directory called "my-languages" in the root
    * directory of bbPress. For example, install to "my-languages" and set
    * BB_LANG to 'de' to enable German language support.
    define( 'BB_LANG', '' );

    $bb->uri = '';



    I found the solution! I went under Settings > Permalinks and updates the .htaccess file with the information there.

    If this happens to anyone in the future, check there :)
