404 upon innstall

    Hi guys!

    I’ have now tried to read everywhere to find a decent answer on my question, but no luck.

    I am trying to install the bbpress in a subdir under my wp blog, but no matter what I do I keep getting the 404 not found when I try to run the /install.php

    I don’t know if my config.php is correct…

    <?php

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘*******’); //

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘*******’); //

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘*******’); //

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’;

    $bb->domain = ‘http://aagymruss.net/’;

    $bb->path = ‘/forum/’;

    $bb->name = ‘├ůsane russen sin lekeplass’;

    $bb->admin_email = ‘yngve dot petersen @ gmail dot com’;

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    $bb->akismet_key = false ”;

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; //

    $bb->wp_home = ‘http://aagymruss.net/’; //

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘http://aagymruss.net/’;

    define(‘BBPATH’, dirname(__FILE__) . ‘/’ );

    require_once( BBPATH . ‘bb-settings.php’ );

    ?>

    I really don’t know how much you guys can get out of this, but if there is more info you need, just say so.

    Well, the question is; why cant i get this thing to install?

    Is there anything I have to put in to make it work with my wp installation?

    In advance: thank you! (And sorry if my English isn’t to good:)

    First off, take the slash off the domain part:

    $bb->domain = 'http://aagymruss.net';

    That might get it going.

    As well, I changed your email in the post so that you don’t get harvested by spambots.

    Thanks, but removing the slash had no effect :(

    Change over to this as well:

    $bb->akismet_key = false;

    no effect neither:(

    http://aagymruss.net/forum/bb-admin/install.php this is the right dir for install, right?

    It looks like you have an .htaccess file in http://aagymruss.net/forum/ or maybe the permissions on that directory are not 644. Maybe check that out. As well, are all the files uploaded? I know that sounds like a stupid question, but http://aagymruss.net/forum/bb-admin/ says it doesn’t exist (not like the root folder that has permissions problem).

    In fact, I should be able to see the file at this location, but it doesn’t exist!

    It seems a little strange….

    I have a similar problem, but mine is at http://www.scoop0901.net/Sleep/Forum/.

    If you visit that URL, you will get to the main page. Create a user account, then click VIEW PROFILE. It takes you to a 404 page. The same thing happens if you try to view tags (http://scoop0901.net/Sleep/Forum/tags/bbpress) or anything else.

    I would imagine that you have the following in config.php:

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.
    $bb->mod_rewrite = true;

    Maybe change that to the following until you get the install up and running:

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.
    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    After that, head over to the documentation => Custimization = > Permalinks of the navbar at the top.

    Thanks, Trent. You’re fast!

    Actually, I tried that, after doing some CHMOD on directories. It worked. Argh! Nothing’s as easy as it seems sometimes, huh?

    Thanks again, Trent!

    You have the new link for Customizing Permalinks? If so, could you please send it to me in email? I have a contact form on my site. I followed the Documentation link, but it isn’t there any longer. Not having a search function on the site hurts. Ouch. :(

    TIA,

    -dave

    I was going on memory and I guess 30 years old I lost it…..

    Trent, thank you! After trying all the advanced fixes here, it ended up being the simple slash at the end of the domain, then everything worked.

    cheers
