Admin user cannot login to WP after installing bbpress

  • Just a side-note: My WP auth is successful, because I do not get a password error, but it just re-directs me right back to the WP login page again. I have a feeling it is something to do with my WP integration settings.

    Good or Bad, firefox crashed on me, and when I re-opened it, auth on both WP and bbPress are working now.

    Hmm, ok. So far I am still unable to get WP or bbP logins to affect each other. In fact, adding define( ‘COOKIEPATH’, ‘/’ ); to wp-config.php prevents me from logging into my WP admin panel. So here is the current status:

    1) Have the WP plugin installed and configured

    2) Have bbPress configured

    3) I can login to both separately

    4) If I log out of WP, I cannot log back in to WP

    5) As soon as I log out of bbP, I can then login to WP again.

    6) If I removed the COOKIEPATH from the config, then I can login, and out of WP and bbP separately with no issues, but they do not share a common login.

    So I think the main problem is that my cookie sharing is not working, as I thought that logging into one would make the other logged in to as well.



    What version are you integrating into (wp/bp) and are all your keys the same?

    @Xevo Hi, Thanks.

    Here is that info:

    wordpress: 2.9.2

    bbPress: 1.0.2

    bbPress Plugin for WP: 1.0

    Here are the keys that are the same in wp/bp:





    In PB’s settings I also have:

    * WP’s auth_salt

    * WP’s logged_in_salt

    Both set to the WP values.

    @logart Hi, thanks for this useful information.
