I have deleted the old bbpress on my server bcuz it wouldnt work and i cleared out all my database and uploaded the new version of bbpress. now after i install and try to do anything all it says is “Already Installed. Try Upgrading.” nothing works at all.
Hope someone can help me. thanks!
I can’t tell where that error message is coming from. Is that the exact text?
now nothing is linking right. i didn’t even touch anything either. all links are broken and end up at the main page.
This happened to me as well during one of my many installs of BBpress. Make sure that you installed it from the correct directory from the start. For instance, mine was sitename/wp/bb and I installed it from sitename/bb. It worked, but it looked like that. Also, if you selected true in the permalinks section in your config, make sure you have the htaccess file in there. That should remedy the redirect problem…
Hope this helps….
And the error message?
In your bbPress’ config.php, did you set
$bb->pathor did you set
$bb->uri(the easier method that bbPress 0.8.2 allows)?
$bb->uri = 'http://www.bqtrademark.com/bbpress/';
in your config.php and remove from that file any lines referencing
that helped for the most part, but now the problem seems to exsist that the links are still broken http://www.bqtrademark.com/bbpress/
What does your bbPress’
.htaccessfile look like?
Have you read the documentation on setting up pretty permalinks?
yeah i read that but what seems to be the problem is that some links forget the /bbpress/ and it ends up broken. other links do it fine.
I really do need to know what your
.htaccessfile looks like in order to help you.
Also, there may be some issue with your bbPress running on http://www.bqtrademark.com and your WordPress running on bqtrademark.com
do you have an email or something that we can discuss this over?
I’m sorry, I can’t do support over email. Is the issue that you have information you need to give which is too private for these forums?
i was going to send you information and files you needed.
You can paste files into a pastebin if you like.
Then just paste the link here.
ok wat files were u needing to look at and where can i find them?
Is there a file in bbPress’ main directory called
.htaccess? Depending on how you’re accessing your server and because that file starts with a period, you may have to ensure that you are viewing hidden files when looking for that file.
If you find that file, paste its contents to a pastebin.
If you don’t, create a file with that name and put into it the text generated when you visit http://www.bqtrademark.com/bbpress/bb-admin/rewrite-rules.php
the .htaccess file isnt in the main folder and i try to create it and my computer automatically hides it. here is what the contents are:
RewriteRule ^forum/(.+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/forum.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^forum/(.+)/?$ /bbpress/forum.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^topic/(.+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/topic.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^topic/(.+)/?$ /bbpress/topic.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^tags/(.+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/tags.php?tag=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^tags/(.+)/?$ /bbpress/tags.php?tag=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^tags/?$ /bbpress/tags.php [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^profile/(.+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/profile.php?id=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^profile/(.+)/([a-z-]+)$ /bbpress/profile.php?id=$1&tab=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^profile/(.+)/([a-z-]+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/profile.php?id=$1&tab=$2&page=$3 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^profile/(.+)/?$ /bbpress/profile.php?id=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^view/([a-z-]+)/page/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/view.php?view=$1&page=$2 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^view/([a-z-]+)$ /bbpress/view.php?view=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^rss/$ /bbpress/rss.php [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^rss/forum/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/rss.php?forum=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^rss/topic/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/rss.php?topic=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^rss/tags/([a-z-]+)$ /bbpress/rss.php?tag=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^rss/profile/([0-9]+)$ /bbpress/rss.php?profile=$1 [L,QSA]
Do you have a (possibly hidden) .htaccess file in bbPress’ parent directory (one directory up from /bbpress)?
yep. in my main directory. want me to send that?
well how can i send it when my computer automatically hides it on download?
Go to Tools > Folder Options > View and select “Show hidden files and folders”. Then copy the contents into http://pastebin.ca/ and link to it.
Does editing your .htaccess to just having the following and nothing else work?:
Does that work? Having it of course in your /bbpress/ folder only so that it is not screwing up your wordpress .htaccess file. Does that work for your installation?
nope. i installed the bbpress already, it’s just that it is corrupting the links for some reason. for example a link such as http://bqtrademark.com/bbpress/topic/your-first-topic/?replies=1 goes straight to http://bqtrademark.com/
Try http://pastebin.ca/582386 as your main .htaccess file and delete the .htaccess file in the bbPress directory.
does anyone know how to make macs show hidden files? i save a .htaccess file and it disappears
Hey Brandon, this is completely unrelated, but my last name is Quigley as well. Are you in Ireland? If so, what county? I’m in NYC. Sorry about your troubles.
