bbPress as Standalone

    Hi there. I discovered bbPress circa 2007. I might have updated the version since, and most likely did. I probably stopped using it by 2010. I don’t know how to even determine what version it is (filename ?).

    At that time, I was not using WordPress on that domain. I used bbPress as a standalone forum software.

    Bottom line: is it possible to upgrade that installation? What would be my steps to at least salvage the db, perhaps install a WordPress and re-use the old bbPress. Quite honestly, just curious.

    bbpress now requires wordpress, but you can set these two up with bbpress version 2.x, and then import the bbpress1 forum

    so once installed go to

    dashboard>tools>forums>import forums and select bbpress1

    Thank you!

    I think I get what you’re saying, but I’m not quite following what to do. I’m sure it’s easy. πŸ™‚

    Would I just use– for example– an existing WP installation, and install the latest bbPress as a plugin? Then, once installed in WP as a plugin, I go to bbPress, dashboard > tools > … ?

    I presume there will be an “update database” process. Cool. This will be interesting. Backup, of course. πŸ™‚

    Thanks!
