bbPress Installation

  • Well, I’ve been using phpbb for some time, and as WordPress is so good, I’ve decided to give bbPress a try. And as phpbb is full of spams I just can’t handle… well…

    I’ve read the installation instruction, and check if it has the requirements… and it has. So uploaded the bbPress to my directory and when try to run the installer:

    “An old config.php file has been detected in your installation. You should remove it and run the installer again. You can use the same database connection details if you do.”

    What I’ve tried to to:

    Delete the “bb-config-sample.php”

    Rename the “bb-config-sampl.phpe” to “bb-config.php”

    Nothing happens. Still the same message. Does anyone know how to help me?

    Thank you,

    Newton Uzeda

    Is there a file called config.php in the bbpress directory or one directory UP? Either of those two things will stop the installer. If you find one, temporarily rename that file and start the installation again.
