Call to undefined function:

  • kennethhung


    Hi, first of all, Thank You For Doing This :-)

    I uploaded the folder and trying to run the install.php (, and all I got is this:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: bb_install_header() in /home/2206/domains/ on line 11

    Any Clues?

    I triple check the dbName, user, password, directory and all that jazz, here’s my config.php:


    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘db2206_gaszappers’); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘********’); // Your MySQL username

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘*********’); // …and password

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change this value

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // If your bbPress URL is , the examples would be correct.

    // Adjust the domain and path to suit your actual URL.

    // Just the domain name; no directories or path. There should be no trailing slash here.

    $bb->domain = ‘;; // Example: ‘;

    // There should be both a leading and trailing slash here. ‘/’ is fine if the site is in root.

    $bb->path = ‘/forum/’; // Example: ‘/forums/’

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘GAS ZAPPERS Development Forum’;

    // This must be set before running the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = true;

    // The number of topics that show on each page.

    $bb->page_topics = 30;

    // A user can edit a post for this many minutes after submitting.

    $bb->edit_lock = 60;

    // Your timezone offset. Example: -7 for Pacific Daylight Time.

    $bb->gmt_offset = -4;

    // Change this to localize bbPress. A corresponding MO file for the

    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.

    // For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to ‘de’

    // to enable German language support.

    define(‘BBLANG’, ”);

    // Your Akismet Key. You do not need a key to run bbPress, but if you want to take advantage

    // of Akismet’s powerful spam blocking, you’ll need one. You can get an Akismet key at


    $bb->akismet_key = ‘***************’; // Example: ‘0123456789ab’

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave the rest as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ”; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash. Example: ‘;

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ”; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // No trailing slash. Example: ‘;

    /* Stop editing */

    if ( !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

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

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

    Darn it….didn’t see this as I was gone for the last week (almost) and we lost one to phpBB. Sorry about that Kenneth! I would be happy to help if you are looking to come back!


    Hey Trent!

    Don’t worry! I got it all figured out, it is because I didn’t setup a new database for bbPress (I use the same one as my WordPress)

    Indeed, I did install phpBB and runs it for a week, not only I instantly start having spam, and the interface is just too busy to look at, I love the bbPress, it is simple, elegant and so fast…

    Cool cool, you can check mine out at:

    Excellent Kenneth! Welcome back and great job on that template!
