can’t access Admin page

  • hey guys

    i have managed to integrate bbpress into my wordpress install

    now I can’t seem to access the bbpress admin page. I get this error:

    Warning: main(../wp-blog-header.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /www/blog/bbpress/config.php on line 3

    Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘../wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /www/blog/bbpress/config.php on line 3

    Any ideas?

    Looks like you might need to post up your config file for us to figure it out. Be sure to take out the sensitive info (leave the syntax, just take out the passwords and junk)

    Hey Ardentfrost,

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to your reply – i really appreciate it!


    Here’s the config file:



    define('WP_BB', true);

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define('BBDB_NAME', '*******'); // 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 = '/bbpress/'; // Example: '/forums/'

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = 'Lumanation bbPress';

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

    $bb->admin_email = '********com';

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // 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 = 8;

    // 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 = 'wp_'; // 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 */

    define('BBPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/' );

    require_once( BBPATH . 'bb-settings.php' );


    Couple of things. I would try the first line with an absolute server path. Something like:


    ('www/blog/wp-blog-header.php'); ?>

    As well, I am sure you have an Akismet number, but if not, best to put it as:

    $bb->akismet_key = false;


    Hi Trent thanks for your help!

    i made those changes but still seem to get this error:

    Warning: main(www/blog/wp-blog-header.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/lumanati/www/blog/bbpress/config.php on line 3

    Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'www/blog/wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/lumanati/www/blog/bbpress/config.php on line 3
