Cant log in – error message

  • I have installed bbpress in the following directory:

    When I log into the forum it sends me to the following address:

    and I get the following error message:

    “Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

    Now I don’t have a buddypress installation in my computer and this pathway is non existent on the server. I used to have a buddypress installation but decided that adding bbpress would better suit my needs. I removed the buddypress install from my cpanel and in my database prior to installing bbpress.

    Anyone have any great ideas of what i did wrong and how I can fix this?

    Thanks for any guidance you can provide

    It sounds like something still thinks buddypress exists. Maybe the uninstallation was not complete?


    Any ideas on how to fix this

    Ben L.


    With PHPMyAdmin, change the uri in the bb_meta table to the actual one.



    Ben L, does adding this to bb-config.php still work? (the value in bb-config.php overrides the value from the database):

    $bb->uri = '';

    Adding it to the bb-config.php also works, but it will prevent you from changing it in the admin.
