Does bbPress work with Windows Server 2008 r2?

    @tesicg

    I’ve installed bbPress on Windows Server 2008 r2, but some features don’t work.

    Could we fix it in some way or you don’t support Windows Server 2008 r2?

  • As long as you have the IIS Rewrite Module it should work fine, it’s the equivalent of Apaches mod_rewrite module, it’s been a while since I’ve looked at IIS but that’s the only issue I’m aware of for for bbPress and IIS.

    The mod-rewrite is enabled on Apache. Do you mean I should install IIS’ URL Rewrite module as well that is the mod-rewrite on Apache is not enough?

    By the way I use XAMPP.

    Here’s the list that contains some of the issues:

    – There is some message about issues with ports that Apache uses, but Apache started (green color in XAMPP).
    – Some words are in English and some are in Russian.
    – I can’t create new topic as anonymous user.

    On Windows 7 64-bit everything works fine.

    Apologies @tesicg, I presumed you were using IIS because Windows 2008 Server R2 😉

    Ignore the IIS suggestion I made, you’re using XAMPP so they would be useless.

    For translations check your WordPress updates page for any available translation updates, both bbPress 2.5.x (the current release) and upcoming 2.6.x releases are 100% translated into Russian: https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/ru/default/wp-plugins/bbpress

    There might have been a fix for “port conflicts” in the upcoming bbPress 2.6, could you try that and see if it is fixed please? https://bbpress.org/download/

    If 2.6 doesn’t fix it could you add details on whats different between your 2008 Server and Windows 7 install, strange that XAMPP works on one and not the other

    Thank you Stephen.

    On my local computer where everything worked fine, I’m trying to update WordPress in Russian, but got the following:

    Обновить WordPress

    Скачивание обновления из https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/ru_RU/wordpress-4.9.2.zip…

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 30 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\forum\wp-includes\Requests\Transport\cURL.php on line 463

    As you can see there is fatal error. What’s going on and how to fix it?

    Regarding Windows Server 2008 r2 computer, translation started working fine and only one, but important thing for us, still does not work – anonymous user can’t create new theme on forum.

    Please, take a look at the screen shot below.

    The translation of error message:

    ERROR: Are you sure you want to do it?

    The download issue was caused by wordpress.org migrated to new servers and a new data centre, and there were a few issues, they have switched back the affected servers I believe and this should be fixed.

    If you continue to see errors please make a comment on this #meta ticket

    I’ll look into the anonymous posting issue for you, are you using bbPress 2.5 or 2.6?

    I think this was fixed for bbPress 2.6, can you try using 2.6-RC-5, the download link is available on https://bbpress.org/download/

    After I’ve installed bbPress 2.6 the issue with creating new theme by anonymous user disappeared.

    Thank you very much.
