help! cannot get the install to work for bbpress

  • I’ve uploaded the zipped file to my WordPress directory, put it in a folder called forum and went to click on the link: to install it, but it does not work? Not sure why? Anyone? Help please, I’m new to installing bbPress and not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    Thank you

  • I should mention I followed steps below and get stuck on step 4. I visit the intended URL ( and I’m NOT greeted with a bbPress installer.

    Quick Instructions

    1.Download bbPress from the download page

    2.Upload the uncompressed files to your server

    3.Optionally upload language files to “my-languages” – You will have to create this directory

    4.Visit the intended URL of the bbPress site

    5.You will be greeted with the bbPress installer

    6.Follow the instructions in the installer

    7.Visit “Settings” in the admin area to customise your installation




    I am having the same exact problem. I don’t understand what it is I’ve done wrong, if anything.



    I want to confirm you guys downloaded a standalone version of bbPress instead of the plugin. I the version you are using 0.x, 1.x or 2.x?
