  • If you installed it correctly, it should show your forum at the location that you setup for the forum. The admin path would be /bb-admin/


    It does not work. I will reinstall entire thing.

    Is my config correct for localhost?

    I might be enoying, but I demand less, then install on demand.

    I learn.

    I changed my WP password after installing this thing. Can it cause this problem .


    // ** MySQL settings ** //

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

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

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

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 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 = ‘http://localhost/wordpress/bbpress&#8217;; // Example: ‘;

    $bb->domain = ‘http://localhost&#8217;; // Example: ‘;


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

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

    /////Was empty

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘New bbPress Site’;

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

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // 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 = 0;

    // 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 = ‘336’; // 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 = ‘http:/localhost’; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // No trailing slash. Example: ‘;

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

    if ( !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

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

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


    It is like: localhost/wordpress/bbpress

    Your wordpress address at the bottom is http:/localhost and wouldn’t it be http://localhost/wordpress/ ? What is the url that you can access wordpress at? I am assuming that it is what I said with http://localhost/wordpress/. If that is the case, these would be the changes:

    $bb->wp_home = 'http://localhost/wordpress';
    $bb->wp_siteurl = 'http://localhost/wordpress';

    As well, if that is the actual URL that you use for wordpress, then these:

    $bb->domain = 'http://localhost/wordpress';
    $bb->path = '/bbpress/';

    Then, you have another problem and need to change to this:

    $bb->akismet_key = 'false';

    Try that and report back.


    The problem is that the system does not tell me, that I typed incorrect password.

    As long as you have the correct database information, try my changes.


    Should a bbP folder be physically located inside WP folder on my hard drive?

    That seems to be the easiest to integrate the 2 together, but not necessary.


    If you log in incorrectly it should take you to the ‘incorrect login’ page. It should always do this.

    Otherwise, force refresh by pressing Ctrl + F5. I found it an annoyingly simple solution when I was accessing the forums from somewhere other than the usual and I just couldn’t log in – turns out I was always logging in and it just cached the old, unlogged-in version of the page.

    They don’t have to be in the same folder, I for example have got them in different subdomains and have no problem.

    I changed all the settings. Now it is the same way I had it at first:

    Then I changed domain to the one it told me to, and it loaded as a page with no graphics, full of error messeges. I remember, that I installed it sucessfuly long ago, by installing it, then changing config to the correct settings.

    I saved the previous version of config, so it is not the worst.

    First Step

    Make sure you have everything (database information, email address, etc.) entered correctly in config.php before running this script.

    Your $bb->domain setting must only include the http:// and the domain name; it may not include any directories or path information.

    Current settings

    $bb->domain: http://localhost/wordp

    Now I did it the way I described above, I changed my config’s domain to the one you told me, after installation. Now I can get to my admin area, but I can not post a thread ’cause page does not exist.

    It is confusing.

    I try different variations, I get different outcomes, but I do not know, why it never works under a domain, that it requests during installation. This is why I do not trust open-source stuff. They never get debuged completely, since there is no fear to loose the profit.

    SMF is good, but it is not integratable with WP.

    Enigma is just a way to make SMF even bigger. Plug-in forums… I will use one instead of bbp

    Humans only live 328500 hrs. I allready wasted 20% of my life as a child. No mo. This # is too small.

    When the install is live on the internet, it seems to be easier to fix. The fact that this install of your is on a localhost can arrive as so many different problems. Check out the following posts:

    Are you testing? Is that why you are installing on your own computer? Do you have a host to test this out on?


    I am not testing, but editing.

    Sorry for being so harsh about the time that it takes to install bbP.

    I would use rs discuss, which I also cannot install on my freshly reinstalled xampp and WP.



    Here’s how to fix this problem: Download the plugin called Fix bbPress ( refresh, and that should fix your problem. It isn’t that you aren’t logging in, it’s just it doesn’t show that you did. Try logging in, then it will show the user name and password fields. Then refresh the page, and it will say you are logged in. Install that plugin though and that will fix your problem.
