    I tried to re-install bbPress but it wont go past after installing bb-config.php

    My main site is :

    In the database, the value is stored in the bb_topicmeta table. A record that has a meta_key of uri holds the value, I think. That is record #3 in my fresh installation. It might be different in yours. Just find the key of uri and the value is the one you want, I think.

    It’s worth noting here that you can also override the database value in your bb-config.php file. Just in case anyone can’t directly access their database.

    $bb->uri = '';
