Installation: Fatal Error

  • Stealth Employed


    I have tried integrating with my WP several times and triple checked my bb-config.php. IT’S ALL RIGHT. Here is the error I am receiving (replaced URL with XXXXX’s):

    Warning: require_once(/home/content/r/o/b/robe489/html/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bp-log.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-settings.php on line 107

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bp-log.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php’) in /XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-settings.php on line 107

    I tried adding PHP5 support to .htaccess and that didn’t do anything. Changed my cookie settings on WP and BB side to match twice. Please help!

    That very simple error means that the file is not there, or maybe it’s there but has wrong permissions.

    Is this file present:


    If not, FTP the files up there again maybe one was missed. I don’t think it has anything to do with WordPress because it’s bb-settings.php complaining about a missing bbPress file.

    I checked my directory and there is no ‘/XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.bp-log.php’. There is not a backpress folder in the bb-includes folder. I went to and verfified that it didn’t come with the bbpress download. At the bottom of that page it shows:

    Property svn:ignore set to






    is there supposed to be a backpress directory or is my bbpress installation supposed to access it from somewhere else?

    Also, here is line 107 of bb-settings.php if it helps:

    “require_once( BACKPRESS_PATH . ‘class.bp-log.php’ );”



    Interesting. I recall a while back that backpress had to be added manually, but I thought that was resolved. backpress has it’s own trac:

    Maybe you can grab it from there and create a backpress directory in bb-includes and put the files there? Maybe an svn:external failed? It’s a weird error that I have not seen before, at least not since the alpha versions of 1.0.



    I just checked out 1.0.2 via svn and I see backpress is included as an external:

    Checked out external at revision 191.

    It’s actually included in the packaged download here too:

    I don’t think using trac to grab the source is the same as actually downloading the package. Maybe that was the problem?

    You are correct. I downloaded it from and there it was. Strange that it doesn’t come with the .zip package from the trac site.

    On a new note there is now a new installation error:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-config.php:64) in /XXXXX/StealthEmployed/forum/bb-includes/ on line 232

    I have a feeling this is probably easier to fix than the last one. Any ideas?



    make sure you don’t have spaces before & after php tags in your config file



    Yah ashfame nailed it… if you google the exact text of the error, you’ll see lots of similar reports.

    Btw, what’s up with all the spammy tags on this post (free online games, online gaming)… did somebody add those besides the OP?

    I’ll check the config file to make sure the code is correct. I have no idea where all the spam tags came from. They’re pretty lame though. whoever it is, they are wasting tons of time!
