Installation won’t launch.

  • Hey everyone,

    I need to pick your brains. I have uploaded bbPress in a folder called “forums” within “wp02” (WordPress folder). I am using the same MySQL username and database info that WordPress uses since I want to integrate it. However, I’ve gone over config.php and I can’t seem to find an error. Can anyone offer assistance? Thanks.

    // ** MySQL settings ** //

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘unrprus1_wp02’); // The name of the database

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘unrprus1_John’); // Your MySQL username

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

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’); // 99% chance you won’t need to change these last few

    define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’); // If you are *upgrading*, and your old config.php does

    define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ”); // not have these two contstants in them, DO NOT define them

    // If you are installing for the first time, leave them here

    // Change the prefix if you want to have multiple forums in a single database.

    $bb_table_prefix = ‘bb_’; // Only letters, numbers and underscores please!

    // The full URL of your bbPress install

    $bb->uri = ‘;;

    // What are you going to call me?

    $bb->name = ‘Message Board’;

    // This must be set before you run the install script.

    $bb->admin_email = ‘’;

    // Set to true if you want pretty permalinks, set to ‘slugs’ if you want to use slug based pretty permalinks.

    $bb->mod_rewrite = false;

    // 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 = -7;

    // 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’, ”);

    // The rest is only useful if you are integrating bbPress with WordPress.

    // If you’re not, just leave it as it is.

    $bb->wp_table_prefix = ‘wp_’; // WordPress table prefix. Example: ‘wp_’;

    $bb->wp_home = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: Blog address (URL) // Example: ‘;

    $bb->wp_siteurl = ‘;; // WordPress – Options->General: WordPress address (URL) // Example: ‘;

    /* Stop editing */

    if ( !defined(‘BBPATH’) )

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

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


    Okay, wow. It looks like I may have figured it out. All I did was set Permalinks to default within WordPress 2.3 and the installation came up. Sweet!

    Hey guys, I’m getting some new errors.. the config.php is still the same.

    This is what’s coming up:

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: Access denied for user ‘unrprus1’@’localhost’ (using password: NO) in /home/unrprus1/public_html/wp02/forums/bb-includes/db-mysqli.php on line 80

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info() [function.mysql-get-server-info]: A link to the server could not be established in /home/unrprus1/public_html/wp02/forums/bb-includes/db-mysqli.php on line 80

    P.S. There is no white space before the “<?php” tag.

    This information helped me with the above situation.

    Make the changes per 745c.diff and you’ll be set.

    Thanks for a great program, Trent!
