Key Master could not be created!

  • I seem to have made a terrible booboo. I installed a clean wordpress mu 2.84a and than tried to install bbpress 1.0.2 with integration… I went to the last step and entered the same admin password for wordpress mu and I got Key Master could not be created! At this point it was completed but I went back to try to correct with a proper forum account and I get the “bbpress already installed ” message…

    Anyone know a simple fix besides reinstalling bbpress?

  • I made the same mistake. It would be a great idea to indicate “You must choose a NEW admin, that doen’t exist yet” at this point of the installation.

    I fixed it by reinstalling bbpress but I needed to clean the database first :

    – I removed the bb-config.php file

    – I looked into the database (using the hosting service tools) and removed all the tables starting with bb_

    – then I started back the installation.

    I guess you can do it another way, without reinstalling : the problem is that you have bbpress installed without any administrator. You can define one manually in the database (using the hosting service tools) :

    – the table wp_users contains the users (I integrated bbp and wp, else I suppose there should be a bb_users, but then we shouldn’t have this error…)

    have a look at it and remember the ID of the user you want to put keymaster (for me, it’s 1)

    – the table wp_usermeta contains some values about the users.

    add a new line containing :

    * umeta_id : a non-used umeta_id

    * user_id : the ID of the user (1 for me)

    * meta_key : bb_capabilities

    * meta_value : a:1:{s:9:"keymaster";b:1;} (I don’t know what it means)

    – then try to connect to your forum and look if you can administrate it !

    Can someone says if it works ?

    Oh My! Thanks mazzhe! you saved my day! :)
