New Installation Problem

  • Hi,

    Newbie setting up bbpress with integration to wordpress but coming across a problem.

    Inatalled latest version of WordPress on Wednesday and BBpress yesterday but BBpress gives the following error when starting:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /websites/LinuxPackage03/xp/er/ie/ on line 28

    Line 28 of my bb-config.php file is:

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

    My forum site is:

    Any help resolving this would be welcome.

    Many thanks

    My guess is that there is a problem in your bb-config.php on the line right before line 28. The problem shows up on line 28 because the previous line doesn’t have the proper syntax. I think the problem is in the line with the BB_SECRET_KEY – maybe you have a single quote or back slash in there that’s not properly escaped. If you use a text editor that has syntax highlighter, you should be able to see the problem with the syntax.

    Also, what version of bbPress did you install?
