  • When I want to install bbPress I get this message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<‘ in …../……/……../public_html/forum/bb-includes/backpress/class.wp-error.php on line 205

    So I can’t installe bbPress. What can I do about it?

    If you edited any files or are using any plugins or a custom theme, remove those for right now. Did you edit your keys in bb-config.php? Maybe there’s an error there? What version are you installing and where did you get it?

    If you are just installing a stock version, chances are it was not uploaded properly. This error does not occur in the default installation.

    I downloaded the latest stable version right here. And I didn’t do anything about it, only changed the name of the folder bbPress to forum.

    Do you mean themes and plugins for WordPress or bbPress?



    Plugins and themes for bbPress. WordPress doesn’t matter at this stage of installation.

    Are you installing bbPress as a WordPress plugin? bbPress is not a WordPress plugin.

    Please provide the link to where you downloaded the files.

    Did a new file copy to the server and stayed with bbpress as folder name, seems to work now!

    Thanks with helping me out!
