Unistalled buddypress and bbpress. Trying to reinstall bbpress problems

  • Daaaaaave


    Sorry if this is confusing. I installed buddypress through the wordpress plugins page. I then installed bbpress through buddypress. I have since uninstalled buddypress and bbpress and i am trying to now install bbpress on my server. Once loading all the files to my directory i then go to load the directory. The installing instructions do not come up i come to a bbpress page which shows “page not found”.

    I am guessing the old install of bbpress is interfering? maybe in the database?

    Thanks in advance.

    Do you have a /forums physical directory on your server? If so, try renaming it.

    Are you trying to install bbPress standalone (1.0.3) or bbPress Plugin (2.0 beta 2)?



    I tried changing the physical to something crazy. same problem.

    Trying standalone bbpress 1.0.3

    thanks for your help

    Remove the bb-config.php file at the root of your site. Chances are it’s getting in the way. Also there’s a meta entry you’ll most likely want to delete. If there’s anything in your wp_options table prefixed with “bb-” go ahead and delete those. Lastly, your bbPress install needs to exist in a folder that the server can access and that WordPress isn’t trying to control. This is typically a “forums” folder somewhere in your public_html folder, depending on your host.



    John removing the bb config file fixed it straight away.
