WordPress Integration Shared Databases
My goal is to share one DB between wp and bbpress, one registration, seamless for users. The process of accomplishing this seems to have changed.
There’s all sorts of documentation on this topic and I’ve spent the last five hours trying to find my answer before bothering the good people of the internet, so I would greatly appreciate a hand now. It would appear that in recent changes, bb-config.php no longer exists? Installation process where you can fill out DB details in an easy form process seems to be gone?
So the settings must be in a config file somewhere! This infamous “WordPress Integration” section must be somewhere!
I’m using WordPress 3.5.1 and BBpress 2.2.4
bbPress 2.x is a plugin for WordPress just like any ‘other’ WordPress plugin and is no longer a ‘stand alone’ web app needing a bb-config.php. Everything is stored in the main WP database primarily using ‘Custom Post Types’ for the forum bits and all user bits are just WP users.
(Beware of any ‘legacy’ and/or posts ~2 years old in regard to bbPress as these typically refer to the old ‘Stand Alone’ version)
@netweb Thank you for your response!
I guess then my issue is about it not recognizing users are logged in already, then. I will look more into this!
I finally figured out what it was!
Wordpress is installed like this:
But my website is in the root like this:
Therefore, the cookies were not accessible across the board.
