[WordPress Integration] Stuck at what to enter at Step 2

  • yetanotherlogin



    This is the first time I’m setting up WordPress and bbPress, so it could be something very obvious, but from reading the tutorial, I couldn’t figure out what to enter at Step 2 – WordPress integration:

    CHECKED Add integration settings

    CHECKED Add cookie integration settings

    WordPress address (URL) This value is required to continue.


    Blog address (URL)


    WordPress “auth” cookie key


    FYI, on the test host, I have WP installed in /var/www/wordpress/ and bbPress in /var/www/bbpress. The two applications shared the same database in MySQL, since I assume it’s easier that way and they use a different prefix when creating tables.

    Considering this context, does someone know what to type above

    Thank you for any help.

    I’d strongly recommend this:

    It covers installation in more than 8 steps, and should help a fair bit :)



    Thansk Kevin for the link.

    I followed the whole procedure down to “3. Deep Integration > 8. Log into WP Dashboard”… but now, I can no longer log on (/wordpress/wp-login.php) :-/

    FWIW, it doesn’t say that the password is incorrect, but it loops back to Username/Password.

    Tried Chrome and Firefox, same result. I did empty the browser cache, as asked in the procedure, same result.

    FWIW2, I can still log on to bbPress as admin.

    Any idea why I can no longer log on to WP?

    BTW, when is “deep integration” needed? I’d simply like a link to the underlying bbPress forum to be displayed in the WordPress main UI.

    Thank you.



    To have WP send my admin password, I edited php.ini to use my ISP’s SMTP server instead of “localhost” (no SMTP server on this test host), restarted PHP-FastCGI, and clicked on the WP “Lost your password?”, but I get this:

    “The e-mail could not be sent.

    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function…”

    So can’t get the admin password back. Anyway, since it doesn’t complain about the password and just loops back, I assume it has to do with the WP/bbPress integration?



    I have wrote article about it
