    Update: I checked all the groups I’m the admin of. But each groups seems to have its own slug.

    Could be the problem. How do I check? I hovered over all 36 groups in the site and every time checked the URL in Firefox bottom status bar. The group URL showed up there.

    How can I find out the group without a slug?

    Thanks Jeff :). I’ve disabled the plugin now. I’ll observe the site for next two weeks. In the mean time, I wish to display slideshow in posts. Any suggestions on how to do that? Any plugin that is known to work well?

    I have the Next Gen Gallary plugin installed. Is it causing all the problem?

    Can anyone tell me how do I prevent this database related bug from occurring again?

    Thanks for response, John!

    I remember that I had repaired & optimized the tables earlier when the issue popped up for the first time.

    BP should have run fine but the error popped up again. I already have about 2800+ members and the number of tables in database is quite large.

    Shall I regularly keep optimizing the tables to prevent this? Or anything else I should do?

    I don’t think I’ve found a permanent fix to the problem yet.

    Hi Burt,

    Yes, the site is up and running now. But, how can I prevent this problem from occuring in future?

    It already happened twice and now I’m sure it’s got something to do with the database. Can there be a SQL script to fix such problem?

    I found something strange:

    I logged on to my database and repaired & optmized BP/WPMU tables. I logged in again and voila – I’m into my wordpress ADMIN PANEL !

    WOW!

    Ok, now a quick question:

    In order to fix the problem I had removed the BP (directory) and themes. The database is intact with all the data. Shall I install BP from the plugin browser or shall I manually upload directories using FTP?

    If I install through plugin browser, will BP create new (thus duplicate) tables in database?

    Update: My webhost suggested I should make an entry to the php.ini file and add open_basedir settings.

    What am I supposed to do exactly?

    @ Burt:

    It might be. The site was running fine and out of nowhere, the problem began occuring. To answer your questions:

    [Before the problem came up] -

    Does bp live in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress? (not /mu-plugins)?

    -> Yes. Absolutely. I’m aware that post RC1 BP got shirted to plugins directory. It was & is in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress folder.

    Have you activated bp sitewide?

    -> Yes. The plugin was active sitewide and everything was working fine.

    Does it activate properly?

    -> Yep. Users could perform all the activities.

    I’m facing a strange problem. I’m running WPMU 2.7.1 (latest) and when I enter my admin credentials, I get logged in as a normal user. Therefore, I do not see ‘plugins’ section or ‘buddypress’ in the admin panel. Also, I’m unable to activate/deactivate themes.

    To fix this. I’ve removed BP (Plugins and Themes) using FTP. But the problem still persists. No admin options for me! What’s going wrong now? :(

    Guys, the nasty error is BACK. I’m hating it. This time I’m VERY sure it’s not a my host’s fault (its’ Media Temple).

    Google this: “Warning: require(BP_PLUGIN_DIR/bp-core/bp-core-signup.php)” and you get hell lot number of sites that have the same error.

    Possibly a bug in BuddyPress? Please fix this! I’m beginning to bang my head on the wall now.

    Hello everyone!

    First of all, thank you for your responses. The problem is now solved. However, I don’t know how! I wrote to the web host describing the problem and to the best of my guess, they changed few PHP.INI settings [Don't know how it got messed?]

    The system did not have bbpress. I’ve upgraded buddypress to latest stable and everything seems to be working fine now.

    To answer the questions :-

    1. Are you running WPMU 2.7.1 or WordPress 2.8? You mention that you were running WPMU before. Did you upgrade to the beta version of WPMU 2.8 from trunk? Or, did you accidentally upgrade to WP 2.8? WPMU 2.8 is not yet in public release.

    -> I did not upgrade accidently. In fact, one of the members reported that there was an error. The system was running fine with WPMU 2.7.1 and BP 1.0 (the first stable release) and then suddenly the error popped up.

    2. What other plugins besides BP do you have activated? Have you tried removing them all except BP and see if you can get back to the plugins page?

    -> I do not have any other plugin than BP.

    3. Have you tried removing BP and then seeing if the plugins page returns? If it does, then deactivate all other plugins and reinstall BP. What happens?

    -> No, I didn’t try that. I could not deactivate any plugins, because I couldn’t see the plugins in the admin panel!

    From the overall experience, it looks like the issue was with me signing in as site-admin but ending up in blog admin panel (anyone knows why this happened?)

    I think I’m one step closer now:

    I verified, when I log in as a normal user, I don’t see wordpress version in the bottom of admin panel.

    So in my current status, I’m NOT getting logged in as an administrator!

    Can anyone tell me how do I login as an admin? {PS: I’m not a novice, and have performed admin functions many times. However, I think I’m forcefully being logged in as a non-admin even when I enter admin credentials}

    Update:

    I tried to edit a user from the admin panel – and I get message “You do not have permission to edit this user”.

    Now, how can I be so sure that I’m logged in as site admin and not ‘blog’ admin?

    Yes burt, I’m logged in as a site-admin. Using the same username and password that I used for site admin. Don’t know what’s going wrong with me today.

    This is really strange :( . I overwrote all the wordpress installation files but still don’t see the ‘plugins’ option in the admin panel.

    Also, even though the default theme is there, I can only see the default buddypress theme in ‘active’ theme. Other installed themes are not available.

    “Buddypres” option is also missing from the left sidebar of admin panel.

    Hello Burt, very good to see your response.

    Did you rename the buddypress directory? You can’t

    => no, I didn’t.

    Is bp active sitewide in the plugins page?

    => I can’t see plugins option in the admin panel even if I’m logged in as an admin.

    No, I didn’t do anything. I got a call from one of the members that the site’s showing some error message.

    Adding to the observations above, I can’t see the various themes installed as well. :(

    Right now, I’m overwriting my wpmu files with 2.7.1 and see if I see the ‘Plugins’ menu in the admin panel.

    I’m keeping the config.php file intact.

    Buddypress directories are all there. i checked. I’ve reinstalled WPMU and now backing up buddypress folders before installing the latest version of buddypress.. No I didn’t perform any upgrades/tweaks recently. They were done in past and the site ran fine for weeks before this nasty error appeared.

    @Burt:

    Just cleared the cache. Now the fonts look bigger than they should normally be. Yep, the site looks nicer in IE8 & Chrome ;) .

    But this is really serious. Can someone fix this on priority? please?

    PS: Shall I upgrade the theme on my 1.0 bp installation? Will it work?

    Adding the screenshot to the post: http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9677/rknecdistortion.jpg

    The whole thing looked neat & clean earlier.

    Note: The site still looks perfect in Chrome & IE 7 and IE 8.

    Do I need to tweak something to make it look good in FF 3.5?

    Just a small question:

    What would be the normal procedure to upgrade from RC2-> Stable (1.0)
