    Hi,

    I have just installed WordPress 2.9.2 and I installed Buddypress through the automatic plugin installer and I have activated the plugin, changed the permalink settings to Numeric, I have also activated the default Buddypress theme.

    When I click on any of the links (e.g. Activity, Members, Group, etc) I get a 404 Page Not Found.

    Could someone please help.

    Many Thanks

    tnx to my host he found that i i didnt have .htaccess file

    and you need to add wp rewrite IfModule . htaccess file

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    enjoy

    Hi Again,

    Thanks for the reply, I think it might be me being a bit dull.

    Here’s what I have done so far.

    I have created a .htaccess file with the information above and I have put it into my wordpress directory, in this case it’s /community, but it is still not working.

    Have I missed something?

    Use your main .htaccess file on your public_html directory and add that to the top of the file

    Hi,

    I have added the:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteBase /

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    to the top of the main site .htaccess but it is still not working.

    Any other ideas?

    @r-a-y

    You might need this at the top of your .htaccess as well:

    Options +FollowSymLinks -Indexes

    If you don’t have a similar line like this in your .htaccess, add it.

    @oneill1234-

    You have a subdirectory install of WordPress. So, the RewriteBase directive in the .htaccess file needs to point to that directory. Change this:

    RewriteBase /

    to this:

    RewriteBase /community

    ok, I think we are half way there now. I think the .htaccess has worked but I am now getting a 403 Access Denied Error, what files do I need to give permission too?

    Thanks for the help.

    @oneill1234

    right, the .htaccess is causing the 403 error but I cannot figure out why. I don’t know much about .htaccess. Why is installing Buddypress such a problem?

    It isn’t usually a problem in fact it’s rather straightforward normally. Not sure but it sounds as though you didn’t have correct writable permission for directories at install?

    .htaccess needs permissions set to 644 or 604; you might check what it has at present?

    I just checked the permissions for .htaccess and it was already set to 644.

    Many Thanks.
