    i’ve put buddypress in the plugins folder. inside buddypress folder is bp-activity folder etc.

    when i click activate in plugins, it loads http://rebelsforchrist.org/wordpress/wp-admin/plugins.php?activate=true&plugin_status=all&paged=1 and doesn’t show anything (blank white page).

    then plugins and every blog page shows nothing (blank white page). the only way i thought to restore was ftp’d and changed the directory from buddypress to buddypress1 and blog would work again as well as plugins page. i changed it back to buddypress. i don’t know why it won’t activate. that’s the first step from the readme after copying the files to the plugin directory i thought.

    thanks in advance for help!

    Who is your web host? Chances are this is a PHP version or a memory issue.

    Did you have BuddyPress 1.1 installed previously? Are you using WPMU or WP?

    I’ll admin to not knowing how phpinfo should look if not using apache, so we might need additional help here.

    no previous installs of BP. i’m not sure if it’s WP or WPMU. i’ve never seen a comparison, so assumed they were the same — sorry maybe i just have WP.

    “Thank you for creating with WordPress. | Documentation | Feedback Version 2.8.4″

    what’s the difference? i believe from the docs on this, i need WPMU.

    would an upgrade from WP to WPMU be easy?

    At the moment, it’s probably not as easy as we all wish it was. :/

    It’s best to start with WPMU if you can…

    If you have an existing site with plugins installed, it won’t be an easy transfer. If it’s just a normal WP install with no plugins, you can export your blog, install WPMU, and import the blog as your primary blog into the new site.

    BuddyPress doesn’t support WordPress. Make sure you have WPMU installed.

    I also have tried activating 1.1 and am getting the same type error.

    However, I am in fact using WPMU.

    After several tries, sometimes I get 500 internal server error.

    Installing from the plugins in the admin console simply won’t work.

    I am using 1and1.

    I cannot activate please help

    @forestwander-

    Your issue is not the same as the OP. I’ve replied to your issue on your other cross post.
