    Hi All,

    I have tried to install BP 1.1.2 on WPMU 2.8.5.2 clean install.

    After activate BP the blank screen appears. I have tried several reinstall without any luck.

    This is a Hungarian internet provider and here is the phpinfo: http://openscope.org/phpinfo

    thanks in advance your help

    have you copied the buddypress themes to themes folder and activated default theme.

    Does your wpmu works before activating the buddypress.

    Please have a look here

    after few test maybe I could localize the issue:

    - after activate the theme and the plugin everything goes blank

    - if I remove al coockies regarding the site I can see the start page as you can see here: http://openscope.org/projects/

    - after login it goes blank again everything

    Looks like it isn’t just logging in, but your members and /blog pages white screen also. Did those files get uploaded correctly? Do you have any errors in your server error log? White screens are hard to trouble shoot, but your best source on what’s happening is in your error logs.

    Thanks for the response. Uploaded several times, I am not sure how can I be sure everything is fine with the files… but I think they are ok.

    Unfortunately the apache log is empty and I have no error messages. If you need any other error log, lease let me know.

    thanks

    after deeper investigation:

    [Wed Nov 04 22:11:56 2009] [notice] child pid 14465 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

    [Wed Nov 04 22:11:56 2009] [notice] child pid 5428 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)

    maybe this is related to my problem, so I request an apache upgrade at ISP and they will take it on next week… I will let you know the result.

    So, I guess we can assume that you are also on the same server as the OP which would mean that you have the exact same server log files. Of course not. Have you actually checked your server’s log files to see if there are any errors?

    We spend a lot of time helping others so we expect people with issues to spend a little of their time providing us with details about their own, unique operating setup.

    Have you tried deactivating BuddyPress, deleting the contents of the /wp-content/buddypress/ directory, and then reinstalling and reactivating?

    Jeff Sayre.

    Nothing in log files.

    I deleted buddypress, reinstalled it some times. Also i tried to install other languages versions, still nothing.

    Even if i put error_reporting(1+2+4+8); in index.php it white screen.

    Okay, just to make sure, you are running WordPress Mu and not single-version WP, correct?

    Since above you indicate that this is a clean install, I would suggest starting over from scratch once more. This means deleting the MySQL DB ( I assume that there is no data worth saving since you said that this is the first time you had installed WPMU). Next, reinstall WPMU and fully test it before installing BuddyPress. Once you’ve determined WPMU is functioning properly, then install and activate BP. Choose the default BP theme. Do not install any other plugins until you have verified that BP is functioning properly.

    To make sure that you install both WPMU and BP properly, read the readme.txt files that come with each application.

    same problem here,

    I installed it clean and like the readme.txt describes.

    After installing wordpress mu, it all works fine.

    When activating buddypress it goes blank, i tried to load the main site and it was blank.

    After deleting the cookies i can view all the pages, but when i try to login it goes blank.

    so i think it’s a problem with the cookie handling/creating.

    if others could test this too we maybe could isolate the problem

    thanks

    Hi,

    I was experiencing a similar problem – try checking to see if there are any tables in your database starting with wp_bp:

    wp_bp_activity etc etc…

    I think buddypress needs these tables to work and for some reason they are not being created. I copied the database structure from a working install of BP (44 tables) into the broken install – which only had 17 tables and things seem to be working.

    Hi all,

    I am also having the same problem and I am short on time with my project. I told my client I could offer him a better site for his money, and I am stuck with this problem. I have checked my database and cant find any tables for buddypress there. It is a fresh install of BP 1.1.2 on WPMU 2.8.5.2. I have tried the htaccess modifications – no change. I have reinstalled both WPMU and buddypress severally with the same problem of blank page. My webhost is hostforweb.

    @chrisk2020 I was wondering how I could get to install the database manually. I don’t have a previous install.

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you for the continued support by the buddypress dev team and everyone in this forum.

    If it wasn’t obvious, for every person who reports a problem, we need this information. Saying that you have the “same problem” is possible but unlikely.

    If BP didn’t create its tables on activation, delete everything and try again — in a totally clean database (if only for testing purposes) with new files. Jeff’s elaborated on this point above. Something must have done to stop the install scripts running correctly; either a mistake on your part or an error on your server. Quite possibly if you are trying to use WPMU/BP on a virtual hosted server, you are going to quickly exceed memory and execution limits.

    Manually installing the BuddyPress tables is only putting a band-aid over whatever the source of your original problem is; most likely that problem will bite you later.

    Thank you DJPaul,

    I have deleted and reinstalled both WPMU and buddypress about 8 times over the past 3 days and I get the same problem.

    I have gone through this thread and think the problem is not different.

    I am only looking for a solution that works.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    @djpaul – sorry didn’t mean to be giving bad advice just trying to give a heads up to a possible symptom/solution for frustrated folks to investigate.

    the symptoms of my problem were the same as outlined in the initial post. My operating setup seems very similar to @kkemenczy and @duna1921

    (On the logic that every server setup is different – which I appreciate is true, everyone seeking help – even on the same problem would need to start a dedicated forum topic?)

    I have been searching for a solution for weeks – following all the advice from many threads on these and other forums. I have re-installed many times, checked .htaccess, php.ini memory, ensured mod_rewrite is working… just trying to help by posting my findings.

    DB tables not being created is an odd one. On a pristine, virgin WPMU setup, when installing BuddyPress and clicking ‘activate sitewide’ (or whatever it is) in the admin plugin page, it obviously tells WPMU to load this plugin on each page load from then on.

    What BuddyPress does as soon as it is included (i.e. when the admin page reloads itself to show you that the ‘plugin has been activated’ successfully), is check to see if certain values exist in the wp_sitemeta DB table – i.e. bp-activity-db-version, bp-core-db-version and so on. If those aren’t set, then the SQL is run to create the database tables.

    As an aside, this is what people run into when they delete the BuddyPress plugin files and DB tables in an attempt to “reinstall” BuddyPress – the tables are never recreated because those database records in wp_sitemeta still exist (so BuddyPress thinks it is still installed). Bit of a long shot but none of you have done this?
