    I just read in a comment thread that buddypress does not work on a stand alone wp install.

    why didn’t you say so in the first place? I wouldn’t have spent a day fiddling with it and wondering why I can’t get it to work.

    I think many folks use their own wp install. perhaps budddypress should upgrade to a wordpress compatible version.

    :-)

    david here again. I just added buddypress to another page http://blog.davidhthomas.net/discussions and it is functional.

    It’s strange that is is touted as a “plugin” when it’s really a new wordpress install.

    Please correct any of this info if it’s wrong, so I can use buddypress in the most flexible way possible.

    thanks,

    david

    It is a plugin for wpmu, since you have to install and use it as any other plugin. And yes, if you use a wordpress single install, you will have to switch over too wpmu first.

    They plan on making it available for single installs, but don’t hope on that anytime soon.

    Now that I know what WP MU is, can’t I install it to replace my stand alone platform?? (and then upload the databases to the new install)

    hi David

    No you can not do it in that way.You need to follow the process for migrating from wordpress to wordpress mu.

    1.Export your posts/pages

    2.take a backup of your wp-content directory

    3.Take a backup of database(in case you need it to revert back)

    4.remove the wp from server and install wpmu

    5.Import the posts from your export file

    6.Upload the uploads ,themes directory to wp-content/ in your new installation

    If you have a website with thousands of posts,then export import may be trouble.you may follow this instructions in that case

    Hopefully it helps.
