Buddypress Fatal error after automatic upgrade

    When I try to reactivate BP after automatically upgrading I get the following error:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_activity_install() (previously declared in /home/technope/public_html/arduino.za.net/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php:19) in /home/technope/public_html/arduino.za.net/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php on line 52

    I don’t know if my other actions would have resulted in this, but before upgrading BP I update WPMU I did the following.

    I deactivated the BP plugin and all other dependant plugins. But before clicking “upgrade automatically” I went to go and mark sum blogs and users as spam, because I had an attack of the spambots again. Then when clicking automatically upgrade it upgraded without any problems but when it was time to activate the plugin then the above fatal error occured.

    My BP site is running with a modified version of the parent theme which has worked fine since before the previous update.

    I am running WPMU 2.8.6 and upgraded BP from 1.1 to 1.1.3 (I might have missed an upgrade because I haven’t had time to work on the site in the last month or two)

    Now I tried reinstalling buddypress and I am still getting the problem. Fatal error with no indication of what the error is. Its messing up my site. Could it be a WPMU problem.

    Here is my post on another thread regarding the same issue: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/cannot-activate-bp-12-fatal-error-cannot-redeclare-bp_loader_activate

    How come nobody can give me any insite into whats going on. I’m seriously getting stuck and wanting to abandon buddypress for some other system. :(

    “Fatal error with no indication of what the error is.”

    Errors are usually suppressed on the front end. did you check your server’s error logs?

    “Here is my post on another thread regarding the same issue: http://buddypress.org/forums/topic/cannot-activate-bp-12-fatal-error-cannot-redeclare-bp_loader_activate

    The phrase in there with the big clue is “cannot redeclare” Which means it is being called twice.

    Which means likely – stab in the dark guess here – you have two copies of the plugin.

    “How come nobody can give me any insite into whats going on”

    because you have two posts within 7 hours during a timeframe where a large portion of the volunteers here are sleeping. :) They do that sometimes.

    Hi thanks. I will check it out. The reason I asked why nobody was helping was that I posted threads about this in the past month and they never got responded to so I have been patient.
