Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_activity_install() related to Plugin directory

    Upon upgrading to BP 1.1.2 on WPMU 2.8.6 I get this error

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

    The site doesn’t load but admin does.

    I dug through the folder structures to find that the old Plugins folder in wp-content was /plugins/ while the 2.8.6 folder is /mu-plugins/

    If I change the folder to mu-plugins I get this error on the home page:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function num_pages() on a non-object in /home/borumaco/public_html/wp-content/mu-plugins/comments-paged.php on line 134

    Now I’m lost. Any direction?

    The plugins folder should always be /plugins/.

    /mu-plugins/ are for plugins you want to run sitewide; these plugins are automatically activated; you generally never put regular WP plugins in there!

    I suggest starting your install over:

    If you’re upgrading, restore your backup DB and your previous MU files and read this:
