Fatal error when trying to activate

    Hi everyone, help is needed! When activating the plugin I get this error:

    Warning: require_once(/www/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /www/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/bp-loader.php on line 19

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/www/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php’) in /www/www/blog/wp-content/plugins/bp-loader.php on line 19

    Is there anything I can do with the code?

    help is appreciated!

    1) Is your web root actually /www/www?

    2) And is Buddypress installed here? /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/

    You are running the single-user version of WordPress–most likely WP 2.8. BuddyPress will not work with single-user WP.

    You must run WordPress Multiuser (aka WPMU or WordPress Mu) which can be downloaded from this link: http://mu.wordpress.org/download/

    Thanks for the reply, but I did install the MU version!

    Any other thoughts?

    No, my web is not just www, I erased the first two directories which are on my server for displaying purposes…

    Hum. Interesting. That error message is often associated with someone trying to run BuddyPress with the single-version WP. It would have made this issue a lot easier to resolve had that been the case!

    Okay, here are some additional questions (besides the ones asked by DJPaul):

    1. How (and from where) did you download WPMU?
    2. How did you install it?
    3. Was WPMU functioning properly before trying to install BuddyPress?
    4. Have you checked your server’s error logs for other errors? If there are errors, what are they?
    5. Do you have any other WPMU plugins installed and activated?

    I have the same type of problem. I downloaded the latest versions of both WPMU and BP and installed WPMU with no problem. I uploaded all of the BP files to the ‘plugins’ directory. When I try to activate it, I get this message:

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/mmallory/public_html/greenworldzone.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/mmallory/public_html/greenworldzone.com/wp-content/plugins/bp-loader.php on line 19

    Any thoughts?

    I just reinstalled BP using the plugin installer and it’s working fine.

    If you have any other BuddyPress-dependent plugins installed and activated, you must deactivate those before upgrading and reactivating BuddyPress. Once BP is upgraded and reactivated, you can then go back and reactivate the other BP-dependent plugins.

    Also, move the default themes outside of /BuddyPress/ before upgrading. Keeping the themes directory within BP should not cause issues in and of itself, but it is a good idea to move it out before reactivating BP.

    Thanks for all the fast replys, I will try to install BP via the plugin installer and get back to you all…

    Jeff, here are my answers anyway:

    1. How (and from where) did you download WPMU? mu.wordpress.org/

    2. How did you install it? via FTP

    3. Was WPMU functioning properly before trying to install BuddyPress? yes, I installed first, tested and then installed plugins to the plugins directory.

    4. Have you checked your server’s error logs for other errors? If there are errors, what are they? No I haven’t, let me check

    5. Do you have any other WPMU plugins installed and activated? no I don’t
