Get fatal error when trying to activate

    Hi,

    I get the error below when trying to activate buddypress:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7680 bytes) in /home2/themakin/public_html/becomeyou/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-blogs.php on line 600

    I have a blog hosted on bluehost.com. I recently created the blog so it is the most recent version of wordpress. I installed buddypress from within the admin panel and then when trying to activate, it gave me the error above (in fact, this is the second time, I tried and it gave me the same error before with a different line# – I think it was 102 before).

    Any ideas on what I can do?

    Thanks,

    Todd

    Seems really odd that your WPMU + BuddyPress installation somehow takes up over 30MB of memory.

    You could try upping the available memory to say, 40MB or so, and see if that helps? Do a search here (or Google) for php.ini and hopefully that should help you on your way. There are a few things you can put there to help increase the available memory for your hosting package.

    Basically you just make a file called php.ini and put it either in your WordPress root directory, or your wp-admin directory. I’m not sure it really makes a big difference, but I suppose it also depends where the errors are coming from mostly too.

    The php.ini already has a very high memory limit. I tried to activate again and it gave me the same line of code as the problem… any other ideas on why it’s not working and what i can do to get it to activate?

    Which version of WPMU are you running?

    Also, read this thread for more possible info on why you’re having issues with BlueHost.com

    Hi Jeff,

    I did a wordpress install (version 2.8) from inside the bluehost control panel. I’m assuming that was just the regular wordpress install and not wordpress MU. Could that be the issue I’m having? If so, what do I do to rectify it?

    Thanks so much

    I was wondering if you were using single-user WordPress.

    I’m assuming that was just the regular wordpress install and not wordpress MU. Could that be the issue I’m having? If so, what do I do to rectify it?

    BuddyPress currently works only with WordPress Mu. How do you rectify it? You install WPMU. Here are some more details on how to do that.

    Once WPMU is proeprly installed and working, you install BuddyPress.
