    Due to a lot of problems, I decided to use original WPMU instead of Buddypress but I want to know how to uninstall Buddypress. just delete the files?

    Thanks in advance.

    1) deactivate the plugins

    2) removing them

    3) remove themes

    OPTIONAL:

    4) Remove wp_bp_* tables

    Say hello to BuddyPress :)

    I followed the steps above:

    Deactivate the plugin

    Removed the plugin

    Removed theme from public_html/wp_content/themes and from public_html/wp_content

    I did not remove the tables from the DB.

    I can’t access mydomain.com, it’s just blank. I can however access the admin. Please help.

    Also, if I wish to re-install BP at a later date will leaving the tables from your step 4 be an issue with a new install?

    Thanks

    Omgitsrfb – you said your domain was just blank then site up and running. What did you do to get it working again?

    I’d also like to know if tables need to be deleted and if that will affect a re-install of BP in the future?

    He probably forgot to change the theme away from buddypress after deleting it. Leaving the tables does cause a problem, because then when you reinstall all the settings are still saved.
