    I doubt I can help much, but I’m sure whoever does help will need more details. Here are a few follow up questions for you.

    How did you try to install buddypress, exactly? Did you add the plugin from wp-admin or by uploading to the plugins directory via ftp? Were you able to activate the buddypress plugin? i.e., when you say you just “tried to install” it, is that because it gave some error directly (and therefore you never saw buddypress in action at all or altered the default settings), or because you haven’t been able to log into wordpress since then?

    Hopefully with some more details, one of the generous wp/bp gurus on here will be able to sort you out.

    If you simply downloaded and installed buddypress via admin screen… to get back to your “regular” site…you’ll need to go in to your site via FTP (or server backend like cpanel) and delete the entire “buddypress” plugin. This would be in the xxx/wp-content/plugins/BUDDYPRESS

    Select the buddypress folder and delete it. The plugin will force WP to disengage it and your site should be back where you were before you started this fun…

    @Pisanojm – thanks so much! that worked, i can get back into my site without the error and it was easy to do. now i’m going to try downloading buddypress again and am keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll work this time.
