Installed WP 3.01 on localhost, BuddyPress 1.2.6 plugin install fails

  • I’m installing on my computer (MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.6). Did a fresh install of WordPress 3.01 into a subdirectory (san) of my web document root (/Library/WebServer/Documents). WordPress works fine (http://localhost/san gets me to it, etc). Can’t do an auto install of BuddyPress because my computer is not “on the web”. So I download the zip of BuddyPress 1.2.6, and move the unzipped BuddyPress folder to the wp-content/plugins directory. Then go to dashboard:plugins, and activate BuddyPress. Boom! Many many errors such as:

    “Notice: Undefined offset: 0 in /Library/WebServer/Documents/san/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-catchuri.php on line 85″

    Okay, my 6 minutes are up. This is not so easy.

    FYI, I went to a hosted site I admin and did an auto-install of BuddyPress – that worked just fine. So what’s the secret info I’m missing re my local install?

  • You have a high level of PHP warnings, or WP_DEBUG, set. We are aware of these notes and will fix them for the next big release.

    I gave up a long time ago rolling my own WordPress and BuddyPress installs directly on OS X. It was too much of a pain for very little benefit. I switched to using MAMP (the free version) and both install easily without issue.

    Paul, in php.ini I have
    `error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE`
    Where do I change WP_DEBUG? Ok, found it and changed it to false: now I don’t get the warnings.

    Jeff, yes, I like MAMP, but also wanted to avoid creating lots of copies of Apache and php et al – and I want to run on port 80 anyway… And that wouldn’t have touched the WP_DEBUG… but if it saves me hours… :-)

    Thanks, guys!

    I have a single Apache/PHP install (the default MAMP version) and simply use Apache’s virtual host directive to host 9 different WordPress development sites locally. They all have their own test domain (they do not use “localhost”), and they use the default Apache port (80) and MySQL port (3306). It’s simple to set up and manage. This is done with MAMP not MAMP Pro. If you don’t know how to do this, then MAMP Pro will do it for you.
