    Ok. So I uninstalled BuddyPress on my production community WP site. I want to reinstall it. I can not get the installation wizard to come back up. Can I mannually navigate to the installation wizard and if so, what is the address?

    Also, what is the best way to reinstall BuddyPress?

    Thanks.

    You can delete the wp-config.php file and you will get the installation wizard back without losing all your data. If you need to adjust for a domain name change or subdirectory installation change you can do so by exporting a csv and searching for the old install location (domain and subdirectory). Then just replace that with the new URL and import the csv to a clean DB. You will still have all your data this way.

    Hope this helps.

    @ffadler – open up your favorite database manager, and search the options tables for anything that looks like ‘bp-db-version’

    We’ve changed the option key over the years, so it’s possible something is someplace it’s not supposed to be anymore.
