Problem with the forum setup of a bbPress forum into BuddyPress
I installed bbPress into WordPress/BuddyPress site. Following the bbPress installation instructions, I uploaded bbPress into a folder and renamed it “forum.”
I pointed my browser to the install page and filled out the three step form and all seemed to go well. I got an email from the bbPress installer stating that my installation was successful.
This is my issue:
In order to integrate bbPress into my WordPress/BuddyPress site, I need to use the “Forum Setup” option under the BuddyPress panel in the WordPress admin area. When I attempted to use the option offered to me labeled “Use an existing bbPress installation” I am asked for the location of my bb-config.php file. When I put in the path, I get this message:
“The bb-config.php file was not found at that location, please try again.”
I have tried using the path from the root of my server with and without using the actual bb-config.php file name.
I have tried using the absolute path using my domain name with and without the file name above and with and without the “.www” in the path.
I cannot think of any more possible ways to direct my site to know where bb-config.php is located. I can see it on the server and can open it. Nothing I can see is out of place.
Anyone familiar with this issue? Thanks.
