Problems Installing BBPress
Have you seen this?
I have followed the correct procedure of installation. But i dont get the dropdown menu to choose “admin”. I had proceeded by manually typing admin
I have the same problem as Leadingminds – I don’t get the dropdown menu to choose ‘admin’ and when I type in admin I get the same keymaster error.
Which versions of bbPress are you both using?
Should be using bbPress 1.0 alpha 6.
If you don’t want to believe me, that’s okay, but that doesn’t make me any less right.
bbPress .9 may integrate with BuddyPress 1.0, but it isn’t the recommended version and it will be more difficult to make them work nicely together.
I removed 0.9 Brubeck and replaced it with 1.0 alpha 6, and it all seems to be working fine now…I guess I need to live on the edge a bit more…
Still the problems contnues with me. Im not getting dropdown user “admin”
where do I get the download for 1.0 alpha 6..
Is that the 1.0 version on bbpress.org that says I shouldnt use on a live site?
Yeh, I’ve got this problem as well – can’t register the bbpress key-master as admin because it says i already have a user named admin (in buddypress)
I’m using 1.0-rc-2 – sorry to be dumb but is this the same as 1.0 alpha 6? If it isn’t where can i find the alpha one? I can’t find it on the bbpress site.
(Btw, I’m using buddypress 1.0.1 and WPMU 2.7.1).
Thanks if anyone can let me know. This integration is proving a challenge!!!
I’m using 1.0-rc-2 – sorry to be dumb but is this the same as 1.0 alpha 6?
No. They are different. RC2 is the 2nd release candidate of version 1.0. It is a newer release. But, I believe it is still recommended to use the alpha6 release at this time.
You can find it in the repository here: http://svn.automattic.com/bbpress/tags/1.0-alpha-6/
Actually RC2 works just fine, but Cozzie I encountered a similar problem when installing it as well, although I could not trace back for the life of me what caused it.
Cozzie, uninstall bbPress from your server (delete the files and remove the database tables starting with “bb_” and try the install again.
Remember to upload your bbPress files from your harddrive, and not from inside the zip file directly. I’ve had some issues doing that in the past with various FTP programs not uploading some files correctly.
Actually RC2 works just fine
That’s good to know. I’m working on the premise of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” I’m waiting to upgrade until the public release.
RC2 is basically the public release, but it’s missing some admin panel styling. Functionally speaking though, it’s complete pending any new bugs, etc.
@cozzie, also, try deleting any of your site cookies before you install bbPress. It’s possible that it’s seeing something left over from a previous attempt and seeing you as logged in when you’re not, or seeing you logged in as a non-admin.
Thanks a lot Jeff and John James!
I went with alpha in the end because I don’t think my ftp was deleting all the files
