Reinstall more or less worked but can't create anything new etc.
Ok so I solved some of the problems I had by deactivating BP, deleting it, and manually deleting any tables prefaced with wp_bb or wp_bp.
I installed it from the plugin browser in WPMU 2.8.4 and followed these instructions in the plugin browser screen:
BuddyPress requires WordPress MU, it will not work on a single install of WordPress (yet).
— Plugins: —
Upload everything into the “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/” directory of your installation.
Activate BuddyPress in the “Plugins” admin panel using the “Activate Site Wide” or “Activate” link (both work).
— Themes: —
1. Move “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-sn-parent” and “/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default” to “/wp-content/themes/”
You must then login as an admin and head to the “Site Admin > Themes” directory and activate the default BuddyPress theme (bp-default).
Next, you will want to head to the “Appearance” menu and activate the BuddyPress default theme for the root blog of your WordPress MU installation.
— Upgrading from an earlier version: —
Overwrite the /plugins/buddypress/ directory with the latest version.
If you are using the default theme, move the themes in “wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/” to “wp-content/themes” and overwrite any existing themes.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you are no longer using the old two-theme system from BuddyPress 1.0, please make sure to delete your /wp-content/bp-themes/ folder to activate the new one-theme setup.
— Forums Support —
To enable forums please log in and head to “BuddyPress > Forums Setup” in the admin area.
Installation worked great in that everything shows up where it needs to, I’m not getting error messages or 404s.
I tried to test it out by editing my profile and creating a group.
No Base fields show up, under “Edit Profile” and Profile Field Setup in WPMU control panel shows nada. When I try to create a group I get “There was an error saving group details, please try again.”
I took a look at phpmyadmin, it created wp_bb tables but no wp_bp tables. So basically it installed. Sort of?
