    Buddypress seems to have written over my wordpress database when I tried to install it. Normally I assume this is supposed to be normal but my theme was not compatible so it did not install. Now I want my original wordpress database back. Is there a way I can do this?
    Thanks much

    == Buddypress seems to have written over my wordpress database ==

    @roclimb BuddyPress creates tables in database and does not overwrite WP DB tables..

    Just deactivate BuddyPress and BP plugins from wp-admin. If you cannot access your wp-admin, rename buddypress plugin folder via FTP/sFTP or control panel in server. See also http://codex.buddypress.org/troubleshooting/

    I don’t think thats the case here because every single table in my database says pressfix in front of the name.
    Buddypress crashed my site so I had to delete the folders from my wordpress folder manually. I am only on a localhost MAMP environment not live with it. I installed budypress it crashed my admin and site so I went into the folder where buddy press folder was located and deleted it. No the site works and admin panel dashboard works great but my database tables appear to be buddy press tables.

    Any suggestions to change them back?

    I’ve installed – re-installed, manually modified DB’s, a hundred times and never had anything remotely like this happen especially not caused by BP. BP doesn’t cock up in this manner, table prefix sounds like something your theme has done.

    As for fix? try renaming your tables back to the wp default ‘wp_’

    BuddyPress did not add any pressfix in front of your table names. Check your wp-config.php file to see what prefix you added to your tables. BP creates _bp_ tables in your database. It also adds BP options in wp_options table http://codex.buddypress.org/buddypress-site-administration/deleting-buddypress/
