Unable to install group OR Site Wide forums

    I am running on a sub-directory Multisite installation.

    I installed Buddypress on the network; enabled buddypress on /forums/, and was unable to complete the install wizard (due to “you do not have permission to access this page”).

    I overcame that by adding two lines to my wp-config.php file:
    `define(‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true);`
    `define(‘BP_ROOT_BLOG`, $my_blog_id);`
    (obviously, with `$my_blog_id` replaced with my actual blog’s ID)

    I was able to complete the initial setup and have linked WP pages with the Activity, Group, Member, Discussion, etc pages in Buddypress. However, I am unable to install either Group or Site Wide forums.

    Trying to install Group forums directs me to the “You do not have permissions” page (I am the only SuperUser on the network so that isn’t the issue) and trying to install the Site Wide forums pops up with a small modal window at the default Plugin Installation window (where you can search for a plugin and see the “most commonly used” ones.

    Anybody know what the issue is? I would HATE to have to scrap this.

    Make sure that BuddyPress Groups and Forums are set up and running BEFORE you add
    define(‘BP_ENABLE_MULTIBLOG’, true); or define(‘BP_ROOT_BLOG, $my_blog_id);`

    If I remove those two lines from the wp-config.php, then I would have been unable to successfully run through the setup. I will test removing it now and get back to you.

    Alright.

    Removed the two lines from wp-config.php – a couple of things happened:

    1) My website is now displaying as I would imagine a default install would.
    2) My “Forums” subdir network no longer has settings for Buddypress (anywhere – including “Dashboard” submenu and “Settings” submenu); instead…
    3) My “Forums” subdir now has the yellow bar at the top of the wp-admin, with “BuddyPress was successfully activated! Please run the installation wizard.”

    Clicking that link gives me the message “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.”.

    == I am running on a sub-directory Multisite installation ==

    Just to clarify – do you mean you installed WP in domain root and your network is subdirectory structure or that you installed WP in a physical subdirectory and went multisite?

    Where are you hosted? Unix or Windows server?

    Did you install your WP manually i.e., via FTP and wp-admin/install.php or did you use webhost script to install WP e.g. fantastico, softalicious,etc.? If you installed via webhost script, please delete installation and start from scratch.
