Unable to see buddypress core plugin in newly upgraded WPMU 2.9.2

    Hi,

    I recently tried to install buddypress latest (as of today) buddypress.1.2.2.1.zip

    But it said I needed to upgrade WPMU 2.9.2 at least

    So I did that, I tried deactivating all plugins no difference.

    But nothing i do is firing the bp-loader to even be detectable in the plugin list.. I even added bp-custom and specific blog id. I have never gotten a chance to click activate.

    I’m only accessing the blog specifically that I want to activate buddypress on. I do not want to activate it on the root blog, hence why I also added bp-custom.

    I am concerned that maybe my upgrade didn’t work properly or fully yet? I don’t see any errors in the error log except Negotiation: discovered file(s) matching request: /Users/XXX/Sites/YYY/trunk/wordpress-mu/index.html (None could be negotiated)., referer: http://ZZZ/wp-admin/plugins.php

    Also I tried adding die() commands through every file in the buddy press core plugin folder, but I didn’t see a white page… It’s almost like it just ignores buddypress altogether. I was able to see and activate the buddypress template pack plugin just fine…

    Please help!

    I appreciate any insights anyone might have… it really shouldn’t be this mind boggling :)

    You don’t need WPMU to use BuddyPress.

    If you are testing this on a new install, I’d advise you to start from scratch.

    Get WP, then get BP and everything should work.

    Hi RAY,

    I must use WPMU and must use it on an existing blog.

    I can see this being a bit complicated, attempting to run BuddyPress on WPMU, and yet not have it on the root blog. The one time I’ve done this is through the use of a multi-site plugin I got from http://ronandandrea.com. I’m thinking when BuddyPress is installed on a WPMU site it ends up being installed as a site wide plugin, across all blogs. The above mentioned plugin allowed me to set up a new blog to function as ‘root’, as if it were a different WPMU site, and I did successfully get this up and running without having buddypress interfere with my previously created blogs. This can be a bit complex though as not all plugins are necessarily ‘site-aware’.

    Also, as far as updating WPMU to 2.9.2, I’m thinking that would need to be done for your root blog, and then after you need to go to site admin, and hit upgrade to upgrade all your blogs to 2.9.2, at least that is what I do when I upgrade.

    Oh, hold on.

    If you are using BP on WPMU and want to run it on a blog which is not the root blog (root blog is blog_id = 1). See http://codex.buddypress.org/how-to-guides/changing-internal-configuration-settings/ but in your wp-config, add:

    define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 2 );

    For running BP on blog id 2, for example.

    Ahh, perhaps it hasn’t upgraded because I never saw it go to the auto db upgrade step.

    Ok I finally figured out that my username didn’t have admin rights.. and in some blogs, neither did the admin user :)

    Now when I get to step two of the buddy press template pack I get this:

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function bp_core_is_multisite() in /Users/omaruddin/Sites/waitt-amelia/trunk/wordpress-buddypress-mu/wp-content/plugins/bp-template-pack/bp-template-pack.php on line 188

    Ok now I’m just getting the infamous white page of death and nothing at all in the XAMPP error logs…
