    other than just dropping the bb_ tables and removing the files? What are you looking for?

    Yes but doesn’t bbpress and buddypress share tables? Do I have to touch those tables, too?

    There is no ‘uninstall routine’. This isn’t windows. :)

    I wouldn’t touch the tables unless you know what you are doing. They aren’t going to hurt anything. It all depends on how you’ve installed and configured wpmu and bbpress. Delete the software for bbpress and call it a day.

    If you just delete the bb_ tables, and remove the files who belong to bbPress, then you are just fine. There are no specific tables (as far i can see) who are used by buddypress in combination with bbPress. If you ever plan to install bbPress again, just install it in a seperate database, that also just works fine in combination with WordPress <> bbPress ;)

    So:

    1: Delete bb_ tables

    2: Delete the bbPress files.

    And youre actually done with the uninstall ;)

    Thank you Felix2009.

    I wasn’t sure about the way you uninstall bbpress. It’s actually the first time that I am testing Automattic software. Using drupal you can remove module tables by a click of an uninstall button within the administration which is comfortable because then you would not have to mess with phpmyadmin in order to maintain a clean database.

    Next time .. Install bbPress in his own database, that also works just fine in combination with wordpress (MU) …

    And, a deinstallation is then just a click of the mouse ;-)

    One minor point.

    If you every reinstall & have implemented the Groups Forums you need to clean up the bp-groups-meta table otherwise you cannot turn the forums on for groups that have previously had forums. It took me about a day to figure that little “feature” out. :-)
