Upgrading existing Buddypress site to WP 3.0

  • Avatar of Peterverkooijen


    I’ve upgraded an existing test site from WP 2.9.2 with BP 1.1.3 to WP 3.0. Followed all the directions. Most things seem to work OK, even with 1.1.3, but I don’t get ’Create A Network’ in wp-admin under Tools. Other multisite settings are missing as well. I have define(’WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE’, true); in wp-config.php. What am I missing?

    An upgrade from 2.9.2 WPMU to WP 3.0 is slightly different due to already having multi sites configured, there is a Super Admin section but no ‘Create a Network’ as it already exists, at least that is how it appears to me comparing my 2.9.2 installs against some fresh installs of WP 3.0 multi site enabled

    Thanks hnla. So I’m not missing anything then?

    I thought it could be a problem because I’m also missing the ‘Uploading Files’ section under Settings > Media, where you can set upload paths. I saw in the code that only shows up when multisite is active. Upload path is relevant for avatar upload, which is the only thing (so far…) that I can’t get to work in BP 1.1.3 on WP 3.0.

    The clean test install of 1.2.5 + 3.0 did have the ‘Uploading Files’ section with or without WP_ALLOW_MULTISITE, so that may not have anything to do with it after all. Confused… :-|
