WPMU 2.8.3 + BP 1.0.3 on lighttpd – Custom form fields not saved!

  • Installed WPMU 2.8.3 on my local MAMP Apache 2.0.

    Installed Buddypress 1.0.3 and configured everything successfully.

    Moved the whole Installation on a lighttpd Server.

    Configured the rewrite rules as explained here http://blog.nix.is/lighttpd-rewrite-rules-for-wordpress

    The Blog and the Buddypress Urls work well… but:

    1. User-changes on their profile fields (even the standard name-field) were not saved!

    2. friend requests can’t be accepted (if you click on the accept-link you’re asked if you really want to do this. you can just go back then)

    On the my local Apache everything works!

    So it must be a lighty / lighttpd issue…

    Maybe a misconfiguration of lighty?

    Would i phpinfo() help?

    Please help.. no ideas how this could be resolved.

  • Ok i now have WPMU 2.8.4a + Buddypress 1.1 Beta on lighttpd running.

    Profile fields can be saved but accepting group membership or friend requests always leads to a site: “Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again”

    So it is the same problem as with 2.8.3 + bp1.0.3 on lighttpd server.

    Must be an url-rewriting issue!?

    The generated acceptance url looks like this “http://domain.com/members/admin/friends/requests/accept/1?_wpnonce=94e23dc003″

    Please let’s find some lighttpd/lighty rewrite rules that work with wpmu+buddypress perfectly…

    With these rules everything works fine instead of the problem i mentioned above:

    server.error-handler-404 = “/index.php”

    url.rewrite-once = (

    “^/(.*/)?files/$” => “/index.php”,

    “^/(.*/)?files/(.*)” => “/wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2″,

    “^(/wp-admin/.*)” => “$1″,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*)” => “/$2″,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$” => “/$2″,

    )

    Which rules do you use with Bp (if you have lighttpd) ?

    Same with 1.1 RC on lighttpd.. anyone the same problem?

    This is haow it worked:

    server.error-handler-404 = “/index.php”

    url.rewrite-once = (

    “^/(.*/)?files/$” => “/index.php”,

    “^/(.*/)?files/(.*)” => “/wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2″,

    “^(/wp-admin/.*)” => “$1″,

    “^/(wp-.*)$” => “$1″,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*)” => “/$2″,

    “^/([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*.php)$” => “/$2″,

    “(?.*)$” => “index.php$1″,

    “.” => “index.php”

    )
