@ r-a-y yes, it is installed in it’s own directory “wordpress” http://mdacintranet/wordpress, the problem is when I install bp the additional sub-directories that (I’m assuming) are suppose to be written under the wordpress directory are not appearing. Thus causing the page not found error, it’s not possible to display a page when the directory the page is suppose to be in is not even there. Maybe I’m suppose to manually create each of the first? I have literally re-installed from scratch about 7+ times. The wp site installs and runs flawlessly until I try to install bp. Once BuddyPress is installed the only thing that works properly is the dashboard and in order for me to then fix the site I have to do a complete re-install of wp. If I try to deactivate the bp plugin, it cripples the entire site. I have been trying this on multiple systems all running Linux (ubuntu 12.04 server) and all in virtual machines. Any help will be greatly appreciated as this seems like the perfect solution if only I can get it to actually work. Thanks.
