  • After much prodding, testing, checking and more, we located the problem. If Zend Optimizer is enabled, BuddyPress will not install. As soon as we disabled it, we had a perfect install of BuddyPress. Woohoo!

    I should also note that we had memory set at 150mb prior to install and actually boosted it to 256mb just to see if that was an issue. But, it made no difference until we disabled ZO.

    I appreciate everyone’s insight and help. Hopefully, this information will help others struggling with this installation issue. Thanks @stwc and @lph2005 for your time and energy.

    Ok. Here’s the update. Server checks out with proper versions of PHP and MySQL. Latest version of both WP and BP. Mod_Rewrite is functioning. Proper directories are writeable. WP is fully functional. Raw install… no other plugins active. Default theme. Looked through error log (nothing showed up). I’m stumped. Still getting the same error.

    Server tech guy says “I looked through the logs also, and did not see any errors in the error log either. I also saw that the request for ‘/wp-admin/plugins.php?activate=true&plugin_status=all&paged=1&s=’ returned 200, which means OK, so that is a bit weird.”

    Any insight is supremely appreciated.

    Thanks again, @stwc. I’m still working on this issue and will report back with my findings. It has to be something on the sever…

    Thanks, stwc. I’m actually on a dedicated server that I can fully control. Is there a key resource(s) I should look at that can be increased to better accommodate?

    I’m having similar troubles. I’ve gone through the pre-install checklist, and my server is up to par and my WP install works perfectly. In an effort to keep it clean, I’m using the latest version of WP 3.1.3 with no other plugins/themes/mods/anything. I can install the plugin, but when I activate I get this:

    “Safari can’t open the page “” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again.”

    At this point, the site itself and admin area are totally inaccessible. If I manually delete (or change the name) of the buddypress plugin in the plugins folder, all is returned to normal.

    I’ve searched high and low and am not sure where to look. Any help is truly appreciated. THANK YOU!
