My question will remove all doubt that I am a complete noob to BP and WP.
As I understand, I install and activate WP … then install and activate BP.
It appears to me that I now have to admin WP parts and BP parts separately
to accomplish what I want. Have I missed something or is this correct?
I have nuked three install attempts trying to set a theme other than the
default, out-of-box theme. I **know** that I’ve missed something here.
I posted to WP before I installed and activated BP. The WP content
was no longer visible and I could not find it to make it appear.
Again, I ***know*** that I missed something.
Someone please direct me to the correct instructions to get things
installed, activated, and running — aka, off the ground.
Thanks in advance,
I’ve read the details at codex.buddypress.org and tried the “tests” for correct WordPress install.
They all seem to work.
I also read: `”WordPress should be installed manually i.e. via FTP, cpanel, etc. and NOT via webhost scripts (fantastico, softalicious, etc.)which bring about numerous issues when BuddyPress is activated.”`
Apparently I’m off into “various issues” land. Are these issues listed anywhere? Since my WP seems to pass the listed tests? What else could be going on?
I’d like to make a local install of WP + BP so that I have a “sandbox.”
How would I clone or replicate my local install to my hosted server?
I know that I can SCP or FTP the files from the web site folders, but then how do I deal with the required database files and supporting parts?
Other than the issues described in the codex article, is BP v1.6.1 supposed to work with WP v3.4.1 or v3.4.2 without much grief?
I’ve contacted my hosting vendor to discover how to best proceed with the corrections you suggest that I need.
