This is exactly what I want to try and do. Mingle I think has outlived it’s purpose at http://ecigusers.com and I’m trying to migrate to buddypress but I have around 29 users and a steadily growing forum built in using mingle forum, Both Mingle and Buddypress can be activated at the same time I have found but the menu system thats semi-transparent on the header is a knighmare to navigate. If I re-activate buddypress could someone take a quick look at the site and make suggestions as to what I can do.
I’m testing this very thing I have 29 users on ecigusers.com both plugins have very different features that attract me to them. I also have a plugin called mingle forum which seems to work even with buddypress activated but the menu system is all over the shop. Is there an extention that anyone knows of that can add a custom menu to buddypress??
I think I’ve solved this problem the same as every here has been describing.
After about 3 re-installs and 10 cups of tea, I finally dawned on me like a chisel falling from the grasp of a tired granite mason.
You do indeed need to install at the domain level, this also includes as I have found, the sub-domain level.
1) Create sub-domain. http://www.SUB.DOMAIN.com
2) Fresh wordpress install to your new sub-domain
3) Then Buddypress install

my twitter is @samuelmunro if it worked for you or didn’t I’d like to know either way.
The above steps takes into account the understanding that you already know your way around cPanel, at least to the same level as me, which boasting aside is about one level higher than that of a monkey with lobotomy.
