Thanks everyone for the lively discussion – happy that I’m not the only one suffering with this issue but feel sorry for all of us! I’ve eliminated one problem – I was getting a duplication of a group every time I set up a new one – I wasn’t running the latest php version for BuddyPress requirements on my dedicated server. This issue is now resolved.
However, I am still having problems with forum creation. The bb-config.php file is in the correct place in the root directory and all settings are also OK. This is a real mystery – I was hoping that the new BuddyPress version uploaded this week would solve the problem – no.
This issue is driving us bonkers – has anyone come up with a solution please?
It all started when we moved our site (www.eradar.eu) to its own server (accessed thru cPanel). We have lost all forums and when another group is created it creates multiple groups rather than just 1 (even though the unique ID numbers are the same) – everything was working fine with our previous shared server.
I’m beginning to think it is a server side issue……
1. Not a plugin issue – all have been tried and tested
2. Not a theme issue – was all working fine under the theme (Custom Community)
3. We are using all latest editions of WordPress, BuddyPress and BBPress…
4. We’ve followed discussion threads and deleted unique forum ids in MyPhp.
