Re: BP 1.2 and bbPress admin/plugins
An alternative way of accessing the admin panel – WARNING – this could be a big security problem is left in place, depending on your setup:
— copy your bb-config.php file from your WPMU root dir into the /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress directory.
— load up the bbPress admin panel in a browser and do what you need done (activate plugins, etc)
— DELETE the bb-config.php file in your /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums/bbpress directory because if you don’t then someone could access the forum directly.
