Re: bp_forums_setup error on activation

Jeff Sayre


The first time you upgraded BP from 1.0.3 to 1.1.2, did you manually upgrade or use the automatic upgrade feature of WordPress?

What I would recommend is trying this:

  • Make a backup copy of your DB if you have any data worth saving
  • Make a backup copy of your bb-config.php file-assuming that you had forums integrated before
  • Deactivate all non-BP plugins
  • Deactivate BP
  • Delete the old BP files located in the /buddypress/ directory
  • Temporarily remove all plugins from /plugins/–copy them to a temp folder outside your install
  • Manually upload a fresh copy of BP 1.1.2 and move the contents of /buddypress/bp-themes/ into their proper place
  • Remove your /wp-content/bp-themes/ directory–assuming that you have moved it back into place since your last post
  • Reactivate BP
  • If no error, choose and activate the new default BP theme

Does BuddyPress version 1.1.2 now work? If so, add back your other plugins and activate them.
