Re: Buddypress 1.2 & BBpress Broken

Carl Chapman


I’m having the exact same issue. I have buddy Press full integrated into my site and all parts of it are functioning. I figured the next step would be to add forums. With that in mind, I uploaded the bbpress files into my /forums/ directory and followed the installation instructions from the site (I have tried it 3 times using integration and once without)

I used the Forums Setup from Buddy Press each time to create the bb-config.php file. Each time the installer found the file and thing seemed to go OK. When I was using integration at the end of the install it found and suggested that I use the wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-forums directory for the location of my forum… each time I said yes.

While using integration it would report a small error that the bb-config.php file was not writeable so I would have to create the key entries myself. Even though I made the bb-config.phhp file (in the root) writeable, this made not difference in the installation error message. (My guess is that the installer is looking at the ‘fake’ bb-config.php file in the forum location directory.

The installation without integration completed successfully with now error messages.

Every time I try to log in, or visit the forum, or visit the admin page all I get is a blank screen… view source shows no source at all. If I examine the directories on the server, the forum files are located there.

Anyone have an idea of what I’m doing wrong? Or what might be going wrong.
