Re: Installing buddypress as a Subdomain

Thanks everybody for the backup

Actually, I raised this issue and I found the answers, Thanks to both wpmudev and buddypress docs

But after activating buddypress on a subdomain, I found it better if I activated it on the root blog, so I will not confuse my members.

I tried to reverse the process, But I completely failed

I tried the following maneuvers but non of them succeeded:

1- I deactivated bp plugin and deleted it –> once installed and activated again it will be activated back on blog 3

2- I droped the bp tables in the database, installed again but the same problem

3- I added this code to wp-config:

define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 1 );

define( ‘BP_AVATAR_UPLOAD_PATH’, ‘/var/www/wp-content/blogs.dir/3/files’ );

define( ‘BP_AVATAR_URL’, ‘hxxp://’ );

and tried to activate bp plugin again

it activated nicely and asked me to choose a theme for buddypress but once choosing a theme I see only a blank white page and I can’t access my dashboard even

I get to it by accessing another blog and deactivating bp plugin to get through my dashboard

so I tried another way

I did all of the mentioned in addition to editing my .htaccess and adding the following codes

RedirectMatch 301 ^/members/(.*)$$1

RedirectMatch 301 ^/groups/(.*)$$1

RedirectMatch 301 ^/blogs/(.*)$$1

RedirectMatch 301 ^/forums/(.*)$$1

but non of them helped

I still have one option to delete blog 3, but I’m afraid I will be stuck and No way to do it back

I Know I’m asking too much but Please Help Me
