Anybody get Forums to work on Media Temple DV?
hola buddypressers – did any of you who are on MT DV get forums to work properly? and if so, what did you do? i’ve tried hooking up bbPress with BP/WPMU and i always wind up with “There was an error posting that topic.”
so before you ask, i’m running WPMU 2.7.1, BP 1.0.1 on a subdomain with subdirectories on a dedicated virtual server along with bbPress 1.0 RC-3. on my first couple of tries when i followed these directions http://trac.buddypress.org/browser/trunk/bp-forums/installation-readme.txt, i never got the option to select Admin for a dropdown menu. one time, i just created a new user and changed the role to admin that way. another time, i did get one option from the pulldown menu for the user that i had created in step #8 (from the previous installation attempt) and assigned admin/keymaster to it. both of those didn’t work.
so then i got a suggestion to read this thread http://buddypress.org/forums/topic.php?id=471, and tried alphas 4, 5 and 6 — all three of them presented me with a blank screen when i typed in the installation url (but bbp 1.0-rc3 worked every time whenever i visited the install link… i was paranoid enough to switch back and forth every time — alpha 4, blank >> rc3, works; alpha 5, blank >> rc3, works; alpha 6, blank >> rc3, works). afterward, i decided to hop on the bbpress forum to search for installation problems for those alpha version i had tried and stumbled on this discouraging thread http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/how-many-more-alphas-before-beta#post-24237, which made me lose all hope, lol.
so now, i’m down to something called curl lib, but i don’t know if that could be the problem either, but if there’s someone on there on MT’s DV who ran into the same problems as i did and managed to sort through them, please reply! if not, it’s not the end of the world. everything else is just dandy
