bbPress migration when BP 1.1 gets released?

  • Profile photo of r-a-y


    (This was a post from another thread… created a new topic as this was getting off-topic from the OP of that thread)

    How would existing BP users with bbPress installed migrate to the new system for v1.1?

    We’re using bbPress for main , general discussions as well as BP group forums.

    So when BP 1.1 gets released and I want to keep the existing bbPress install, but want to use the updated BP forum code… how would that work?

    I’m guessing I would have to rely on some form of legacy compatibility and keep on using XMLRPC? Or leave the existing bbPress install alone and use the new BP forum code (which is some form of embedded instance of bbPress within BP, if I understand correctly)?

    Don’t worry you can set up the existing bb forum with the BP 1.1.

    Maybe you’ll have some problems with the theme.

    The best way is for you to duplicate your database and site, and perform an upgrade using the current trunk, and see what issues you run into. This is also needed for valuable testing / bug reporting as necessary.

    XML-RPC BBPress has been removed, totally. Again, install a test installation of trunk – on the Forums Setup page of the admin menu, there’s an option to either set up a new installation or to use an existing database.

    I tried this for the first time last weekend, and setting up a new forum installation was as easy as pressing one button – it’s amazing.

    The upgrade button I haven’t tried yet, but it requires you to put in a path for your existing BBPress bb-config.php file. As long as you are using the latest version of BBPress, I can’t think of any issues – possibilities are the server not being able to read the files in a different folder, but if your server is working with the XML-RPC at the moment, then that’s not going to be an issue.

    So, “how would that work?” AWESOMELY.
