Can’t Create User Accounts

  • My buddypress install is not letting me create new accounts. Full registration is enabled. I am able to fill out the form for a profile and it even sends out an email. But when I click on that email’s activation, it links to a “Server not Found message”

    Same thing happens with my home base. Since there is no email activation, I get the message when I click on my user name on the top right hand corner..

    Any ideas?

    By the way, I love what you guys are doing. This is going to change the world!!! :D

    Could you create accounts in MU before you added Buddypress?

    Good question…it was a new install so I never tried.

    I am at work right now and wont get a chance until 6 pm PST.

    Lets say I couldn’t create accounts with MU, what would you recommend then?


    Does the link in the activation email have the right domain in it?

    “Lets say I couldn’t create accounts with MU, what would you recommend then?”

    Then I’d recommend you go back over the readme file included with MU. :) If you set up a subdomain account, it’s likely you forgot to do the wildcards.

    Ah…it is a subdomain account. I do not know what wildcards are. I will look into it now

    okay so…how do I do the wildcards? Is it hard? Am I better off disabling subdomain accounts? If so, how do I do that?



    Wildcard subdomains are part of your DNS & apache setup.

    To turn off subdomains in WP, edit your wp-config.php and change VHOST to ‘no’.

    Alright so

    …I realized I was putting in the wrong password for the username for my database. sorry!

    However, I have a whole new problem that I will start a new thread for


    Okay, its working now that they are no longer subdomains.

    good enough! thanks!



    ihave got it working so far but the strange thing is that it creates a blog instead of a profile and when i click on create a home base it just says…

    You’re logged in already. No need to register again!

    so basically when you register at you go through the sign up well and uit does it nicely but its creating a blog not a user… i am guessing this is due to the fact that i am useing sub directories no subdomains as my server doesnt alow me acces to wildcards.

    plase can som one help its for a major uni project..
