Dashboard gives 500 Error upon Activation

  • eddiemachado


    When I go through the installation process, once I get to the last step, it gives me a HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error). wp-admin and the Dashboard becomes inaccessible, but the front end works fine.

    I tried renaming the buddypress folder and the admin area works fine again. If I try to activate the plugin (with the differently named folder) I get the following:

    Warning: require(/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core/bp-core-wpabstraction.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /wp-content/plugins/buddypress1/bp-loader.php on line 68

    I’ve even tried deleting the db tables and doing the activation fresh. Same result.

    This is with the current version (3.3.1) and no other plugins installed.

    Any suggestions?

  • It explains in the error message. The BuddyPress plugin folder needs to be “buddypress”, yours seems to be called “buddypress1”

    p.s. You will want to deactivate the plugin, rename the folder, then re-activate, otherwise you’ll get more WordPress errors about the plugin being missing :)



    Yea, the problem is the admin dashboard is unavailable if the plugin is active and named buddypress.

    Time to dig out your server error logs and hunt the error down :)
    It’s unlikely a problem with BP more likely with the server configuration, although there was another post similar to this one that, I think, mentioned getting to last BP step and things falling over.
