1) Is your web root actually /www/www?
2) And is Buddypress installed here? /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/
You are running the single-user version of WordPress–most likely WP 2.8. BuddyPress will not work with single-user WP.
You must run WordPress Multiuser (aka WPMU or WordPress Mu) which can be downloaded from this link: https://mu.wordpress.org/download/
Thanks for the reply, but I did install the MU version!
Any other thoughts?
No, my web is not just www, I erased the first two directories which are on my server for displaying purposes…
Hum. Interesting. That error message is often associated with someone trying to run BuddyPress with the single-version WP. It would have made this issue a lot easier to resolve had that been the case!
Okay, here are some additional questions (besides the ones asked by DJPaul):
- How (and from where) did you download WPMU?
- How did you install it?
- Was WPMU functioning properly before trying to install BuddyPress?
- Have you checked your server’s error logs for other errors? If there are errors, what are they?
- Do you have any other WPMU plugins installed and activated?
I have the same type of problem. I downloaded the latest versions of both WPMU and BP and installed WPMU with no problem. I uploaded all of the BP files to the ‘plugins’ directory. When I try to activate it, I get this message:
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘/home/mmallory/public_html/greenworldzone.com/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-core.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/mmallory/public_html/greenworldzone.com/wp-content/plugins/bp-loader.php on line 19
I just reinstalled BP using the plugin installer and it’s working fine.
If you have any other BuddyPress-dependent plugins installed and activated, you must deactivate those before upgrading and reactivating BuddyPress. Once BP is upgraded and reactivated, you can then go back and reactivate the other BP-dependent plugins.
Also, move the default themes outside of /BuddyPress/ before upgrading. Keeping the themes directory within BP should not cause issues in and of itself, but it is a good idea to move it out before reactivating BP.
Thanks for all the fast replys, I will try to install BP via the plugin installer and get back to you all…
Jeff, here are my answers anyway:
1. How (and from where) did you download WPMU? mu.wordpress.org/
2. How did you install it? via FTP
3. Was WPMU functioning properly before trying to install BuddyPress? yes, I installed first, tested and then installed plugins to the plugins directory.
4. Have you checked your server’s error logs for other errors? If there are errors, what are they? No I haven’t, let me check
5. Do you have any other WPMU plugins installed and activated? no I don’t
Everyone, thanx for the replies, I installed via plugins and it worked..
Thanks again for the help and comments!
