Getting Fatal Errors while Installing buddypress on WordPress single user

  • balukorrapati



    We are using wordpress single user for our website. We need to enhance our site by integrating buddypress.

    I have installed buddypress, bp template pack and other buddypress related plugins on my local machine using wamp server. It is working fine.

    But when I am doing this on Production server it is giving fatal error:

    Warning: require_once(wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-cores.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in wp-contentpluginsbuddypressbp-loader.php on line 19

    I have modified bp-core/bp-core-adminbar.php page only.

    I have checked the files in my folder. I am seeing all files.

    Please suggest me the solution for this.

    I need this badly. Please help me..

    First of all, we may need more information. If what I suggest below does not resolve your issue, then please answer these questions:

    The error message that you have posted is strange. BuddyPress does not have a file called bp-cores.php. You mentioned that you made some file modifications. Did you open up the file bp-loader.php? I would look in that file on line 19 to see if you accidentally added an “s” to bp-core. Line 19 should read:

    require_once( WP_PLUGIN_DIR . '/buddypress/bp-core.php' );

    If you see that there is an “s” but you are sure that you did not change it yourself, I would suggest deactivating then deleting BuddyPress. Then redownload BuddyPress and reinstall. Make sure your are downloading BuddyPress from this site

    Finally, when trying to debug BuddyPress, always use the default theme and deactivate all other plugins. You need to isolate what is happening within BuddyPress.
