Loss main site buddypress error – need help

  • When I tryed to activate Buddypress, I get error :Fatal error: Cannot redeclare bp_activity_install() (previously declared in /home/alldone/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php:19) in /home/alldone/public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-activity.php on line 52

    Looks like I did not follow update instructions correctly. This is mu site with about 8 accounts, only 2 accounts with blogs that I really need to keep. These two sites are still working correctly and I exported them, but the main site is blank page.

    My thought is to just delete the buddypress and re-install it. What do I loose if I do this or is there away to fix this problem.

    have you removed bp-themes folder from the wp-content

    no, but I just copied it off, site is still not coming back is the next step to run upgrade again or where do I step back into install instructions.

    well,follow these steps

    1.Get a backup of bp-themes(I hope you already did it) and delete it from wp-content,there should be no folder named bp-themes

    2.Now copy the bp-sn-parent and bp-default from the buddypress/bp-themes(the new buddypress plugin you have downloaded) to wp-content/themes

    3.Go to wp-dashboard->Site Admin->Themes and enable bp-default

    4.Go to appearance and activate bp-default ,hopefully ,you site should return back to normal.

    Thanks Brajesh, I got my site back using the default buddypress theme. The face buddytheme won’t activate, the default site says it doesn’t work with 1.1.2, but I found another site that says it does. If you have any ideas, great, but right now I’m going to look around to see if I can find anything else that might work.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    you are most welcome :)

    I am glad your site is working now.

    I am not sure about facebuddy theme though.
