Users can’t register

  • craigburdett


    I created a fresh install of WordPress, removed all themes except TwentyTwenty and all default plugins. Installed Buddypress from the WP repository. Activated. This is a fresh install set up to troubleshoot this Buddypress problem in another install.

    I can add users in the backend. If BP is disabled, users can register using the default registration.

    No WP errors are created or logged. A single proxy error is thrown. Noted below with real domain masked.

    Any suggestions?
