Will deactivating BP remove all user data?

  • ericodom


    Hi all,

    I know this may sound like a stupid question and perhaps it is. That said, I can’t for the life of me find an answer and God knows I’ve searched.

    So here is my dilemma. I’ve installed BP and many plugins, made heavy customizations and modifications and now have a good 30 or so members helping beta test everything before importing my Ning membership of 95,000+ members. The mistake I made, apparently, is that I didn’t activate the network for multisites before diving into the guts of BP. Now I have to go back and deactivate all plugins before activating the network.

    That said, my members have already been very active. They’ve been updating their profiles, creating activity and content , etc. What would happen to their profiles and content if BP were temporarily deactivated for the purpose of activating MS and then reactivating BP? Would all of the user content be lost or would it load back up upon reactivation?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Actually you have a single install with BuddyPress with N members and activities.

    Nothing will be deleted if you activate the site as network.

    That said it’s strongly recommended to dump your DB before doing this.

    For a better overview of the DB, see here
    The BP tables are the same on MS as on a single install, and WP adds only new tables for each blog and only if you create one at least.

    WP’s user table stays intact in any case, like bp activities and others related to members (profile, message and so on).

    This can help you too:
