#1433 closed defect (bug) (no action required)

Creating groups results in 404 error

Reported by: shevdog's profile shevdog Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: major
Severity: normal Version: 1.2.6
Component: Core Keywords: groups create 404
Cc: rbaccaro


The BuddyPress setup I have is:

  1. IIS7/Win2k8
  2. WPMU 2.8.6
  3. BuddyPress 1.1.3

(Host is GoDaddy with Windows Unlimited plan).

I host several Wordpress blogs and haven't had any rewrite issues. WPMU by itself works fine, no know issues. As a super admin, when I go to my profile, then "Groups > Create New Group", I get a 404 error. Same issue was happening with BP 1.1.3. I am wondering if this is a rewrite error or something else? Any related issues or know fixes?

Since this BuddyPress install is in development, I can do whatever I need to do on it.

Am using IIS7 as my dev environment on Windows 7 and have no issues with BuddyPress 1.2.3.

  • Version set to 1.2.6

I am using:

WP 3.0.3 (network activated)
BP 1.2.6
Win 2008

I have installed in 2 different Win servers and the problem still the same. See

See the last warning-error on profile > edit:

Notice: Undefined variable: group_id_sql in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress-dev\wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-xprofile\bp-xprofile-classes.php on line 100

If type the link directly the page loads fine, but 404 if I click on the following links:

Profile > Edit
Group > Create
Activity > View

When we change the wp-config to debug=true the pages load fine either way.

The bottom line is: the pages are not loading based on the links generated on the UI. For example:


The same installation but using Linux and Apache works just fine. So I guess it is something related to IIS rewrite rules.

  • Resolution set to invalid

I tested group creation the other night. Seemed to work fine, so closing ticket.
