Could you post the line define( 'BB_AUTH_KEY', 'f7sXx[2wbB@LBwlxS{A56y>+50OCEPv5iCgMXz iq\Ms}?(;_a#ypoR5'3w<G5>FL~1X' ); again. This time, highlight it, and click the "Code block button. The code block button is 5th from the left, where you see the bold, italic..., etc, buttons.

This looks like it might be a problem with your auth key, not BP. Also, can you post what versions of BuddyPress and WordPress you're using?

  • Cc hydroweb@… added
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The auth keys did not copy exactly from wp_config to bb_config. I had to copy by hand, then the forum loaded without error message.

#3 @hydroweb

Wordpress installed using version on Hostgator - 2.8.6. Then upgraded automatically to 2.9.1 at prompt. Then uploaded BP 1.2 beta. Activated the plugin. Activated BP default 1.2 beta. Then auto installed bbpress. That's when the error message showed up. BTW thanks for your prompt attention to this problem.

#4 @cnorris23

No problem. I figured it was an issue with one of the characters in the auth key, but I couldn't be sure until I made sure none of the characters had been converted. Looks like that was the problem if a new copy/paste job got you going again.
