#3979 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Wordpress dashboard wp-admin dissapears as soon as buddypress plugin is installed

Reported by: liquidcooled's profile liquidcooled Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: trivial Version: 1.5.3
Component: Core Keywords:


I have tried the install a few different times with both word press 3.2.1 and 3.3.1 and the latest version of buddypress. I am running a fresh install of word press on mamp, locally on my computer. I can install the buddypress plug in but as soon as i finish setting it up it takes me to the new buddy press site, but then I am unable to log back in to the wordpress dashboard. I have seen this complaint on multiple forums but have not come across a fix for it. I'd love to be able to work with buddypress it seems like fun.

Can't duplicate this. Until we have a confirmed bug with steps to duplicate, it's more important to keep the support requests in the support forums.

Closing this barring new information. Reopen if anything new comes to light.

Ok Buddypress works fine! I just bit the bullet and loaded it onto my dreamhost account and had no problems with it. There must be something screwy about the MAMP setup. If someone has a chance to figure that out and post it that would be useful I do know there are a lot of comments out there about this problem. Maybe all of them are form people trying to use MAMP to run buddy press.

I use MAMP Pro for local BuddyPress core development, and it works perfectly fine. Have also used WAMP an Windows and IIS7 too, both with their own quicks but still work great.

Going to close this as worksforme. Feel free to reopen if you find specific bugs in the software that we can fix to improve whatever issues people seem to be having.

I faced exactly the same problem. You can solve it, by increasing the PHP memory limit. This requires however MAMP Pro. Have a look at which PHP version MAMP Pro is using, and then change the PHP memory parameter in the PHP template for that PHP version (in MAMP Pro: go to File -> Edit template -> PHP -> the .ini file that refers to the version that MAMP Pro is currently using).
