Already, I have shared how to install WordPress and now in this post I’m sharing how to install BuddyPress.
For those who do not know, BuddyPress is a social networking CMS which bring people together. Some of the uses of BuddyPress are:
- A campus wide social network for a university, school or college
- A niche social network for your interest topic
- A focused social network for your new product.
I will come up more articles on BuddyPress which will help you to get started by building your own social networking site. In this post, I will cover only installation part.
