bbpress 1.02 plugin errors in wordpress mu

The plugin does not have a valid header.

bbPress is NOT a plugin. You do NOT add it from your admin panel.
You install it as a separate program.

bbPress is not a plugin for WordPress. It should not be in your wp-content/plugins folder. It will be installed right along side WordPress, not inside WordPress as a plugin.

[did you try the fresh install of wp 2.9 instead of upgrade version?]

this could be the issue with php settings and file size restrictions.

Incompatible archive PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

no solution found on the net

Quick Instructions

1. Download bbPress from the download page
2. Upload the uncompressed files to your server
3. Optionally upload language files to “my-languages” – You will have to create this directory
4. Visit the intended URL of the bbPress site
5. You will be greeted with the bbPress installer
6. Follow the instructions in the installer
7. Visit “Settings” in the admin area to customise your installation
8. If you have any questions, ask in the forums

There doesn't seem to be a bb-config.php file. This usually means that you want to install bbPress.

Step 1 - Database configuration

In this step you need to enter your database connection details. The installer will attempt to create a file called bb-config.php in the root directory of your bbPress installation.

on adding the db name db user and db user pwd you get

Your settings have been saved to the file bb-config.php
You can now continue to the next step.

Step 2 - WordPress integration (optional)

bbPress can integrate login and user data seamlessly with WordPress. You can safely skip this step if you do not wish to integrate with an existing WordPress install.

Your WordPress integration cookie and database settings have been successfully validated. They will be saved after the next step.

Once you have finished installing, you should visit the WordPress integration section of the bbPress admin area for further options and integration instructions, including user mapping and the correct cookie settings to add to your WordPress configuration file.

Step 3 - Site settings
Your site settings have been saved and we are now ready to complete the installation. So what are you waiting for?

>>> WordPress "auth" cookie salt not set.
>>>>>> Could not fetch "auth" cookie salt from the WordPress options table.
>>>>>> You will need to manually define the "auth" cookie salt in your database.
>>> WordPress "logged in" cookie salt not set.
>>>>>> Could not fetch "logged in" cookie salt from the WordPress options table.
>>>>>> You will need to manually define the "logged in" cookie salt in your database.
