Buddypress plugin registration activation.

Just Getting Started

I'm a novice with a sincere desire to learn but may be over my head.

Currently my Wordpress with Buddypress plugin site is loaded on bluehost. What is my first step in getting the registration activated in BuddyPress? No where on the dashboard does it show options.

BTW the plugin concern dropdown does not have simply, "BuddyPress" . I haven't a clue as to what BuddyPress Activity Plus is.

Thanks in advance for help.
