PHPBB working with Active Directory over LDAP

When I looked into doing this, I found all sorts of conflicting, inaccurate, or incomplete information. It took a long time to get it working and I thought it might be helpful if I wrote up what I did for people that might need to do this in the future. Part of why this is so hard is that the error ...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

Okay -- after changing the corporate DB to "UFT8_BIN" and clearing/reinstalling I still did not have forum role values. My local install seemed to be working fine. I exported the db as a .sql file. Importing it to the corporate mysql installation created the above error. Which google tells...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

I have installed it on a local xampp server. When I look at the forum roles and such, I see they are populated. So -- I've then used the local phpmyadmin and I exported the DB to a .sql file. I then go to the corporate phpmyadmin (where I don't have access to create a new DB) and I drop all tables i...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

I am assuming AD is "Active Directory", which would use LDAP authentication. Correct. I might try a local install, but I'm not sure I have access to directly copy the database file to our corporate mysql server.\ ps. When I look at the DB via phpmyadmin, I can't help but notice almost eve...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

So there is no list of what the default role values should be?


Is there another forum software that authenticates to AD? (the only reason I'm fighting with phpbb rather than just moving to something else)

Re: Cannot see board forums.

I have cleared the db. Installed from scratch with zero errors. All the roles (Admin, User, Moderator, and Forum roles) still appear to have all the values set to 'no' with the exception of Admin->Standard Admin, Admin->Forum Admin, and Admin->User and Groups Admin. So I'm back to asking again: Is t...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

According to this topic: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2333771 your install never finished. We can assume your install crashed before the roles were setup. Good point! Well, the new install seems to be mad (Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'Twig_Error_Loader' with message...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

I'm not sure what you've done to the roles. You almost never need to go in there. ... and I never had. If you're seeing all the roles as no, I'd delete the lot and start again. Somewhere along the line your permissions have messed up. I've already tried clearing the directory, clearing the database...

Re: Default Forum Role Permissions

In this thread (https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=1917085) and many others, it seems clear that: "All the Roles are are preset groups of permissions, to make it easier to set permissions for groups and users" ... but all my roles are empty. Is there a standard way to...

Re: Default Forum Role Permissions

Here is a video of me showing a dozen or so roles: https://youtu.be/9lIvnTAqjlo Note that there aren't any "yes" values.... The knowledge base article: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.0/kb/article/phpbb3-permissions/ Indicates that "Most standard Roles use combinations of &quo...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

You don't need to be editing the roles. They're correct as they are. Almost every single role is all 'no'. It's easier to do a quick video than dozens and dozens of screenshots.... I apologize. If you want me to make the screenshots, I will, as I appreciate your help greatly. https://youtu.be/9lIvn...

Default Forum Role Permissions

All of my Forum permission rolls ("Read only", "Standard", etc) are all set to 'no' for every single permission. You'll notice the screenshot below is for the "standard access + polls". StandardAccessPlusPolls.png Is there a way to get a standard set of permissions such...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

So I went to the forum role permissions and added some to the 'read only' group. After doing this (outlined in attached screenshot), an anonymous user was able to see the parent-less forum I had created ("Windows" in the example video). So, I'm suspecting my problem is that forum 'roles' a...

Re: Cannot see board forums.

Sorry about the videos... I thought that would be an easier way for you people to see what I'm doing. I can do screenshots if it's easier. Here is a screenshot of the potential issue I mentioned in my last post. Is this how it's supposed to look? Is this a possible source of my issues? StandardAcces...
