[DEV] phpBB and MediaWiki shared login.

Post by PCGUY112887 »

I was looking around at a way to have a shared login between my MediaWiki and phpBB.

I found this. I think this is usable, however I don't quite understand how I could work this into the phpBB login system.

I bet with some help from some of you more experienced guys we could turn this into an "easier to install" mod.

Is this actually in development? Because if anyone's working on it I'd be happy to beta test.

More like looking for some help on getting it together. I have come to the conclusion that if you could somehow make Wiki and phpBB share the same Users DB then it would work. The wiki users database is very similar to phpBB's, it just has some extra stuff, etc. I could go ahead and make the phpBB users table fully compatable with the Wiki but I can't figure out how to make the Wiki look in there insted of it's own users table.

I just got this Auth_phpBB thing working at my site. It's not exactly the same, but it works for what I need it for.

I am currently using this method:
http://www.phpbb.com/kb/article.php?article_id=143

However, that does not log my users into MediaWiki it just secures the MediaWiki area so that they do not need another login. However, the site has come to the point that MediaWiki is requiring a login for certain things. I am trying to figure out how to disable that requirement, but if there was some way to integrate the MW user database with the phpBB user database and have users logged into both with a single sign in, that would be great.

I tried for a long time to integrate phpbb with mediawiki.

As demonstrated on my website, my mediawiki use phpbb's authentication system (and requires user to be part of wiki usergroup for wiki alterations), user tracking and i also have replaced the default wiki talk pages to instead use phpbb.

I am planning on creating an easy to install mod for this.. I think i have seen here and there people interested in this type of integration.

I'll just cleanup my own (messy) code and post it on the forum for evaluation. I think it will be done within a week.
