The first error you can fix by set ; after "$extraAuthCondition=''"

If you are not married to firmly to the MediaWiki software - there is another implementation of wiki that has this integration completed and working. I have done this myself on 2 sites. The first is a corporate internal documentation site. The second is on my book website. You can see how it works here:
http://www.ibdof.com/wikka/IBDoFWikka <- this is the wiki site
http://www.ibdof.com/ <- this is the phpBB site.

One thing that is NOT obvious - but fairly critical - the "hack" does not make it possible to create your user ID through the wiki software - you can only successfully create a user ID through the phpBB registration page...

Here is the page where it documents everything you need to modify to get this to work:
http://wikka.jsnx.com/WikkaWithphpBB
This is using Wikka Wiki:
http://wikka.jsnx.com/

Hope this helps someone.
The wonderful thing about not planning,
is that failure comes as a complete surprise,
and is not preceded by a period of worry or depression.

Thanks for the post kiltannen. This is exactly what I am looking for and it seems a bit easier to use than MediaWiki.

I am also looking to integrate my MediaWiki wiki and my phpBB forum to the same user database. Has anyone figured this out yet? Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. I know that this can be done. Thanks in advance.

I just found this today: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/PHPBB/Users_Integration

It should do what you want. I hope to try it soon.

this sounds like exactly what i'm looking for. any idea if it works with postgresql? i already have postgres on my servers and i wouldn't want to install another db *even if* mysql were anywhere near as good as postgres.

(one of the reasons i chose phpbb rather than one of the many others was that it works with postgres and doesn't require you to use over-hyped toys like mysql).

mediawiki suffers from this problem. it's a fantastic piece of wiki software, easily one of the best - but it only works with mysql. which kind of kills it for me.




actually, what i'd like to see is a wiki mod for phpbb which:

- allowed you to create new wikis just as you create new forums (i.e. each wiki entry would need a forum id and a category id along with whatever other metadata needs to be stored about it)

- allowed you to set read/write permissions for each wiki the same as for forums. that way you could separate wiki areas for different user groups, say, the Staff & User groups.

- bbcode support, including a [wiki] tag in forum posts.

- Revision Control, with changelog, history, diffs, reversion, etc.


the wikiness mod that someone mentioned in this thread does some of this (most of it) but development seems to have stalled back in May last year.

Exactly what I was looking for! I knew I should've searched here before searching google.
