Can anyone please point me into the correct direction

Post by Doorway »

Can anyone please point me into the correct direction that will allow me to have 2 or multiple forums with one login (1 database) - I've been looking for days... and I know it's right there under my nose, I've felt a bite or two already,, but I just can't seam to find it. :oops:

I'm using 3.0.5 w/subsilver2 frame
phpBB3 Rocks!

I always have to ask the question before I figure out the answer.
Thanks for all the support since 2.0.6!

the only thing i can find that looks like what you want is an article written for phpbb 2. maybe somebody here, or, more likely, in one of the MOD forums can help you out with a phpbb 3 version.

I had a setup like this going.

I would use the same database user/pass for both boards, then I edited my config.php and altered $table_prefix based on the URL and a database. I had the table prefix for the domain determined in here, so site1.domain.tld would set $table_prefix = 'site1_';, etc.

Hope this helps
