Users migration

Post by Eldest » Wed Nov 14, 2018 10:53 am

Hi everyone,

I have a web page with users and I installed the forum in a folder of this domain.
What I want is for users to be able to enter the forum with their normal login.

How can I do it?

Thanks in advance! :D

With great difficulty.

Without more information it is difficult to say but you will need to create a "bridge" between the two systems where your login data is transferred over to phpBB and back again. I would add that there is no "generic" bride for phpBB that will do what you want.

Thanks for answer david :D

I have found this code in github https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/blob/mas ... der/db.php
I'm beginner with coding and I'm not sure if there's my solution.

As david63 wrote, more information is needed in order to understand what you have and what you want to do.

A "web page with users" doesn't really say much. Apparently your users can login somewhere so their passwords must be stored somewhere (probably hashed and not in plain text) so a bridge would be needed for automatic login (if that is what you want - if not then the users can just register on your board, with the same password if that is what you/they want).
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

Tell me what info you need.
I want to when the web users are logged they can enter the forum, if not they can't.
Forum register disabled and forum register disabled too, because they must login in the web not in the forum.

I don't know if now is more clear xD. Tell me if you need something :).

Do you have a database with usernames and passwords? If so, LDAP might work.
