Linking new website with phpBB user database

Post by LiquidForce134 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 4:44 am

I am currently working on a more functional website for my organization and already have a complete forum build and integrated into the old site. I am now looking to link my current forum's user database to my new site's login so we don't have to have 2 separate accounts.

If anyone has an guides that helped them out that are not outdated that would be fantastic or just anyone that knows how to do this would be even better! I can answer any questions you have in case I did not explain my situation correctly.

Thanks!
Best Regards,
LiquidForce

Why not use one registration/login? With phpbb you have everything you need (registration, session, auth and so on).

Well.. it depends on how you wanna do it. Is your forum in sub directory (./forum or something else) or in the root? Will you use template system?
