Importing Drupal Users into PHPBB 3.x?

Post by aaronkeuper »

Programming, PHP, MySQL I cannot understand for the life of me, it just frustrates me.

I want to import users from a preexisting Drupal installation into a new installation of PHPBB 3 RC2. Yes, I know it's not final, I want to do it anyway.

Is there a utility or a bullet list of how to do this?


any help would be greatly appreciated!

Do you want to continue running Drupal along side the forum, or are you ditching it? If you want it along side, you should also check out authentication modules. Theoretically, you could get an authentication module to check an attempted phpBB login against your Drupal database and also have it add the user to the phpBB database if it doesn't exist yet (you'd be importing users as they try to log into the forum).

Unfortunately, this does involve quite a bit of programming, so by the sounds of it your only option is for you to wait until someone with the same need comes along that does have the programming skills to tackle that.

Unless something has changed that I'm not aware of, that wouldn't work.
