External pages logging users out

Post by zoobie »

Hi -
After yet another migration of my hosts doing, this time my external pages do not keep the user logged in. First, I had to go into the CP and select php 5.6 from the php version manager. Then I noticed my external pages weren't keeping the user logged in. I'm using the code below but wondering if the php manager somehow changed it. My host is clueless.

Code: Select all

<?php
define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = (defined('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH')) ? PHPBB_ROOT_PATH : './buskers/';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();
//$phpbb_root_path = './buskers/';
if ($user->data['user_id'] == ANONYMOUS){
?>

Non-logged in HTML

<?php
}
else
{
?>

Logged in HTML

<?php
}
?>

Thanks for any insight

Are you also using append_sid() for URIs pointing to those external pages? Your code of the external page looks fine.

That's all the code I'm using.
Where would the append_sid() go?
Thanks

To every URI. Look at i.e. /viewtopic.php and see wherever it is used - there's not one URI printed without using it.

I found about register_globals "This feature has been DEPRECATED as of PHP 5.3.0 and REMOVED as of PHP 5.4.0."
How do I fix the code so it works?

Code: Select all

<?php
define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = (defined('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH')) ? PHPBB_ROOT_PATH : './buskers/';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();
//$phpbb_root_path = './buskers/';
if ($user->data['user_id'] == ANONYMOUS){
?>

I don't know why you posted the same code again. phpBB's only usage of register_globals is for deactivating it. Search all files for this word and comment out/delete the code using it.

Which version of phpBB are you using?
* And if it's too old, what's preventing you from updating/grading?
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

3.0.2
I'm not willing to give up the mods and start all over.
I figured another way around running php5.6 thus saving my board, mods, style, and countless hours.

you should at least update your 3.0.2 to 3.0.14

if your external page is the only one not working with php 5.6 then I believe there is a topic about how to do it using 5.6 somewhere here in the archived 3.0 section.


if you are not willing to upgrade to the current version of phpbb then your options for help are greatly limited and pretty much non existent here at phpbb.com

My cPanel has a php version manager where you can select php5.6 from the default 7.

I read at another forum:
I am aware of the switch from mods to extensions. The day that happened was a bad day for many. It meant that anybody running 3.0 series was going to have to in essence start over if they wanted to update to 3.1 and now 3.2.

phpBB mods are not in any way compatible with any phpBB version past 3.0.* phpBB support is not able to help with this, the only thing they are willing to do is help you upgrade the CORE files of your version 3.0 to CORE 3.2 Many forum owners have tried to convert their mods to extensions and so far there are no success stories posted.

In order for you to get phpBB 3.0 working in 2019 on any server is going to take a lot of tweaking. You really should not be calling out your host because their 2019 servers will not support your extremely outdated software which requires outdated server software to run. phpBB 3.0 is so outdated that even the mods archives has been removed from the public view/download at the phpBB website.

If you want to disable your mods and update to the current version then by all means ask at the phpBB forum, they will help. But only if you are willing to give up the mods.
Fair enough but not for me.

Someone mentioned he hadn't seen a phpbb board in a long time.

Have you checked the extension database to see whether someting similar to those mods exists?
Take into account that php versions < 7 will be phased out gradually!

Another thing to take into account is that your statement actually implies that phpBB support stops here!?
Seriously, I updated from 3.0 directly to 3.2 around end 2016 and I have been able to replace all (but 1 of) my mods by extensions, or have transformed them to simple extensions (for 1 I received some seriously good help here), or custom coded them for 3.2. I haven't looked back since.

I can't help but smile at such a statement. Since when is he/she blind?

Don't shoot the messenger.
Looking now at the archives under 3.0.x
I wonder if the "Remember me" checkbox would help.
There's something for Linked accounts but for 3.2.x

You haven't answered to one important question. It was asked above by AmigoJack about uris that are pointing to your page/s.
How do you jump from one to another?
I have used external pages since 2.0.x branch and up to master branch and no problems (will switch to front controller soon).
