integration with existing sites sessions

Post by coolfiger »

Good day,

I've spent the last few hours looking for a solution the the forum but there is no clear cut answer so here is the question.

I have a fully functional php site with its own db etc.

I would like to install phpbb forum and link it to my website.

I allready have users who registered about 500 of them and a db.

I want to either use the sessions on my website or my user database.

I cant use the ones from phpbb because my site already has it own.

How can i add my sites sessions to phpbb if possible. and whats the best way to achieve this.

What i want to achieve is when a user logs in to my site he must be able to click the forum link and be able to post in the forum as well.


Thanks for your help

Take a look at this page: http://wiki.phpbb.com/Add_custom_page

It shows how to integrate a page into phpBB sessions.

You could do the phpbb integration, then write a convertor script to bring your registered users over to the phpbb system. Its not all that complicated. Shoot me an email if you need help.

You can also use an auth plugin to authenticate against the existing db: http://wiki.phpbb.com/Authentication_plugins

is there an example of how the coding should look for using autologin_method against an exisiting db. I read over the page and i'm still not understanding. If I can see a example then i would understand.

thanks
