hi everyone, i alredy installed web based CMS (mambo 4.6.5) and i wish to use a good forum, such as phpbb, so after some web research, i saw problems with database (conflicts)  with user accounts, the idea is use the same username and password for mambo portal and the forum (phpbb).

Steps would be good!!! thanks!

Ok, I did some looking and didn;t find anything on this,
I would suggest that you use joomla and use rokbridge to bridge them together

I really don't know how that would be done, you could perhaps mod mambo to just get the user data from the phpbb database
