PhpBB3 authenticate agains custom database
Posted on 2008-10-15
I've got a website that has it's own database for authenticating users right now. I need to add PhpBB3 onto this site. I've got it installed already and working.
Is there a way so that when a user logs into my existing site which authenticates against my current database, they can also be logged into PhpBB3? (They would just link to the forums after logging in and be able to post)
From what I've researched, I'd need to modify the PhpBB's /includes/auth/auth_db.php file.
Has someone already completed this, or know of an easier solution?
