Integration with phpBB login system
I was looking around and I found the following:
(Posted by v9gra):
"This won't fly.... You know that there is a 20 user limit on version 6. I'm assuming that your phpBB installation has more users than that...
The easy way to integrate it is by creating a single user in EPC that will be used by everybody. You create a page with basically nothing but a redirect that checks if the user is logged in to phpBB (I assume you already know how to handle this as you've based your site on this). Once the user's session is validated, you redirect to the Calendar's Event Manager by passing the username and password in the URL. If the user is not validated then you redirect to the phpBB login page.
This will work and is the easiest way to handle it. Remember that even if you do manage to synchronize the user list between EPC and phpBB, even if the user is logged in to phpBB, EPC doesn't use the phpBB session and would ask the user to log in again.
Let me know if you want more details to set this up."
Which seems a really good solution but I would like to know if changing the whole login/register/logout system (session/cookie) to use the one of phpBB instead would be something doable?
I do not need to integrate the calendar in the forum. I am using a website that is using the phpBB user system and I would like to know if I could do the same with Easy PHP Caendar along the way, only 3 or 4 users created in the phpBB database would have access to add events and "manage" the calendar.
I am not an expert in PHP but I am starting to get used to it.
Can anyone help me out with this?
Thanks a lot for your time and help.
