PhpBB3UsersContrib Contrib Package

tested with phpBB3 v3.0.4

This Contrib enables you to replace the Foswiki User and Groups system with a read only access to the User and Groups in a phpBB3 Database. Registration of new users and their association with Groups is then only handled by phpBB3, making it possible to remove the distributed Main web.

You are advised to use the same same host for Foswiki and the phpBB3 Database, otherwise user query performance (happens every request) will severely degrade the response time.

NOTE: for performance reasons, the phpBB3 Registered Users group is not brought into the system. The other groups may cause performance degradation if they have too many members

Settings

Settings are in lib/LocalSite.cfg. the Foswiki configure script does not currently display the non-core options, but should also not remove them. See the Installation Instructions below for details.

  • One line description:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = replace the Foswiki User and Groups System with phpBB3's

  • Name of the perl package
    • Set STUB = authenticate using the phpBB3 users - disable registration.
