Summary: Ability to Authenticate against a MySQL BBPress user database.
Prerequisites: MySQL, BBPress
Status: First Release
Authenticates users against a BBPress user database. May also work with WordPress (but I haven't tested it).
Requires MySQL access from PHP. Doesn't actually require BBPress or Wordpress to be installed, just for their databases to be accessible.
Thanks to Ben Wilson and Michael Novak the authors of, respectively, dbauth-0.2.php and AuthUserOpenId which I used as examples of how to write an authentication module.
authbbpress.php into your
- Modify your
local/config.php to include something like:
$BbPressAuthDb = array(
'host' => 'localhost', # fine if your database is on the same server
'db' => 'dbname',
'user' => 'dbuser',
'password' => 'dbpass',
'table' => 'bb_users', # might need to change if you have multiple forums
'userfield' => 'user_login', # probably don't need to change
'pwfield' => 'user_pass' # probably don't need to change
include_once("cookbook/authbbpress.php"); // Included before the line below
include_once("$FarmD/scripts/authuser.php"); // You may have this one already
