[Plugin: PHPBB Single Sign On] Is it worth trying?

  • Hi

    I am running WordPress 3.4.1 and phpBB 3.0.10 and wonder whether it is worth trying this plugin as there seems to be little support and after downlaoding and reading the installation instructions I must admit I was completely baffled.

    Has anyone got this working successfully and if so would they be able to advise?

    Would really love to get this to work with my site.

  • I’ve given up. It completely screwed my installation of PHPBB. Have had to delete it and reinstall.

    Disappointing because if it worked, it would be exactly what I’m looking for.

    Perhaps the WP community could pick this up and move it forwards for the latest WP?

    Just a thought.


    Yes it works.

    I’m using the latest version of both WP and this plugin and the only stuff that doesn’t work is the password update on new password request.

    Otherwise setup takes 3 minutes : install on WP, do all the stuff in the config page, and then in PHPBB, Server Settings, replace Apache with Wp.

    That’s it !

    Don’t forget that WP and PHPbb MUST BE ON THE SAME DATABASE.

    It didn’t work for me.

    The instructions for install are not particularly clear – also there was no assistance for a missing wpbb auth file ….

    Might try again.


    Ridiculous. Completely screwed my wp AND phpbb this time.

    FYI – wp and phpbb ARE in the same db.

    Can’t help you more… Just click on all the buttons in the plugin page setup, and don’t forget to change the auth mode in PhpBB settings.

    Also if your phpbb is modded then you will need to backup common-functions.php, apply the plugin patch, and after that add in the new file the missing functions from your backed up common-functions.php.

    failed totally. Must have reinstalled phpbb as it went into fatal errors galore.

    Could you give a short tutorial with more detail?
