I've made my peace with having two DB's and two sets of roles, permissions, etc. But I'd like to have just one login.

Is there a simple way to have the Drupal login throw a session cookie for phpBB with the same parameters as the drupal one?

If what you want is a clean way to integrate phpBB with Drupal, I think phpBB Forum Integration is want you need.

This module will not only "embed" phpBB within a Drupal site (and synchronize account info, such as user names, roles, passwords, emails, signatures, and avatars, with only one login), but it also let phpBB topics be created from Drupal nodes.

The phpBB forum can be displayed in a full window, in a frame inside Drupal, or in a Drupal page.

  • Thanks for this answer, and my apologies for the delayed response. Does the plugin also sync roles? For role restricted content on the forum? Sep 21, 2013 at 7:13
