View Full Version : phpBB3 integration questions
September 11th, 2008, 10:39 PM
I'm troubleshooting for another client and they are having cookie issues with phpBB3. Their cookie settings are weird, they have the phpBB3 cookie name in the SMF cookie name field...is that supposed to be there? From what I've read, you enter it when you install, but what I didn't know is if entering it when you install could actually cause it to show in that field in the admin. The only other thing I see is that their cookie domain is set to .theirdomain.com in phpBB3, but is empty in Photopost. I'm hesitant to change anything because I don't want to lock everyone out...and for the record, if you do lock yourself out, can you change these settings in the database directly using phpmyadmin (if you know how)? I'd feel better knowing there was something I could do to change them back if I locked myself out.

The smf field states for smf phpbb3 or wowbb and yes thats correct.
Your regular cookie fields should be this
cookie path /
cookie prefix blank
cookie domain .theirdomain.com

They must be running a slightly older version because it only says in the admin panel for SMF users...but it looks like after adding the cookie domain, it is working better. Thanks for the help, as always, Chuck!
