Change of forums and now I can't login to photopost
I was using phpnuke and the modified version of phpbb with photopost and I have just changed my software to vbportal and vbulletin. The portal and forum are up and working, but I can no longer login to photopost.
I have changed the configeration settings in config-inc and these should be correct as far as I know. I have changed the user database settings to the vbulletin one and have inserted the vblicense code into the space provided. The pp database however is still the nuke one as I had to put it in the same database at the time of original installation to get it to integrate. I have therefore left the pp database settings the same.
Can anyone tell me what I might be missing here?

Okay yep was gonna say you need to change your integration.
There would be two more steps to do as well. Using phpmyadmin you would need to edit the settings table entries 171-173 and set to the proper cookies for vbulletin most notably if you can not login to admin is the cookie prefix. It is by default bb (you can verify by looking at vb config file) and change this setting to bb from phpbb2mysql
Next view the usergroups table and delete all entries except admin which you need to change the groupid from 2 to 6
You should then be able to login and you can refresh your usergroups
