Register PHPBB With PHP
If you have a website that has a normal website, and then a PHPbb forum you will need this blog to get users from the normal website, and register for PHPbb without creating multiple accounts, and all in one script. First, you must have a normal html form that goes to a PHP file for registering your users (Register Page). This snippet will be easy to install, insert it right under your MySQL insert query for new users. This works with phpbb 3+.

$password = $_POST['password']; // do not encrypt the variable for password yet. $email = $_POST['email']; //your form post of email $name = $_POST['username']; //form post of the username define('IN_PHPBB', true); $phpbb_root_path = (defined('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH')) ? PHPBB_ROOT_PATH : './forums/'; //change /forums/ to your directory folder for phpbb. From current directory, leave ./ in beginning $phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1); include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx); include($phpbb_root_path . 'includes/functions_user.' . $phpEx); $data = array(); $data['username'] = $name; //the username gets in the array $data['user_password'] = phpbb_hash($password); //password goes encrpted by PHPbb $data['user_email'] = $email; //user email gets in the array $data['group_id'] = '2'; //make your group id of a normal user. default is 2 $data['user_type'] = USER_NORMAL; user_add($data); //adding user to phpbb database
