phpbb Session problems

Recommended Posts

Ok, I am trying to hook the popular phpbb bullitin board system with a uploading system that I created.  I have merged the two databases together, so if someone signs up for phpbb (my forum) they also becsome a member of the uploading system.  Here are my files:

Ok, I have a simple script like this:


[code]if ($_GET['submit']){
$check=mysql_num_rows(mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `phpbb_users` WHERE username = '$username' LIMIT 1"));
$check2=mysql_num_rows(mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `phpbb_users` WHERE `username` = '$username' AND `user_password` = '$password_md5' LIMIT 1"));


$_SESSION['username'] = $username;
$_SESSION['password'] = $password_md5;
echo "You are now logged in with the username $username! <a href='index.php'>Home</a>"; [/code]

On other file:

if ($_SESSION['username']){
echo " [/code]

This, does not work, because phpbb is coding that is out of my knoledge. I will post phpbb's login.php file if it is needed.

For those more experianced people here that know how phpbb or a good forum runs, how can I make this work correctly?  ???

make sure session_start() is at the top of all of your pages that use session variables.
