FluxBB 1.5 External Authentication
A package that allows for external authentication with FluxBB 1.5, integrating directly with the Laravel 4 framework.
Step 1: Install package through Composer
Add this line to the
require section of your
Alternately, you can use the Composer command-line tool by running this command:
composer require franzliedke/auth-fluxbb
composer install to actually install the package.
Step 2: Register the service provider
In your Laravel application, edit the
app/config/app.php file and add this
line to the
Step 3: Configure the location of your FluxBB installation
In order to read some configuration values, the path to your FluxBB installation needs to be configured.
To copy the package configuration file, run this command:
php artisan config:publish franzliedke/auth-fluxbb
You can then edit
path option to point to the root directory of your FluxBB
installation. Make sure it ends with a slash.
Step 4: Enable the new authentication adapter
In your application, edit the
app/config/auth.php file and set the
option to "fluxbb1", so that it looks like this:
'driver' => 'fluxbb1',
Step 5 (optional): Set up views for resetting passwords
Follow the default Laravel instructions.
The reset system will work almost out of the box. Just change the reset callback function in the generated controller so that
sha1() is used rather than
Hash::make(), and use a DB query rather than Eloquent's
Note that this does not use the same reset process as in FluxBB, which simply generates and sends new passwords to the user rather than letting the user choose.
Once installed, you can use the authentication feature of Laravel as you always do, with Laravel magically using FluxBB's database and cookie behind the scenes.
Note: This package will not work if your FluxBB installation uses a SQLite2 database, as this database type is not supported by Laravel.
