The e-commerce.

pbpBB2 and osC shared account creation


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

i need help with this contrib. i did everything as instructed (i think) but i don't know how to log in as admin. in my database for the oscommerce table i only have the default 1 customer named john doe. his customer id is 1. for the phpbb user table there is 2 users. one is anonymous with id -1 and the other is admin with id 2.


in my oscommerce admin there is a link that says forum admin which is suppose to take me to the forum admin index page but when i click it i am taken to my store homepage and asked to log in. i don't know what to put in. i tried putting in the email address and password that was setup when i first installed the forum but it's saying that there is no match for email address and password.


when i try to login via the forum at the bottom of the page and put in the email address and password i am taken back to my store home page and asked to login. i get the same error saying no match.


can someone please tell me what i am doing wrong? do i have to create a customer account for myself and make that id2?

i don't understand this part of the instructions:


If you didn't have any customer account, now it is a good time to create one for yourself, to make the #2 customer_id account as the admin user_id #2 in phpBB later.


if i create a customer account, how do i make it #2 if i can't log into phpbb admin? i'm confused.


i have been at this for a couple of days now and i have searched everywhere to fix this problem.

the part that creates the admin account is at the very beginning of the instructions where it says how to modify the database. if you dont have that you wont have a linked admin account.
