    Can VB be set up to use external UserIDs and passwords?

    I think that title says it all.

    We've already got a site with a members only area that uses userIDs and passwords. We're looking for a BBS that can be configured to work with those ID/passes already set up, so users don't have to re-register, etc.

    FWIW - IDs & passes are not in a MySQL DB.

    Do you need to know anything else?

    Can this be done?

    As of this time theres no default vBulletin option to use information from a database, let alone a non mysql database.

    It would probally require extensive modification/customization of vBulletin to work like that.

      Too bad, this is probably the best & cleanest BBS I've ever used.

      Thanks for the quick answer.

        There was a hack released over at for basic ldap authetication but you may need to modifiy to suit your setup.
