i have the following situation:

1. phpBB 3.0.0 with many users
2. MediaWiki 1.11.2 with many users

*some* of the users have the same usernames in both, but some users have different usersnames in the board and the wiki.

some users just have a board account, some have just a wiki account, some have both.


now my question: what happens to the existing wiki users when i install the extension?
will they still be able to login? should i delete them?
is the table even used afterwards or does the wiki just use the phpbb table then?

thanks for help,

aton

mw uses it to track usernames, but users will be required to login using their phpBB username and password.

hm i think i now understand how it all works...

so the best would be to delete all old mediawiki users so that they are created once people log in with their phpbb accounts.

since there are names that could be registered in phpbb while being an old mediawiki account, the registration could overwrite these users (perhaps giving away their permissions to the new user?).

am i right so far?

Thats how you keep sysop access. Make the two user names match.
