AuthMe Reloaded

9 - Wrong password on phpbb3 bridge

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Save all phpbb3 forum users to other DB only for AuthMe
2. Login as user with password "xxx" like: /login xxx and press ENTER

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Wrong password. I want to see: welcome, good pasword mate! :)

What version of the product are you using?
AuthMe 2.5.1 and Bukkit 1.1-R2

Do you have an error log of what happened?
2012-01-30 10:34:53 [INFO] [Spout] Successfully authenticated ultramc's Spoutcraft client. Running client version: 1070
2012-01-30 10:35:12 [INFO] [AuthMe] §7[§cAdmin§7] ultramc§f used the wrong password

Please provide any additional information below.
In config file Ive got:
        passwordHash: MD5
but as far as Google says phpbb3 got MD5 hash which is hashed -.- AuthDB plugin could handle it coz it had custom hashes only for phpbb3, AuthDB seems not, is it?

    @d4rkwarriors: Go

    Changing passwords in game and in forums will be possible,but will not affect each other.

    Change password in game = forum not changed

    Change password in forums = game password not changed

    Thats OK for me.

    but if they change password in game what should happen? or viceverse if they do it with forum?

    i release it on beta for you so u can test if hash process is correct and then release to all ppl

    @d4rkwarriors: Go

    My case goes like:

    1. User cretes and activates account on phpbb3 forum board.

    2. User activates his account in game giving his name and password on special form which copies password, and username from phpbb3 DB to AuthME DB (phpbb3 > AuthDB password copy)

    ! Tables that you want to include are: mySQLColumnLastLogin: whatever mySQLColumnPassword: user_password mySQLColumnName: username_clean (important, its lowercase plain username) mySQLColumnIp: whatever

    So your method is compleatly OK and expected. Are you planning to realease it to public? if yes, when :)

    hey i have implemented it, but there are some problems like, my method should work only if yours players is registered before on phpbb, beacuse there are some field in phpbb3 that require web registration like email name and more others.. for a complete integration, like users can register to phpbb board thru minecraft by command /register i have to take more time on rewrite command check sintax and move session system..

    You want to check AuthDB plugin (outdated) - Used it since Minecraft 1.7.0 till 1.0.1 - it has that implemented:

    so as i see phpbb3 use his own hash algorithum with urandom + md5 , so thats the fact u have wrong password, authme simple did md5 hash.

    iam looking for some wiki page on phpbb3 that explain his own algorithum, i never use phpbb so this will take a while, i think u can upload includes/functions.php so i can check what really do phpbb_hash and try to add this feature

    About pgpbb3 hash and encryption: "phpBB3 uses phpass which makes use of MD5 with salting to help resist bruteforce attacks."
