Is it remote connect to the phpBB server stop the forum and install the exporter plugin then start the forum and pick up the entire forum as one database file, then stop new nodeBB forum install plugin then start the new forum and import the file?
it's unclear from what's given.
I also have some perhaps unusual requirements :
I'm not interested in migrating accounts, in fact I specifically do not want to migrate accounts. the migration exists only as comfort for those who want to be able to look up the old archived threads (btw I will mark them all as read-only after migration) but effectively we are starting from scratch with new accounts.
So I'm not interested in migrating the accounts and I'm wondering if that's an issue? do posts necessarily need to be created with an account or is creating posts made by an unattributed user name possible? (if nodeBB attributes posts from the old forum archive to a new forum joinee that's perfectly fine by me, not so if nodeBB refuses that a new joinee use that name under pretext that it's already under use. New users and content must take priority)
will nodeBB allow this or will it require a account named "archivebot" for example to be "responsible", the "author" of all these posts. I'd prefer if I could at least preserve the author names buit if I can't that's an ok sacrifice.
Also will nodeBB allow the original dates for the posts? or will all of them be of the date of the migration?
TLDR: I don't know how to migrate from phpBB 3.0.9 to nodeBB 1.14.2 specifically there doesn't seem to be an upgrade path for those specific version numbers.
I am currently working on the Laravel website with forum as a part of the website, and I have chosen nodebb as forum platform. I am really new to SSO, and I don’t have much knowledge about node.js, and even mongo database. And I am not English, so if there is anything I am not really explaining well, please let me know.
Firstly, I am not sure what I want to achieve is possible. Ideally, after Laravel website (localhost:8000) user login, then clicked the forum link (nodebb – localhost:4567), then nodebb could login the Laravel user without login confirmation. The situation sounds like, I have already login with google account, when I try to login community.nodebb.org, nodebb community won’t ask me the login confirmation to login. I am not sure whether it is able to achieve, because it means a website user try to login another website without providing any information, even a token.
Secondly, in another case, it could be that a Laravel user login nodebb forum, and give auth to nodebb forum, then the user can login nodebb forum with Laravel user details. I have done a bit of research online, I think that I should expose my nodebb application to OAuth2orize (https://github.com/jaredhanson/oauth2orize). I have installed the OAuth2orize by running npm install oauth2orize, but after that I don’t know what else I should do, it said to create a OAuth server, but I have no idea where I should create this server, or where I could register grants, and do I need to do anything with Laravel site?
