    Forum software to integrate with our current user database in a easy way

    Hello,
    I'm looking for a forum software that I can integrate easily to our current user database. Instead of installing a new forum software that uses it specific user db, I want to integrate with the one I have now.

    My user db has some fields specific for my needs, but in general, I'm looking that it would integrate with these main fields:


    • user id
    • username
    • password (md5 encrypted)
    • user group



    If I could find a forum software that integrates with those fields on my current user db without much modification, or maybe a option to map fields with other user db.

    Any ideas welcome... thanks!
    Guillermo

    I'm pretty sure phpBB3 integrates. I assume vBulletin can too.

    Thanks everyone....

    I also found a forum software that can do this.... its called miniBB... the offer the ability to use external users database.

    http://www.minibb.com/synchronizing_minibb.html

    They even offer professional installation and modification to accomplish this:
    Synchronizing forums with the external members database: Includes integration with Your current users table, so members will be logged on forums automatically when logged in on the main site and otherwise. miniBB will only refer to Your existing users table, so there will be no need to duplicate the membership data. Few miniBB-related fields will be added to Your table, and miniBB's authorization module will be adopted to the existing login process. It is possible to synchronize miniBB that way with almost any kind of 3rd party software. All works can be performed live on Your server only. Completion time - about 1 business day.
