    can anyone help me get jabber integrated with phpBB ?

  2. bipolarmorgan

    is anyone alive in here?

  3. Link Mauve

    bipolarmorgan, Prosody has this module for instance: https://modules.prosody.im/mod_auth_phpbb3.html

  4. Link Mauve

    If you’re using another, check if they have such an authentication module.

  5. bipolarmorgan

    I'm using standard phpBB 3.2.7, it is supposed to have jabber builtin - but it gives me connect errors, so I'm assuming something is wrong, but I can't seem to debug what is wrong...

  6. Link Mauve

    Ah, dunno then, I’ve never used this software.

  7. Link Mauve

    Maybe wait for someone who has to wake up.

  8. Link Mauve

    bipolarmorgan, look for a log file.

  9. bipolarmorgan

    Thanks Link Mauve!

  10. bipolarmorgan

    I'll look into what that prosody module does as well, but at first look it appears to be for authenticating against the phpbb database? I'm not sure.

  12. Link Mauve

    That might be the other direction than what you want.

  13. bipolarmorgan

    I see, I might also be better suited to bug the forum at phpBB as well... but figured I would check everywhere first... LOL

  14. bipolarmorgan

    Thanks for trying... it is appreciated Link

    ask for example i join a xabber server from another server is there away for me to disclose private data?

  24. Licaon_Kter

    Join a MUC (chat) on Xabber from another server? No, unless you post it yourself, they don't see your IP, just that your server connects to them.

  25. kevin

    Licaon_Kter, are you able to execute shell scripts through an admin account?

  26. Licaon_Kter

    kevin: what do you mean?

  27. kevin

    the ad-hoc module

  28. kevin

    You are able to view ips, logs, last login

  29. Licaon_Kter

    kevin: well as with any server, yes

  30. kevin

    are you able to execute shell scripts into the server with adhoc?

  31. kevin

    if an admin account gets compromised

  32. Licaon_Kter

    kevin: into the server, via the xmpp admin account? No...
