Thoughts on “How to Log into Your phpBB Dashboard

  • I did an install of of phpBB using Softaculous Installer twice today.  After both installs, I have not been able to login to my account at all.  It clearly shows the welcome message posted by my chosen user name but it doesn’t actually allow me to log in.  It doesn’t recognize my password.  It also doesn’t recognize the email address I associated with the account.  Is there a fix for this or a workaround?

    • That is not the normal behavior. You may be able to go into the database and change the email address for the user. From there, you can try the forgot password function.

  • Can a user post comment without registering and logging in? Does the ACP give such permissions? For example the way I am posting my comment here in this text box.

    • Hello Sandhya,

      Yes if you go to Group Form Permissions and define the Guest roles to allow them to reply and start new topics it will not require registration.
