how to automate login on phpBB

P: n/a
Hi,

I recently downloaded a copy of the popular message board software,
phpBB (http://www.phpbb.com/). I'm trying to create a script that
will auto login a user to their admin section, after creating my admin
username and password (admin/admin123). However, I'm not able to do
it.

I tried creating a page with the following:

<html>
<head></head>
<body onLoad="document.forms[0].submit();">
<form name="f" action="login.php" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="username" id="username"
value="admin">
<input type="hidden" name="password" id="password"
value="admin123">
<input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="" />
</form>
</body>
</html>

Does anyone know how this can be done with this particular software?

- Dave

Dave,

I'd suggest you check the PhPBB forums. There are lots of knowledgeable
people there.
