to use a forum script like phpBB, I would also like to use a CMS package
like Mambo, and a file sharing system. Since I will be storing confidential
content and the forums are for authorized users only...I'd like all of these
packages to use the same user authentication. Furthermore, I'd like to
allow users to be able to create an account but not access the files until
their account is approved (phpBB) has this feature built in.
I don't know how to integrate all of the different packages that I plan to
use. Is using htaccess files a good way to go? If so, are there scripts
for managing user accounts?
Thanks for any help...

invoked, so you can see what methods you'll need to override.
