Hi guys,
I'm runing an old an seriously hacked version of FUD which doesn't want to cleanly upgrade. I'm wondering if it is possible to install a new version beside (on the same machine) my old forums but have the two of them use the same authentication system and pm system, to share the data file and the database tables for these, but to have a different file and table for posts?

Mocara.

You could make the 2nd forum use the table from the 1st forum install. To do this you need to edit db.inc.t and make the q() and uq() functions use a table translation wrapper. This wrapper would replace current user table with the one used by the prior install.
