Simple question guys, but a difficult concept it seems...


How can I share database info for my site, and allow users to login to two different Joomla sites with the same information?


Note: One of my sites is Joomla 1.5 and the other is 2.5, so would I have to make them both the same version to do this?

How would I go about approaching this?

Oh, and I am a programmer, so no worries if things are complicated, I can try to understand the concepts. I'm just mostly wondering if this is even a probable goal to strive for, and if others have tried this themselves.

Thanks! I will keep an eye on this thread, as with my new sites, I will eventually want to include this feature.

I think it involves coding. I'm not sure. Database manipulation possibly? Not sure, good luck though.


OT; Love globe of geek.

Lol, yes it would involve database manipulation *in a way*. And glad you like GlobeOfGeek! If I can get some of these features working, we will enhance the sites like never before!

Yeah, but doesn't that component just make two sites with the same joomla backend? I'm need to have two "FULLY" seperate sites, with different backends and everything. I make the assumtion that to do this I must change the database config some how, and share the user tables maybe. Problem is that different joomla sites have different database prefixes.

Should I make both of my joomla sites have the same table prefix, and then only use one user table? Maybe that would work.

Anyway, going to install Xampp and try some stuff out, just to make sure all goes well.

Alright thanks, I will read up more on that since it's seeming to have what I need.

I bet this could be tested out on Xampp, so I will go try!

Thanks for the help, I will return with updates.
