Access joomla database from external webiste

Hello!

I hope someone can point me in the right direction.
I'm working on a joomla portal, where users must be created simultaneously as in some other website I prepared. This means, when someone registers on my website (not joomla), same user should be created on my joomla website.

I figure there must be a way where I can connect from that website to the joomla database and manually add a user. Someone probably did that before me, but I didn't find a way yet (i'm out of googling ideas :)).

So, if someone could tell me which info do I need to be able to access joomla database (and if necessary, which settings do I have to change to make this possible) and a simple example of the code I can use? I run joomla 1.5.14.

It would make my day - seriously (been bugging me for too long now).
