Transfer Users Form One Site To Another?

Post by Z9iT » Mon Nov 21, 2011 9:15 am

Hello
There are two websites which serve different kind of contents and are not related to each other in any manner.
Both of the websites require users to register/login to access the contents.
One website is old and has many users , and since the other is just launched, it has none.

The requirements are two :

1) Users from old website can login to both the websites with their present credentials.
i.e how can we copy the present user credentials from the old website to the new.

2) Any new registration/ user changes to one website can be synchronized to the other website.


Warm Regards.

@Jenny
Thanks for the swift response.

However Userport is still an alpha release (as indicated on the JED page) thus we are reluctant to use that.
Moreover we want something which can synchronize the users on both the websites.

I know that phpMyAdmin has an option to synchronize one database as slave with the other,
however i am not sure if it can serve our purpose because both the websites are totally different except for the users.
is it possible to work around with this scenario if at all?

Warm Regards

Unfortunately Joomla! forum was no help to our specific problem.

After hours of 'trial n error' we have found a manual and fool-proof solution to export users.
This is working well, atleast for us, and we shall soon put the tutorial for everyone!

We are still working on synchronizing the users, by some manual way.
