One Form to Multiple Databases
Posted 28 August 2005 - 08:41 PM
I also have a Form where members can register. The Form has Login and PassWord entry fields and the values are stored in the Member master table in a different databse.
Is there someway I could also populate the Login/Password of all the applications on submission of the above form?
Would the member then be able to be "Logged In" while he accesses the different areas across the site? Or would it need a session varaiable or something like that?
Thanks for the support

If you did want to have a seperate table for members then you would have to go through each program edditing the code, and i can imaagine there would be alot.

But the problem is that the session variable created by my regular Login page does not match the other programs' authentication scripts. I'm forced to change lotsa code especially in phpBB.
Also, changing the login auth script to read from another table apart its own created some other problems.
What I've done is ask the Registering Members to use the same credentials and register separately in each application. Actually, I started developing another time-bound site in the meanwhile and so the earlier one is in temporary cold-storge :-)
Thanks Chris, jamie for the suggests. I'll keep this post updated as I work on a solution. Ideas and more suggestions welcome...
