I have two sites on seperate servers that need to exchange information. The first site would collect data from a user and then it would send the data to the second site which does all of the processing. What would be the best way to do this in PHP?

Would this call for WSDL, or something like that? Any pointers to existing technologies or tutorials would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

The sending server can use the curl library of php to send <form> type data to a php page on the second server specially designed for that. The page on the second server would be private and you might want to put some security in it so it can not be called normally. That page would just recieve the form info, store it to the database on the second server, and then return the result to the curl function on the first server, and then the rest of the php page on the first server would be executed.
