I have already asked if it is posible integrate the forum to an existent data base who is used by a web site. Now I gonna change the situation. Can another website use the forum's database in his login request? I mean the website needs an unsername and password in order to get conneted but i wanna use the same forum's database so i skip make a new database for the website. The goal is att when the user insert his username and password (their are the same as in the forum) get connected to the website and to the forum too.
If it is posible how can I do that?
If my post is not understanding just tell me and I gonna try explain in some another way
You would probably just need to access the JForum database during the authentication phase and check against the appropriate tables that the username and password match.
Given that the passwords are probably encrypted in the DB, you would need to know the mechanism that JForum uses for that and use the same one so you would actually compare the encripted passwords instead of the clear-text version.
Looking at the source you should be able to find which tables you need to access and the encrypting mechanism, so everything is there.
Good luck [originally posted on jforum.net by GreenEyed]
