Okay, I read the "How can i share tables between sites with MySQL?" That's not what I want.

What I am trying to do is have several independant XOOPS sites with ONE user database. I want all the features on the sites to be independant except for the user data, cookies and logins. So, if someone registers on one site they are registered on all 4. If they log in to one they are logged on to them all.

Is there any way to do this? I know it sounds crazy, but it would help me a bunch.

P.S.- This user database is almost 10,000 people with 10-15 new users per day. I just don't want them to have to register seperately for each of the sites.

Actually, they can log in to them all seperately, as long as their one registration logs them in to them all.

That looks totally microsoft to me. I want to do it on Linux with mySQL. I could be missing something since 99% of the documentation is in French.

Actually, if the theme changer module worked I could do it all with ONE installation and I wouldn't have a problem.

Nevermind. with a slight modification I got the theme changer module to work, but the login doesn't work right on masked re-direct URLs. So that doesn't solve my problem

I STILL need to figure out a way to run 3 sites on one user database.

I'm going to try creating a database just for the user parts of the sites. I just have a feeling that will screw everything else up.

However, I think the theme changer might come in handy later.

The XOOPS authentification is great if you have LDAP or one of the other supported servers, but what about those with limited knowledge or on shared hosting.

Personally I'd like to see the multisite hack made standard in addition to the above, to allow sharing of tables, if you share the user tables, use same cookie/session name, It should work. Obviously something would need to be added to use correct urls for avatars. (addition to connect to other server DB's would be cool too).

Speaking of multisite hack:

Does anyone know if the multisite hack OR the multix module work? If so, will they allow me to do what I am attempting?

Hi Nekro,

I need to run 4 sites on the same user database. I just need users to be able to register once for all 4 sites.
