Connect to multiple MySql Databases

Connect to multiple MySql Databases

Hi All,


I am extremely new to Magento and have a question - it will be great if some one can provide some guidance on how to achieve this Smiley Happy

I currently have a MySQL database which is created from my primary website. This MySQL database hosts all the login information of my members to Website 1. 


I have recently created Website 2 using Magento. I would like my members from Website 1 to be able to log into Website 2? If there any way to associate the credential information of both MySQL databases on the Magento website for members to log in? 


If this doesn't make sense - i will try to explain it another way Smiley Happy


I truely hope someone can help me Smiley Happy

Thanks in advance,

1) You can load all your tables into the same database and share the tables.


2) You can use your current sites API to access the login info, you will then have to create an extension to validate the user on the Magento side.
