Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
My questions are:
Is it possible to integrate our php applications (require user authentication) into an existing system with php web services?
If so, how would this be accomplished?
What is the best way to accomplish this?
Is this secure?
Any helpful information or direction would be great!
Thank you all!
You should make your content authenticate from a GET command (as well as POST) that way its much easier to add custom links to the LMS with user/pass embedded without the expense of custom development.
depends how tight you want the integration - getting sso to the 2 systems isnít 2 hard for a quick and dirty id probably look at putting triggers on the IIS authentication system so that if you add a user to the LMS it creates a user on the php/mysql side this keeps the 2 authentication databases in sync.
Thereís a tone of other issues if your PHP developers have coded the system to be portable you might be able to switch databases and use sqlserver.
If your using modrewite your going to have more problems and will need to look at isapi filters
