Using wordpress databases from other server (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I would like to know is there some way to use wordpress databases from other sites. I am trying to create API to one webservice that uses wordpress and I would like to somehow be able to login users and to somehow then use somekind of authorization key to access users data.

    Scenario would be something like this.

    User is accessing to web page http://www.firstpage.com and would like to use application that takes connection to my API.

    User is redirected to WordPress based webservice to login to his(her) account.

    WordPress sends somekind of authorization key to http://www.firstpage.com, that this application can use, to access Users data.

    Basicly that's it. I've tried to get WordPress cookies and sending them back to webservice and trying to use them to access users data, but I haven't succeed.

    So I would be very pleased if someone could help me. If i explained this little hard, please ask :)

    Is there any way to use cookie that wp-login.php creates, to identify user?
