Now that YAF will be using membership provider in the new version, I have a question.
I have several, large websites, that I would like to make all the forums, website login, etc work together. My team is also working on a game, which, I'd also like to be integrated with everything else. I basically want to know if it's possible I can set up a dedicated database for just the membership related tables (ASPNET Membership provider). I want to do this because I want my account-related information stored on a dedicated database so that I can mirror that across multiple servers in the future (Don't need to ATM). I run 3 forum systems and I would like all the forums to use the database so that the account information is the same, but nothing else. I want them running on different app pools... Each forum has different settings, themes, etc, and I want them stored on the proper database. In the future, I may also have to run a dedicated account server. Right now I have two instances of SQL05 running on separate accounts. One is for website/forums and one is for customers.
Basically by doing this, it allows me to expand much easier with a lot less work. Since I have a game in the making, I want this all integrated together. I'm also hosting another project for someone else, and I want their forums/accounts integrated with my stuff.
This shouldn't be too hard, even if I had to mod it (I don't want to though) I can. Has anyone done this?
