WebFaction
Community site: login faq

Hey,

So I've had my account up and running for a few months now, and so far everything has been running great. Now I'd like to expand my site by adding some new features - specifically, a sort of text-based map game similar to Risk. Most of the testing and development for this game will be on my home machine, which is fine, but eventually I'll have to do some live testing too. Furthermore, when the game is up, I don't want problems with the game to affect the main site. So, I think what I need is to put the game on a separate webfaction account.

HOWEVER, while the game mostly has its own set of data, I'd really like to be able to pull user data from the main site. Is there any way to do cross-referencing like this? I would of course know the username/passwords of the databases on both sites considering that I would be the owner of both.

Yes, you can get remote access enabled on your database by filing a support ticket so that your new account(most probably on a new server) can connect to to your current user's database on the older server.
