Same list of users on different forums

edited January 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I have two different forums: and
I need: to give users access to both of them when users enter login/password on
Question: How can I do it?

At the moment I came up with this:

  1. Make a lines in config.php the same:
$ Configuration ['Garden'] ['Cookie'] ['Salt'] = 'XXXXXXXXXX';
$ Configuration ['Garden'] ['Cookie'] ['Domain'] = '';
  1. Make a tables GDN_User the same.

Does this version will work? If not, what did I do wrong?
Thank you and sorry my bad english, please.

P.S. At the moment I'm not interested in automatic synchronization. I just need to know what I need to synchronize.

    Related to your question of which I could not find an answer, I also have 2 forums in 1 domain, each one displaying different relevant information which I control with the ExcludeCategories and HideCategory plugins. The 2 forums share the same mysql database in order to keep the users and login details for both the same. I was hoping that It happens when login to the one forum, then go to the other forum you will not need to login again. However this is not happening. I suspect the login scripts of the 2 forums are different which causes this. Any idea how I can overcome this problem? It also happens when you are returning to the first forum you need to login again although I have ticked the "stay login " box. I am trying to stay away from jsconnect as I think this is a overkill for this purpose. Any advice will very much be appreciated. Thanks.
