To share a session from Laravel to WordPress, you can create a custom authentication mechanism that allows users to log in to both platforms using the same credentials. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this:

  1. Set up a RESTful API in Laravel that handles user authentication. This API should allow users to log in, register, and retrieve user details.
  2. Implement a JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication mechanism in Laravel. When a user logs in or registers, generate a JWT token and store it in the user's session.
  3. In WordPress, create a custom login page that sends a POST request to your Laravel API to authenticate the user. If the user is successfully authenticated, store the JWT token in a cookie or session variable.
  4. Create a WordPress plugin that includes a custom authentication handler. When a user logs in to WordPress, check if the JWT token is present in the session or cookie. If it is, verify the token with your Laravel API and log the user in to WordPress.
  5. To share user data between Laravel and WordPress, you can make API calls to retrieve user details from Laravel in your WordPress plugin. Store the user data in WordPress user meta fields for easy access.


By following these steps, you can effectively share a session between Laravel and WordPress, allowing users to seamlessly navigate between both platforms with a single login.
