Hi,

I am building a small website which will be using various data sources to feed it's content. One of the data feeds is LinkedIn. Reading through the API documentation it's using OAuth. I have been trying to install it on my server but I have not been successful so far. That's despite of being on (1and1) managed server. Does anyone have experience with either getting OAuth up and running on 1and1? Or is there an alternative to OAuth which doesn't require adding module to Apache?

thanks,
Dan

I used "oauth-php" a while ago to interact with a twitter account and it was fairly simple, just download the package from Google code [1] and follow the ConsumerHowTo [2] with some good examples. Let me know if you need further help!
