PostgreSQL Session Save Handler

VII. PostgreSQL Session Save Handler


This module is EXPERIMENTAL. That means that the behaviour of these functions, these function names, in concreto ANYTHING documented here can change in a future release of this package WITHOUT NOTICE. Be warned, and use this module at your own risk.


About PostgreSQL Session Save Handler

This module provide additional session save handler for session module using PostgreSQL as a storage. user session save handler may be used, but this module is written in C. Therefore, this module is roughly 2 times faster than save handler written in PHP script.

Fail-over and load balance is planned to be implemented, but they are not available now.

Note: There will be functions for this module, but it is not available now.

This module works only under UNIX like OS.


short installation note:

  • You need at least PHP 4.1, PostgreSQL 7.1 and MM 1.1.3

  • Untar the tar.gz archive into php4/ext (Latest official releases can be found at SourceForge PHP Form Extension Project)

  • If the new directory is now called something like session_pgsql. You should name it to session_pgsql (except you only want to build it as self-contained php-module)

  • run ./buildconf in php4

  • run configure with --with-session-pgsql (and your other options)

  • make; make install

  • that's it.


PostgreSQL session save handler is still under development. Refer to README file in source distribution for configuration details.
