NAME ^

Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session::MySQL - Plugin providing session storage

SYNOPSIS ^

  my $obj = $c->plugin('Session')->method( ... );     # Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session->method()

    or

  $c->plugin('Session')->method( ... );

DESCRIPTION ^

Store persistent data in a MySQL database while maintaining a stateful session using web browser cookies.

PREREQUISITES ^

This package is part of a larger distribution and was NOT intended to be used directly. In order for this plugin to work properly, the following packages must be installed:

  Apache2::WebApp
  Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Cookie
  Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::DBI
  Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session
  Params::Validate

INSTALLATION ^

From source:

  $ tar xfz Apache2-WebApp-Plugin-Session-MySQL-0.X.X.tar.gz
  $ perl MakeFile.PL PREFIX=~/path/to/custom/dir LIB=~/path/to/custom/lib
  $ make
  $ make test
  $ make install

Perl one liner using CPAN.pm:

  $ perl -MCPAN -e 'install Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session::MySQL'

Use of CPAN.pm in interactive mode:

  $ perl -MCPAN -e shell
  cpan> install Apache2::WebApp::Plugin::Session::MySQL
  cpan> quit

Just like the manual installation of Perl modules, the user may need root access during this process to insure write permission is allowed within the installation directory.

REQUIREMENTS ^

The database table to store session information is auto-generated. Since this is the case, the MySQL users must have CREATE privileges.

In case you want to manually create this table, you can run the following SQL statement on the MySQL command-line:

  CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS sessions (
  id char(32) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
  a_session text;

CONFIGURATION ^

Unless it already exists, add the following to your projects webapp.conf

  [session]
  storage_type = mysql
  expires = 1h

OBJECT METHODS ^

Please refer to Apache2::WebApp::Session for method info.

SEE ALSO ^
