Session handler module for ProcessWire that uses Redis as the back-end session store.

SessionHandlerRedis

PHP Session Handler module for ProcessWire that uses Redis as the back-end storage engine.

The Need


Using Redis as the back-end storage engine allows you to store your session data in the memory of a dedicated or shared redis server. This allows sessions to be shared across multiple front-end instances of ProcessWire.

Config


By default the module will attempt to connect to redis on 127.0.0.1 using the default redis port of 6379. It will use a TTL of 30 mins (1800seconds) for all session keys and will prefix them with PHPSESSID: and store them all in the default redis DB (number 0).

You can change any of these defaults by adding the following lines to your config.php file (adjusting as needed)...

$config->redis_session_server_ip     = '127.0.0.1';
$config->redis_session_server_port   = 6379;
$config->redis_session_server_db     = 0;
$config->redis_session_server_prefix = "PHPSESSID:";
$config->redis_session_server_ttl    = 1800;

“Indeed, if ProcessWire can be considered as a CMS in its own right, it also offers all the advantages of a CMF (Content Management Framework). Unlike other solutions, the programmer is not forced to follow the proposed model and can integrate his/her ways of doing things.” —Guy Verville, Spiria Digital Inc.
