SessionHandlerRedis by Netcarver

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


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.


By default the module will attempt to connect to redis on 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     = '';
$config->redis_session_server_port   = 6379;
$config->redis_session_server_db     = 0;
$config->redis_session_server_prefix = "PHPSESSID:";
$config->redis_session_server_ttl    = 1800;



Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
