Changed session handler to PHP, but _session keeps populating

Post by urzh » Fri May 17, 2019 12:03 am

Can anyone help me understand why my _session table fill up even though my handler is PHP in Global Config? I am seeing this happen for guests visiting and users logged in for several sites running the below versions. Is this being overwritten by a setting from another application in Joomla?

Joomla! 3.9.6 Stable
PHP 7.2.14
MySQL 5.7.25

I can do fpa if someone asks for it. Thanks

Please do FPA. Thanks.

Suggest that you temporarily, at least, disable all server-side caching, clear all server, browser and proxy caches (the last-mentioned, if applicable). Possibly consider using SQL TRUNCATE command on the _sessions table.

Done. I am not using cache, I can try the truncate later tomorrow. Can you explain the proxy cache? Thanks

So can anyone explain why my session tables still fill up?

Investigate why the FPA shows session handler as none.

? Doesn't none mean PHP? If so it's right...

@gws: "none" is the value Joomla writes to configuration.php when PHP session handler is selected. FPA only reports what it finds.

@urzh: did you TRUNCATE the _session table? What is your "major issue"?

@sozzled hi...yes, I did this on one DB. It cleared the rows but still the _sessions table is filling up when registered or guest visits the site.

My major issue I believe is related to this: viewtopic.php?f=708&t=971939


Thanks

Sorry. My PC crashed and I've spent the past 36 hours rebuilding it. I won't be much help to anyone for another few days.

My guess (and I'm taking a wild guess) is that there's some kind of caching involved here ... but I don't know what it is.

@sozzled thanks. One thing I am noticing, I was playing around with table_open_cache = 400 in my.cnf. Seems after I reduced this size from 800 to 400, I am not seeing the errors anymore reported here:

viewtopic.php?f=708&t=971939

Only mentioning this because it's cache. Below is my my.cnf config :

Code: Select all

# Example MySQL config file for medium systems.
#
# This is for a system with little memory (32M - 64M) where MySQL plays
# an important part, or systems up to 128M where MySQL is used together with
# other programs (such as a web server)
#

# /etc/my.cnf to set global options,
# mysql-data-dir/my.cnf to set server-specific options (in this

# ~/.my.cnf to set user-specific options.
#
# In this file, you can use all long options that a program supports.
# If you want to know which options a program supports, run the program
# with the "--help" option.

# Replication Slave (comment out master section to use this)
#
# To configure this host as a replication slave, you can choose between
# two methods :
#
# 1) Use the CHANGE MASTER TO command (fully described in our manual) -
#    the syntax is:
#
#    CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST=<host>, MASTER_PORT=<port>,
#    MASTER_USER=<user>, MASTER_PASSWORD=<password> ;
#
#    where you replace <host>, <user>, <password> by quoted strings and
#    <port> by the master's port number (3306 by default).
#
#    Example:
#
#    CHANGE MASTER TO MASTER_HOST='125.564.12.1', MASTER_PORT=3306,
#    MASTER_USER='joe', MASTER_PASSWORD='secret';
#
# OR
#
# 2) Set the variables below. However, in case you choose this method, then
#    start replication for the first time (even unsuccessfully, for example
#    if you mistyped the password in master-password and the slave fails to
#    connect), the slave will create a master.info file, and any later
#    change in this file to the variables' values below will be ignored and
#    overridden by the content of the master.info file, unless you shutdown
#    the slave server, delete master.info and restart the slaver server.
#    For that reason, you may want to leave the lines below untouched
#    (commented) and instead use CHANGE MASTER TO (see above)
#
# required unique id between 2 and 2^32 - 1
# (and different from the master)
# defaults to 2 if master-host is set
# but will not function as a slave if omitted
#server-id       = 2
#
# The replication master for this slave - required
#master-host     =   <hostname>
#
# The username the slave will use for authentication when connecting
# to the master - required
#master-user     =   <username>
#
# The password the slave will authenticate with when connecting to
# the master - required
#master-password =   <password>
#
# The port the master is listening on.
# optional - defaults to 3306
#master-port     =  <port>
