This is a PHP class that acts as a wrapper for PHP’s default session handling functions but instead of storing session data in flat files it stores them in a MySQL database, thus providing both better security and better performance.
The Zebra_Session class is also a solution for applications that are scaled across multiple web servers (using a load balancer or a round-robin DNS) and where the user’s session data needs to be available.
Session data is stored in a MySQL database, so they can be accessed by other apps or services.
Zebra_Session‘s code is heavily commented and generates no warnings/errors/notices when PHP’s error reporting level is set to E_ALL.
· PHP 4.4.9 or higher
· MySQL 4.1.22 or higher
