Apache::Session::MySQL(3) An implementation of Apache::Session


use Apache::Session::MySQL;
#if you want Apache::Session to open new DB handles:
tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::MySQL', $id, {
DataSource => 'dbi:mysql:sessions',
UserName => $db_user,
Password => $db_pass,
LockDataSource => 'dbi:mysql:sessions',
LockUserName => $db_user,
LockPassword => $db_pass
#or, if your handles are already opened:
tie %hash, 'Apache::Session::MySQL', $id, {
Handle => $dbh,
LockHandle => $dbh


This module is an implementation of Apache::Session. It uses the MySQL backing store and the MySQL locking scheme. See the example, and the documentation for Apache::Session::Store::MySQL and Apache::Session::Lock::MySQL for more details.
