Apache::Session::Store::DB_File(3) Use DB_File to store persistent objects


use Apache::Session::Store::DB_File;
my $store = new Apache::Session::Store::DB_File;


This module fulfills the storage interface of Apache::Session. The serialized objects are stored in a Berkeley DB file using the DB_File Perl module. If DB_File works on your platform, this module should also work.


This module requires one argument in the usual Apache::Session style. The name of the option is FileName, and the value is the full path of the database file to be used as the backing store. If the database file does not exist, it will be created. Example:

 tie %s, 'Apache::Session::DB_File', undef,
    {FileName => '/tmp/sessions'};
