This will help in these scenarios:

  • users on shared hostinng with limited number of mysql connections causing dashboard widgets to fail
  • the file-based locks on the session files partially mitigates archive processing concurrency

This is going to be the default (lowest common denominator), a new config file setting.

For advanced users, use:

session_save_handler = dbtable

(In [5052]) fixes #2602, fixes #2574, refs #2548, refs #2597

reopening, as a reminder to create FAQ "How to deploy Piwik on multiple servers and enable database session storage?" or something similar

Anthon Pang

(In [5064]) refs #2602 - always start the session for file-based sessions; for non-file-based sessions (e.g., dbtable), we assume there won't be an issue with too few mysql client connections
