Hey guys, I wanted to share something with everyone. I hope this is helpful. This is basically a native solution to easily store PHP session data in a MySQL database. Session variables contain data that is saved for a specific user by associating the user with a unique identity. Typically, PHP would store session variables in a local file system on the server by default. While this may be acceptable to many people who are running small to moderate PHP applications, some larger applications that require load balancing would need to be run on multiple servers with a load balancer. In such cases, each server running PHP would need a way to ensure that sessions continue to work properly. One common way to achieve this is to override where PHP opens, reads, writes, and destroys the session variables so that it can perform these operations on a table inside of a MySQL database. When this is performed, the web application can gain advantages such as session management, session logging, and session interactions. I have provided my source code for your reference here: https://github.com/dominicklee/PHP-MySQL-Sessions Hope this helps someone out!
