NAME

Apache::Session::Generate::ModUsertrack - uses mod_usertrack for session ID generation

SYNOPSIS

  use Apache::Session::Flex;

  tie %session, 'Apache::Session::Flex', $id, {
      Store     => 'MySQL',
      Lock      => 'Null',
      Generate  => 'ModUsertrack',
      Serialize => 'Storable',
      ModUsertrackCookieName => 'usertrack', # optional
  };

DESCRIPTION

Apache::Session::Generate::ModUsertrack enables you to use cookie tracked by mod_usertrack as session id for Apache::Session framework. This module fits well with long-term sessions, so better using RDBMS like MySQL for its storage.

CONFIGURATION

This module accepts one extra configuration option.

ModUsertrackCookieName

Specifies cookie name used in mod_usertrack. Apache for default, so change this if you change it via CookieName directive in mod_usertrack.

LIMITATION WITHOUT MOD_PERL

This module first tries to fetch named cookie, but will in vain ONLY WHEN the HTTP request is the first one from specific client to the mod_usertrack enabled Apache web server. It is because if the request is for the first time, cookies are not yet baked on clients.

If you run scripts under mod_perl, this module tries to steal (not yet baked) cookie from Apache request notes.

See Apache for details.
