This package is meant to act a session manager handler using as container a database accessed using PEAR::DB package rather than using the default container which is based on files.

This can be useful for instance to store user session data of sites served using load balanced array of Web servers.

Simply include the class file, create a new instance of the class passing a PEAR::DB object.

You can now use PHP sessions as usual but the session data will be stored in your database.

Notice that there are some known problems using this method with one build of PHP 4.2.2, due to what seems to be a bug in the session_set_save_handler function. If you are using this PHP version your are recommended to upgrade.
