No permission to download
Compatible XF 2.x versions
  1. 2.0
Additional requirements
php 5.6+
MIT Licence
Visible branding
Allows the setup of a dedicated session cache distinct from the normal XF cache

Defines a "sessionCache" section in addition to of a "cache" section. Takes all the same options, except $config['cache']['sessions']

  • In XenForo 2.1 the equivalent functionality is built-in.
  • If no 'sessionCache' section is defined or it is disabled, falls back on existing cache/mysql storage
  • Xenforo Session handling does not interact with php sessions
  • Does not require a particular caching solution
  • Only affects public sessions. Installer/Admin sessions are hard coded in XenForo 2 to use MySQL storage

A migration script is provided which knows how to copy MySQL or Redis Cache sessions to the new Session Cach Configuration.

Copying (from) memcache sessions is not supported.

For copying Redis/MySQL sessions to a separate cache: copy_sessions_to_cache.php
  1. Copy copy_sessions_to_cache.php to somewhere on the webserver.
  2. Edit the line:
    $dir = __DIR__ . '/html';

    To point to the webroot.
  3. Install add-on, configure sessionCache but disable.
  4. Run migration script.
  5. Configure sessionCache to be enabled.
  6. Note; some sessions will be lost, but not a large number.
