my issue with cakephp sessions

Posted on: June 12, 2008

Two days before this is posted on this blog, I encountered an issue with the sessions in cakephp on my personal cakephp project. I felt frustrated when I realized that the sessions do not load when logging in.

The part of the source code where I think it is the problem is in here in my users_controller.php:


So, I asked around on twitter using Twhirl about this sessions issue. Petixe replied and told me that I should save the sessions in database instead. So, I thought, yeah well, okay. But still, nothing changed.

chartjes suggested that I should change Security.level to ‘medium’. I already did this before going home from work yesterday. But still, nothing happened. And yes ,dhofstet, it is still the same result even if this is set to ‘low’.

To prove to my dear readers that I know what I am doing with the sessions, here’s a screenshot of the sessions successfully loaded on my local copy.

or maybe you just want id, username to be save in sessions?

Hey ajmacaro,

Thanks for visiting my site. sorry for the late reply.
I just implemented AuthComponent + Acl for the login and registration, so the login won’t be just using Sessions anymore.

thanks it working
