In CakePHP 1.2 beta version, when you attempt to use/set Sessions in app/config/core.php, you might encounter this problem:

Fatal error: Class ‘ConnectionManager’ not found in CORE/cake/libs/session.php on line 704.

When I tried changing these settings:

Configure::write(‘’, ‘database’);
Configure::write(‘Session.table’, ‘cake_sessions’);
Configure::write(‘Session.database’, ‘default’);
Configure::write(‘Session.start’, false);

The error appears.
