The session modules make use of HTTP cookies, and as such can fall victim to Cross Site Scripting attacks, or expose potentially private information to clients. Please ensure that the relevant risks have been taken into account before enabling the session functionality on your server. This submodule of mod_session provides support for the storage of user sessions within a SQL database using the mod_dbd module. Sessions can either be anonymous, where the session is keyed by a unique UUID string stored on the browser in a cookie, or per user, where the session is keyed against the userid of the logged in user. SQL based sessions are hidden from the browser, and so offer a measure of privacy without the need for encryption. Different webservers within a server farm may choose to share a database, and so share sessions with one another. For more details on the session interface, see the documentation for the mod_session module.
