Piwik_Session: restore support for file-based sessions

Reported by: vipsoft Owned by: vipsoft
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.6 Piwik 1.6
Component: Core Keywords:
Cc: Sensitive: no

Description

This will help in these scenarios:

  • users on shared hostinng with limited number of mysql connections causing dashboard widgets to fail
  • the file-based locks on the session files partially mitigates archive processing concurrency

This is going to be the default (lowest common denominator), a new config file setting.

For advanced users, use:

[General]
session_save_handler = dbtable

(In [5064]) refs #2602 - always start the session for file-based sessions; for non-file-based sessions (e.g., dbtable), we assume there won't be an issue with too few mysql client connections
