It sounds like that you might be using files as the session driver, meaning that your sessions are stored in the App container itself. The problem with this is that every time the container gets redeployed you would lose all of the sessions.

What I could suggest is to change your Laravel sessions driver to either cookie or database so that the sessions are actually persisted even if there is a deployment or if you have multiple web components.

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby
