Session doesnot work in nginx. php-fpm create new session file every time

  • Posted October 19, 2014

My application cannot read (already created ) session file. so when I try to make two file 1.php:



echo $_SESSION['test']

when I browser 1.php, it will crease a session file(in session.save_path) sess_… with out error. When browse 2.php again create another sess_… file with error: ** Notice: Undefined index:test** I have given access to the session folder

chmod -R 0777 /var/lib/php5/session

(same problem when I use /tmp also)

That’s the reason I cannot login in any php application. can anyone explain me what’s going on?

I have nginx, varnish and php-fpm Thank you


mkdir /var/lib/php/session chmod -R 777 /var/lib/php/session

even when I refresh 1.php, everytime it create new session file(sess_…).

Problem Solved !!! I commented unset req.http.cookie and it’s working

    # Happens before we check if we have this in cache already.
    # Typically you clean up the request here, removing cookies you don't need,
    # rewriting the request, etc.
#       if (!(req.url ~ "wp-(login|admin)")) {
#                unset req.http.cookie;
#        }
