Bug #4625 Session fails to write file
Submitted: 2000-05-26 22:30 UTC Modified: 2000-08-01 22:52 UTC
From: james at clickhouse dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Session related
PHP Version: 4.0 Release Candidate 2 OS: RedHat Linux 6.0 - Linux 2.2.5
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Session management seems to be writing the /tmp/sess_[md5] file quite inconsistantly.  Sometime it creates a blank file, sometimes it write the file the first time, and never writes it again.

Two object instances are being stored.  session_register() is called for each immediately before it's existance is checked by the script.  

It may be worthwhile to note that the session cookie is renamed before session_start() is called, and all calls to session functions are made from within other functions.

PHP4-RC2 is build with: 
./configure --host="i686-pc-linux-gnu" \ 
--with-mysql=/usr/local \ 
--with-apache=$APSRCDIR \ 
--enable-track-vars \ 
--enable-sysvshm \ 
--enable-sysvsem \ 
--enable-debugger \ 
--disable-short-tags; 

Apache 1.3.12 is built with: 
--activate-module=src/modules/php4/libphp4.a

Are you using a handler for your Apache log files (i.e. rotatelogs)? The observed behaviour has been experienced by users who have many virtualhosts and who use rotatelogs extensively.

We don't have any custom log handlers, nor virtual hosts.  There are a lot of mod_perl content handlers though.

The problem has not resurfaced lately, so perhaps something else has changed in the CVS tree for the project that has eliminated the problem.  I was beginning to suspect a lack of filehandles, or some such problem.
