My application used to run PHPLIB for the sake of session variables. After migrating to PHP4, I made it use the PHP4 integreted session support (using cookies) and it seems to be working fine for most of the time.
Nevertheless, it will ocassionally loose the infromation contained within the session and get all active users disconnected and unable to log in again for a while.
I cannot say when it is going to happen again (it is unpredictable) but the fact is that it happens...

Thanks in advance,
Jakub Jermar

Can you include the [Session] section from your php.ini file?

This is my session configuration:

session.save_handler      = files   ; handler used to store/retrieve data
session.save_path         = /tmp    ; argument passed to save_handler
                                    ; in the case of files, this is the
                                    ; path where data files are stored
session.use_cookies       = 1       ; whether to use cookies              = PHPSESSID
                                    ; name of the session
                                    ; is used as cookie name
session.auto_start        = 1       ; initialize session on request startup
session.cookie_lifetime   = 0       ; lifetime in seconds of cookie
                                    ; or if 0, until browser is restarted
session.cookie_path       = /       ; the path the cookie is valid for
session.cookie_domain     =         ; the domain the cookie is valid for
session.serialize_handler = php     ; handler used to serialize data
                                    ; php is the standard serializer of PHP
session.gc_probability    = 1       ; percentual probability that the
                                    ; 'garbage collection' process is started
                                    ; on every session initialization
session.gc_maxlifetime    = 1440    ; after this number of seconds, stored
                                    ; data will be seen as 'garbage' and
                                    ; cleaned up by the gc process
session.referer_check     =         ; check HTTP Referer to invalidate
                                    ; externally stored URLs containing ids
session.entropy_length    = 0       ; how many bytes to read from the file
session.entropy_file      =         ; specified here to create the session id
; session.entropy_length    = 16
; session.entropy_file      = /dev/urandom
session.cache_limiter     = nocache ; set to {nocache,private,public} to
                                    ; determine HTTP caching aspects
session.cache_expire      = 180     ; document expires after n minutes
session.use_trans_sid     = 1       ; use transient sid support if enabled
                                    ; by compiling with --enable-trans-sid
