DESCRIPTION

Catalyst::Plugin::Session::Store::Redis is a session storage plugin for Catalyst that uses the Redis (http://redis.io/) key-value database.

CONFIGURATION

redis_server

The IP address and port where your Redis is running. Default: 127.0.0.1:6379

redis_debug

Boolean flag to turn Redis debug messages on/off. Default: 0, i.e. off

Turing this on will cause the Redis Perl bindings to output debug messages to STDOUT. This setting does not influence the logging this module does via $c->log

redis_reconnect

Boolean flag. Default: 0, i.e. off.

It is highly recommended that you enable this setting. If set to 0, your app might not be able to reconnect to Redis if the Redis server was restarted.

I leave the default of setting at 0 for now because changing it might break existing apps.

NOTES

Expired Sessions

This store does not automatically expires sessions. There is no need to call delete_expired_sessions to clear any expired sessions.

domm: No idea what this means.

session expiry

Currently this module does not use Redis Expiry to clean out old session. I might look into this in the future. But patches are welcome!
