560. Notable PHP package: PHP Session MySQL Handler

By default PHP stores information of session variables in files, but applications can provide their own session handlers and store session data in other storage containers like databases. It is common to store session data in MySQL databases.

One issue to be concerned with sessions is that only one script can change session data at a time of a given user.

For databases, transactions could be used to prevent that multiple scripts try to change the same user session data in a way that could cause inconsistency.

However, the use of sessions may cause that the table that contains session data records locks the access to session records of all users.

This class provides a better solution by using row level locking, thus allowing that session records of different users be changed at the same time by different scripts.
