README

This library is meant to work as a Session Handler for PHP that is compatible with express-session.

This library writed for SOA (Service-oriented architecture) projects for sharing session between a Node.js application and services writed on PHP.

Requirements

  • PHP: 7.2 or greater
  • phpredis
  • php_serialize Standart PHP Serialize Handler.

This library now created for using express-session with the connect-redis Session Store as common session store.

Installation

Install Redis

You can install it using pecl install redis

In Docker file:

FROM php:fpm
...
RUN pecl install redis && docker-php-ext-enable redis

Composer

Just run to get the package from packagist.org:

composer require geekjob/expressjs-php-session-handler

Setup and Usage

Configure Node.js application

app.use(session({
	name: 'sid',
	secret: 'secret key',
	cookie: {
		// Share cookie through sub domains if you use many domains for service architecture
		domain : '.your.domain',
		maxAge : Date.now() + 60000
	},
	store: new RedisStore({
		host  : 'redis',
		port  : 6379,
		client: redis,
		prefix: 'session:',
		ttl   : 3600 // 60 min
	})
}));

Configure runtime

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

\GeekJOB\ExpressjsSessionHandler::register([
	'name'   => 'sid',
	'secret' => 'secret key',
	'cookie' => [
		'domain'  => '.your.domain', // Share cookie through sub domains
		'path'    => '/',
		'maxage'  => strtotime('+1hour')-time(), // Set maxage
	],
	'store' => [
		'handler' => 'redis',
		'path'    => 'tcp://127.0.0.1:6379',
		'prefix'  => 'session:',
        	'ttl'	  => 3600 // 60 min
	],
	'secure' => false // Set to true if signature verification is needed.
]);

Configure for production server via php.ini file

session.session_name = sid
session.save_handler = redis
session.save_path = "tcp://127.0.0.1/?prefix=session:"
session.serialize_handler = php_serialize

; After this number of seconds, stored data will be seen as 'garbage' and
; cleaned up by the garbage collection process.
; http://php.net/session.gc-maxlifetime
; default: session.gc_maxlifetime = 1440 
; Redis Sessions use this value for setting TTL
session.gc_maxlifetime =

; Lifetime in seconds of cookie or, if 0, until browser is restarted.
; http://php.net/session.cookie-lifetime
session.cookie_lifetime =
require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';

\GeekJOB\ExpressjsSessionHandler::register([
	'secret' => 'secret key',
	'cookie' => [
		'domain'  => '.your.domain', // Share cookie through sub domains
		'path'    => '/',
	],
	'secure' => false // Set to true if signature verification is needed.
]);
