Summary

Provides a MySQL Session store for Node.js and Express.

node-logger

Installation

Setup a session table in your database;

CREATE TABLE `sessions` (
  `id` int(11) unsigned NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `expires` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `data` text,
  `sid` varchar(120) DEFAULT NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=399 DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

Then just copy the SqlSessionStore.js file into your project, and then use

var SqlSessionStore = require('./node/models/SqlSessionStore.js')(express);

Usage

Usage is quite simple, the following shows a full example;

var express = require('express');
var SqlSessionStore = require('./node/models/SqlSessionStore.js')(express);

var app = express();

//noinspection JSValidateTypes
app.configure(function()
{
    app.set('port', process.env.PORT || 3030);
    app.use(express.favicon(__dirname + '/public/favicon.ico'));
    app.use(express.cookieParser());

    app.use(express.session({
        cookie: {
            path: '/admin/',
            httpOnly: false,
            maxAge: null
        },
        secret: "yourpasword",
        store: new SqlSessionStore()
    }));

    app.use(express.bodyParser());
    app.use(express.methodOverride());
    app.use(app.router);
    app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'public')));
});

Requirements

Requires AdAstra's node-logger (https://github.com/adastra/node-logger) for logging calls, though this is easily remove if you wish to use a different solution.

Also requires AdAstra's MySQL database manager class (https://github.com/adastra/node-mysql-database-manager)
