3.84. SessionType

The type of session management to be used. Use one of the following:

   DB_File     Berkeley DB
   DBI         DBI (don't use this, normally)
   File        File-based sessions (the default)
   NFS         File-based sessions, forces use of fcntl locking
   GDBM        GDBM

The default is file-based sessions, which provides the best performance and reliability in most environments.

If you are planning on running Interchange servers with an NFS-mounted filesystem as the session target, you must set SessionType to "NFS". The other requisites are usually:

1. fcntl() supported in Perl 2. lock daemon running on NFS server system 3. lock daemon running on Interchange server
