The table does exist in the store's database. The store runs ok so the
DSN, user and pass should be ok. I renamed the session/ folder to
I added these lines to my catalog.cfg:
Variable MYSQL_SESSIONS_YES 1
Variable SESSION_USER myuser
Variable SESSION_PASS mypass
Variable SESSION_DSN dbi:mysql:mycatalog
Message Enabling MySQL-based sessions...
Database sessions sessions.txt __SESSION_DSN__
Database sessions USER __SESSION_USER__
Database sessions PASS __SESSION_PASS__
Database sessions KEY code
Database sessions COLUMN_DEF "code=varchar(64) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY"
Database sessions COLUMN_DEF "session=text"
Database sessions COLUMN_DEF "sessionlock=VARCHAR(64) DEFAULT ''"
Database sessions COLUMN_DEF "last_accessed=TIMESTAMP(14)"
Message MySQL-based sessions not enabled.
but when I try to restart IC, it hangs after displaying the "Enabling
MySQL-based sessions..." message. I see no errors in the IC logs nor
much of interest when I try 'top'. Maybe I'm not waiting long enough,
but nothing appears to be happening. Doing a Ctrl-C, setting
MYSQL_SESSIONS_YES to zero and again restarting IC brings the store back.
It seems odd that no errors get logged and I'm not sure how to proceed ?
