CI4 running in apache server virtualhost. Failed to decode session object. - gentlemanoi - 10-21-2019

Requesting multiple connection to the server using session() will return an error.

session_start(): Failed to decode session object. Session has been destroyed

I am using a virtualhost in my wampp server to connect to the public folder of CI4. Every time I have concurrent request to the server I will get this error and will redirect to the login page because the session was destroyed. 

I also added the line below to my virtualhost to save the sessions on a specific project.
php_value session.save_path "${INSTALL_DIR}/www/CI4/writable/session"

I got this error on php logs:

Quote:PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught ErrorException: Unknown: Cannot call session save handler in a recursive manner in Unknown:0

Do you have any idea about this? or can you recommend other way to point the specific project to the public folder? I can't change my DocumentRoot because there are multiple projects on my server.

Must be a configuration problem because I am running file sessions on XAMPP with vhosts
with no problems.

May I know your configuration on vhosts?

I can show you one but you would need to edit it for yourself.

Code:
#--------------------------------------------------------------
# HTTP:
#--------------------------------------------------------------
<VirtualHost *:80>
    DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/ci4test/public_html"
    ServerName ci4test.local
    ServerAlias ci4test.local
    <Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/ci4test/public_html">
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

#--------------------------------------------------------------
# HTTPS:
#--------------------------------------------------------------
<VirtualHost *:443>
    DocumentRoot "C:/xampp/htdocs/ci4test/public_html"
    ServerName ci4test.local
    ServerAlias ci4test.local
    SSLEngine on
    SSLCertificateFile "conf/ssl.crt/server.crt"
    SSLCertificateKeyFile "conf/ssl.key/server.key"
    <Directory "C:/xampp/htdocs/ci4test/public_html">
        Options All
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

That's how I do it for both http:// and https://

I program using the https://

For the sessions I load it in my BaseController and extend all controllers form that.

PHP Code:
<?php
namespace App\Controllers;

/**
 * Class BaseController
 *
 * BaseController provides a convenient place for loading components
 * and performing functions that are needed by all your controllers.
 * Extend this class in any new controllers:
 *     class Home extends BaseController
 *
 * For security be sure to declare any new methods as protected or private.
 *
 * @package CodeIgniter
 */

use CodeIgniter\Controller;
use 
CodeIgniter\HTTP\RequestInterface;
use 
CodeIgniter\HTTP\ResponseInterface;
use 
Config\Services;
use 
Psr\Log\LoggerInterface;

class 
BaseController extends Controller
{

    
/**
     * An array of helpers to be loaded automatically upon
     * class instantiation. These helpers will be available
     * to all other controllers that extend BaseController.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    
protected $helpers = [
        'auth',
        'utility',
    ];

    /**
     * @var string - Holds the session instance
     */
    protected $session;

    /**
     * Constructor.
     *
     * @param RequestInterface  $request
     * @param ResponseInterface $response
     * @param LoggerInterface   $logger
     */
    
public function initController(RequestInterface $requestResponseInterface $responseLoggerInterface $logger)
    {
        
// Do Not Edit This Line
        
parent::initController($request$response$logger);

        
//--------------------------------------------------------------------
        // Preload any models, libraries, etc, here.
        //--------------------------------------------------------------------
        // E.g.:
        // $this->session = \Config\Services::session();

        // Ensure that the session is started and running
        if (session_status() == PHP_SESSION_NONE)
        {
            $this->session Services::session();
        }
    }

}

Hope that helps, you can use the session helper method or use regular session globals.

I use Ajax and think that a separate PHP instance is started and does not recognise the parent constants and they have to be declared again Sad

Yes. That's why I always got this error.
