Thanks for answering but which one would i track for LBing? Horde?

The main issue is that i can't seem to get another sessionhandler working. I 
tried memcache and get errors (see previous email) and then i tried using the 
mysql db that i was already using for pref on the localhost and i get these errors:


Feb 20 23:03:07 HORDE [error] [imp] Error writing session data [on line 144 of 


[Tue Feb 20 23:03:08 2007] [notice] child pid 26124 exit signal Segmentation 
fault (11)

And sessionhandler table is type InnoDB.

Do you have any idea why i can't get any other sessionhandler to work other the 
the basic php file-based?

I'm getting very frustrated here as if i can't another sessionhandler method 
working i have to figure out wich cookie value to use as the "sticky" for the 
LoadBalancer. And thus the motivation of this question.
