In my System user logged in over combobox with cakephp 4.4.11 and db Session and apcu as well.
I try for days to prevent user not to logged in twice at the same time on different systems.
Did somebody got a fine solution or do I have to reinvent the wheel?
Thanks in advanced
I found a solution. Thanks anyway.
Could you share your solution in case it might help others?
Hi all. I can say if somebody got interested and need this, then please contact me, I will answer. Thanks a lot.
- Setup database session table. In which user are stored while the are logged in.
in app.php setup this:
'Session' => [
'defaults' => 'database',
'cookie' => 'mycookiename',
'timeout' => 720,
'checkAgent' => false,
'autoRegenerate' => true,
'handler' => [
'engine' => 'ComboSession',
'model' => 'Sessions',
'cache' => 'apc'
and in cache add this:
‘apc’ => [
‘engine’ => ‘Apcu’,
‘prefix’ => ‘any_’,
Now after a new user logged in checkout the session table is he/she logged in already?
If so, then add a remark in the the session-table e.g.: loghimout or something.
in your app.php checkout whether user has this remark in his session, if so then log him out.
That means, if a user logged in and then try to login in a other system/browser or something. All previous sessions will be destroyed.
I hope that’s helps you. My problem was in the session data table the data column have had the type blob but it was to short and has been cut. so I change to longblob and that’s it.
