PSR-6 defines cache items and cache item pools. This package uses a cache item pool in which to store and retrieve sessions. PSR-6 was chosen over the simpler PSR-16 as it specifically provides functionality around expiry, which allows us to expire sessions.
Install mezzio-session-cache via Composer:
$ composer require mezzio/mezzio-session-cache
You will also need to install a package that provides a PSR-6
CacheItemPoolInterface implementation. You can search for PSR-6 providers on
Packagist. We have
had excellent luck with the various implementations provided by the PHP-Cache
Generally, you will only provide configuration for this service, including
configuring a PSR-6
CacheItemPoolInterface service; mezzio-session
will then consume it via its SessionMiddleware.
