sessions problem

I'm running 2 php applications on the same server.
In the php.ini file,
the first one need "session.save_handler = user"
and the second one need "session.save_handler = file"
to work properly.

How can I solve this problem ?
Is there a way to have a php.ini file per application ?
Or is it a way to change the save_handler at runtime ?

If one or both of them is/are an Apache webserver then you can use the php_value directive in the apache config file.

As far as I know, it only looks for php.ini in the normal dile search method so you just need to make sure the different instances find different php.ini files (for example, you could have two identical php directories with the php program but differing php.ini files)

Agree with Mirtol, you can overwrite php.ini settings using apache conf or .htaccess


# on/off values

php_flag register_globals off
php_flag track_vars on
php_flag magic_quotes_gpc off

# string values

php_value include_path ".:/home/myincdir/"

php_value is just what I was looking for.

Thanks a lot
