The storage mechanism for session data. Note that despite the name saying "cache" this is the primary storage mechanism for sessions; if it doesn't work, it will be impossible to log in to the wiki.

From MediaWiki 1.20 to 1.26, it was used only if $wgSessionsInObjectCache was true, otherwise MediaWiki fell back to standard PHP session handling.

Since MediaWiki 1.27, sessions are always stored in the object cache.

For available types see $wgMainCacheType .

For proper operation this must be set to a persistent cache, and if there are multiple servers that might serve a single client's requests the cache must be shared by all of them.

If $wgMainCacheType is set to CACHE_ACCEL and this is left at its default CACHE_ANYTHING, the cache used may not meet these requirements.

The solution is to set this to an appropriate cache, such as CACHE_DB.

Note that if CACHE_DB is used then users cannot log in when the respective wiki's database was locked with e.g. $wgReadOnly .
