When is session data created?
In none of the installations of Piwik do we have a sessions folder in the tmp directory. For our PP it was storing it in the /tmp location so I changed the path in the php.ini file to reflect piwik/tmp/sessions. The sessions folder was created and given the proper rights. However, nothing goes into the sessions folder ever. And no new session data has been created since.
On our Prod servers the session folder also does not exist and the session data is not stored anywhere on the server (and no it is not currently set to go to the DB) though that is what we are going to do…but I need the session data to save properly first.
