Session persistence with a php script

+1 vote

I am trying to figure out if I can run my sessionpersistence script that I run with Apache to see if sessions persist between two tomcat sites on two separate servers. The load balancer has session persistence enabled but Iam unsure how to test it. My thought was that I would just add the following php script to check, but apparently I am doing something wrong. The script is this:

but it seems not to like it if I add it from the webapps directory or from inside a directory under that. Is there some special trick to running php from inside tomcat ? I have tomcat set up the same on both servers and am fronting it with Apache if that adds options for me.

1) Tomcat is meant to run Servlet based Java apps, not PHP. Use Apache HTTPD to run PHP.
2) Just use the manager application that is bundled with Tomcat to check sessions.

You really don't want to run PHP from inside of Tomcat. It can be done, and probably the cleanest way to do it is to add the executable init-param to the cgi servlet and point it to php.

  1. copy the cgi servlet definition out of web.xml and add it to your web.xml
  2. add the init-param for PHP
  3. make sure to mark your context as privileged

This will make your application Tomcat-specific. You could edit the distributed web.xml in $CATALINA_BASE/conf, but then that Tomcat could only run PHP (and not the default perl).

I am having trouble with session vars. I'm trying to implement the credit card direct pay method outlined here...

Basically, page 1 is my form that goes outside my site to the cc gateway company then comes back with a result... (PG2)

Problem: if I try to create session vars on page 1 - they don't work on page 2.

Am I correct in thinking that when this process leaves my site and goes to the gateway, then returns, it is similar to creating a new session and that is why the session vars don't remain active?
