Zebra_Session is a PHP class that acts as a wrapper for PHP’s default session handling functions. Instead of storing session data in flat files, it stores them in a MySQL database, thus providing both better security and better performance. The Zebra_Session class is also a solution for applications that are scaled across multiple Web servers (using a load balancer or a round-robin DNS) and where the user’s session data needs to be available, since storing sessions in a database makes them available to all of the servers. Zebra_Session‘s code is heavily commented and generates no warnings, errors, or notices when PHP’s error reporting level is set to E_ALL.
phpLogin is a user login and authentication module for the phpNova framework. It contains all user authentication-related tasks and UI. Dependencies include: phpSession, phpHash, and phpSQL. This module is part of the phpNova framework for PHP, which is currently in the alpha stages of development.
