session_save_pathGeçerli oturum kayıt yolunu tanımlar ve/veya döndürür


session_save_path(?string $yol = null): string|false

session_save_path() işlevi oturum verisini kaydetmek için kullanılan dizinin yolunu döndürür.

Bağımsız Değişkenler


Oturum verisinin kaydedileceği dizinin yolu. Belirtildiği takdirde ve null değilse, oturum verisinin kaydedildiği dizin yol olarak değiştirilir. session_save_path() işlevi bu amaçla kullanılacaksa session_start() işlevinden önce çağrılmalıdır.


Bazı işletim sistemlerinde, bu dosya yolunu küçük dosyalarla daha verimli olan dosya sistemlerinde belirtmek daha iyidir. Örneğin, Linux üzerinde küçük dosyalarla ext2fs'ten daha yüksek başarıma sahip reiserfs kullanılabilir.

Dönen Değerler

Oturum verisini saklamak için kullanılan dizinin yolunu döndürür, başarısızlık durumunda false döner.

Sürüm Bilgisi

Sürüm: Açıklama
8.0.0 yol artık null olabiliyor.

I made a folder next to the public html folder and placed these lines at the very first point in index.php

Location of session folder:


location of index.php


What I placed in index.php at line 0:

('session.save_path',realpath(dirname($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']) . '/../session'));

This is the only solution that worked for me. Hope this helps someone.

Debian does not use the default garbage collector for sessions. Instead, it sets session.gc_probability to zero and it runs a cron job to clean up old session data in the default directory.

As a result, if your site sets a custom location with session_save_path() you also need to set a value for session.gc_probability, e.g.:

ini_set('session.gc_probability', 1);

Otherwise, old files in '/home/' will never get removed!

If session.save_handler is set to files, on systems that have maximum path length limitations, when the session data file's path is too long, php may get you an error like "No such file or directory" and fails to start session, although the session-saving folder really exists on the disk.

You should:

1. Keep the session-saving folder's absolute path not too long
2. If you're with PHP 7.1+, don't set session.sid_length to a number too great, such as 255

I once got stuck with this problem on Windows and wasted hours to solve it.

Session on clustered web servers !

We had problem in PHP session handling with 2 web server cluster. Problem was one servers session data was not available in other server.

So I made a simple configuration in both server php.ini file. Changed session.save_path default value to shared folder on both servers (/mnt/session/).

It works for me. :)

This function seems to simply return the value of session.save_path from the [Session] section of php.ini. This has an important implication: the returned value can as well look like "0;0660;/var/lib/php/sessions", which is of course no valid path.

A way to extract the path despite the possible semicolons can be something like:

$ssp = explode(';', session_save_path());
echo end($ssp);

As end takes the array by reference, it's not possible to make a real one-liner without relying on an intermediate variable.

('session.save_path',realpath(dirname($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT']) . '/tmp'));
ini_set('session.gc_probability', 1);


(for using above code create a tmp folder/directory in your directory)
