session_module_name - Get and/or set the current session module

session_module_name( [string|null$module = null] ): string|false

session_module_name gets the name of the current session module, which is also known as session.save_handler.



If module is specified and not null, that module will be used instead. Passing "user" to this parameter is forbidden. Instead session_set_save_handler has to be called to set a user defined session handler.

Return Values

Returns the name of the current session module, or false on failure.


Version Description
8.0.0 module is nullable now.
7.2.0 It is now explicitly forbidden to set the module name to "user". Formerly, this has been silently ignored.
