[cgiapp] CAP::Session causing errors under FastCGI and Plack?

Hi Jason,

We are using CAP::Session with Plack in a dev environment (not
production) and haven't seen any issues.  Also under mod_perl and
vanilla cgi all runs fine.  Tested briefly with nginx as a front end
and seems fine too.  We're using ubuntu.  One of the guys has it
running fine on a Mac too.

sub cgiapp_init {

	my $self = shift;

	$self->init_config() or return undef;

	$self->init_log_engine() or return undef;

	my $logger = Log::Log4perl->get_logger('application.init');
	$logger->trace("init");

	# Connect to the database
	$self->dbh_config($self->cfg('db_connect'));

	$self->session_config(
		CGI_SESSION_OPTIONS => [
          	"driver:mysql;serializer:freezethaw;id:uuid",
          	$self->query,
          	{
          		Handle => $self->dbh,
          	},
          	{
          		name => 'AUTH',
          	},
          ],
          DEFAULT_EXPIRY => '+3h',
          COOKIE_PARAMS => {
          	'-name' => 'AUTH',
          	'-secure' => $self->cfg->{UseHTTPS},
          	'-httponly' => 1,
          	'-expires' => '',
          },
          SEND_COOKIE => 1,
 	);

Maybe try a different driver instead of File?

I'd test it using plackup directly to bypass the nginx and rule out
any issues there.

I'd also use Test::WWW::Mechanize::PSGI to create some kind of
check_session.t script that hits your app, logs in, does stuff, etc.
I find with my environment (eclipse) that I can then use the step
through debugger and see exactly what's going on, set breakpoints,
etc.

Hope this helps!

Mike
