Load balancing how to maintain session between servers?

We just implemented load balancing and server clustering in our Suite in-house.

The problem now is that the sessions are not distributed properly thus some users get logged out, I was wondering if anyone can point me to a successful Suite CRM load balanced implementation so that we can get some ideas on how to deal with the sessions.

Hi iamreb,

You need to have a “shared folder” between you instantes (could be NFS or other). Then change the ‘session_dir’ in SuiteCRM config to point to that folder. You will also need to have the ‘upload_dir’ pointing to a shared folder.

There are other constraints, please take a look at:


Hope this helps, if you have more questions, please let me know.

Thank you. I’ll give this thread a read.
