Hi Bart,

You also have the possibility to share Chameleon session through MySQL. 
In chameleon/htdocs/common/session/ there's a mysql_session.php. If you 
rename it session.php (and configure the mysql connections), your 
session will be stocked in a MySQL database. This way, several machines 
can read them.
