Shared sessions for Laravel 4.2 app and Laravel 5.2 app

Hi,

I have eshop that is written in Laravel 4.2. Now I need absolutely deffirent app that will be based on Laravel 5.2. I need to place login on both projects, but users do not need to login twice. So I have one VPS, and one domain, example doman.com. So I created 2 virtual host:

domain.com - eshop: Laravel 4.2 afiliate.domain.com - new app: Laravel 5.2

I red some tutorials, so I change Session driver from file to database, create session migration and database table. Than I changed both config/session.php files like this:

Laravel 4.2

    |            "memcached", "redis", "array"

On eshop(laravel 4.2) I am using default laravel Auth class. It is any possible solution, that this two applications will share sessions without using OAuth or other solutions of this kind? I would like to do something like this:

Eshop Laravel 4.2 Session:put('lol', 2);

Affiliate Laravel 5.2 Session:get('lol');

Thanks in advance for answers.

Is someone in this community who can deal with this situation?

In my opinion it is not possible.

If session are stored in a common location (redis for example) and you set/get the session with the same key it's possible. Question is how you pass the key to both application safely. I leave you to that. But yes its possible.

I have the same problem here! did you pass the key on both apps? how do you do that?
