For anyone who might run into this issue in the future, I changed my Driver in session config to "native" and it seems to work now, not sure if the "memcached" driver option tries to bypass the native php session support on the server?
I have same problem. I switched to native and sessions work, so now it will use the native config I defined in php.ini?
Actually I was wrong, I found out today that sessions have been saving in the storage directory when you choose "native" - "native" has been changed to just mean "file"... I am successfully still using memcached for Cache, however it will not work correctly for session data...so I am still having this issue, and it seems others are too
I was debugging it a bit today, and I can see that sessions are being stored in memcached, but never recovered, in other words I am seeing the normal "put" commands inserting the sessions, but no "get" commands, not even a miss
Solved in my case, the session lifetime was set too high, someone thought it was in seconds, turns out it is minutes, so the session was set to expire in over a year, while memcached has a 30 day limit.
