newbie: rails3 session & access via php

hi, im having a working rails3 app with devise. on the subdomain (same server) i have a phpscript which i need to use. i do currently use cookie stores. when im not logged into rails, then the output of my php script looks like this: Array ( [0] => {"_csrf_token"1dbm4TrxUPTLaNA39YtIu92pPoDiNy6pRIrhmwjOYYg0="session_id"%0e4d83ea31b16dd4e2c164671961c073"user_return_to"/home" [flashIC:%ActionDispatch::Flash::FlashHash{] => [alert"6You need to sign in or sign up before continuing.] => [@usedo:Set] => [1] => @hash{;T ) 1

being logged in, it looks like that: Array ( [0] => { ["_csrf_token"1dbm4TrxUPTLaNA39YtIu92pPoDiNy6pRIrhmwjOYYg0="session_id"%a1220894b4372e1656768900657e9bdc"warden.user.user.key[" User[i""$2a$10$zDfB1jyHfLOa1LzzkgDLYe"warden.user.user.session{"last_request_atIu] => Time ká€ØC©:marshal_with_utc_coercionT" [flashIC:%ActionDispatch::Flash::FlashHash{:notice"Signed in successfully.] => [@usedo:Set] => [1] => @hash{;T ) 1

now i guess my question is: 1) how can i associate a user with the phpinformation about the session? (how does rails do it? 2) should i go with active-record-session-store and add the user_id there?


I think yes. You should store your session to database and access it via php.

u mean no two? and then pass the sessionid via url? thx

hi, i switched to activerecord store and im using devise. def after_sign_in_path_for(resource)   puts "...............................................after_sign_in_path_for"   puts request.session_options[:id].to_s

i get no session information, althought the code works fine in the view

any ideas? thx
