Session timestamp not updating


I am using DB table to store session. Whenever I access any page in website, ‘expire’ value in ‘session’ table is getting updated.

I store a value in the session using the following api:

Yii::$app->session->set("key", $value);

After I use this command, session ‘expire’ is not updating in database.

Another problem is that the stored value in session is only accessible during the same request.

Next request that value is not there in the session.

I google’d and tried all my luck but not able to figure why this is happening.

Thanks in advance

Do you have cookies enabled? Is your session backend OK? i.e. do you have permissions to write session temp files?
