Would be nice if this also checked to make sure session.save_handler wasn't set to something other than files first. I have my sessions in memcached, and this just caused a large outage on multiple wordpress sites.

Hello @matt1206,

I moved this post to it's own thread so we can address this concern separately.

I've opened internal case CPANEL-12637 to report this issue. I'll monitor the status of this case and update this thread with more information as it becomes available.

Thank you.

Thanks @cPanelMichael

EDIT: To provide a bit more background.

I have session.save_handler = memcached
and session.save_path = "tcp:127.0.0.1:11211" in the php.ini files.

During the upgrade to 64, it changed the session.save_path to the new location, while leaving memcached as the session handler.

Hello,

To update, this was fixed in cPanel version 64.0.19:

Fixed case CPANEL-12637: Leave session.save_path if session.save_handler is not files.

Thank you.
