I have this site, that does not want to trap and keep session & class vars.

The back-end (SSH & FTP) are on a short time-out, so logging in is frequent, I wonder if the ISP also set the front-end the same, maybe explaining my problem, but not sure.

A friend suggested I use MySQL to trap the class and session vars. He uses that method due to load balancing. Not sure if this fixes it, if front-end logout is forced.

I have no experience doing such a thing, so am wondering where I can find good examples and HOWTOs. Did search, but didn't get much. Suppose I'm using the wrong key words.

A little help here would be appreciated.
