Sorry, I have formulated my question extremely badly: I need to retrieve this field(no problem) and read the value with php(problem, I haven't ever met this type of input and I don't know howto handle it)

I need to retrieved session_data field from the table core_session and read the value with php?
From PhpMyAdminField structure:

session_data    mediumblob

and it lets me download it like a .bin file.

I know it isn't fully related to Magento, but maybe here someone has got a better idea on how the whole session storage process works.

  • @RobMangiafico My is about how to read that field, I thought that the fact that phpmyadmin shows it as as a bin file could be an useful information, this is the first time I handle this type of data – Razorphyn Jun 3 '15 at 20:01

I would suggest using a better mysql client:
