Thanks a lot Kevin. Frankly I have been working on this server for like 1
week, this is RT3.8 on Ubuntu 11.04 (terrible, I know), it has no GUI
installed (no problem for me), mysql 5.1 and the administrator has left
almost for 1 year, so no support for long time. The auto logoff was not
set, we are planning to find all the problems, announce downtime (this
server is being used globally) and make changes, I am planning to set the
autologoff too. But now, how can I at least manually clean this session
table? is there any way? (I am new to this RT, so I am really not sure how
it works yet, I am studying it and I know that this data on session table
is really useless for future)
