- The phpbb sessions table is a HEAP table, which is a table stored in the computer's RAM isntead of on the hard disk.

- This is used for its advantages in read speed and is usually only employed for temporary data like session IDs.

- The total size of the table needs to be limited because it would otherwise hog RAM and crash the server.

- phpbb does not natively handle session expiry well.


The best general solution is some code to remove the oldest sessions when the limit is reached.
