Solved Magento 1.6 MySQL core_session table size grows fast

After upgrade magento from to

In Phpmyadmin I just notice the size of core_session table grows fast than normal

I trustate data in core_session now , before , it reach 450MB and 250MB ….

Unknow what happen , at last have to ask a friend , he told me :

We do not recommend storing sessions in the database unless running a multi-store. You should see a performance benefit from storing sessions in the file-system. You can do this by editing your app/etc/local.xml, line 51 below.


Change to:


You may need to clear var/cache and can potentially truncate the core_session table subsequent to this change. This will be our only recommended solution to the issue you are describing.

I do according he says , it is work !

Magento 1.6 install google content api issue

Recently install the google content API module into my magento

My idea is to upload some products to google base only , the installation is not easy , I have to create lots of attributes to meet google feed’s requirement ,

Uncategorized-Magento 1.6 install google content api issue -1

But finally when i finish everything I get error code :

Error code: auth/frontend/whitelisted. Internal reason: Customer xxxxxxx has not been whitelisted for the Content API for Shopping.

Uncategorized-Magento 1.6 install google content api issue -2

I search info and know that I need to apply the whitelist permission from google ( Unknow why they create such a useful API but not allow people use it ! )

But after writing a long email , google staffs just reply as below :

Dear winsion,

The answer is polite but without any explains on why not allow . 🙁  That make me quite disappoint .
