Exclamation storing session in the database with session_set_save_handler (Zend Cert)


Can anyone advise me with regards to this question from a mock zend exam. The PHP docs make it clear what session_set_save_handler does, but the question is awkwardly worded.

If you would like to store your session in the database, you would do which of the following?
  1. It requires a custom PHP extension to change the session handler
  2. Implement the session_set_save_handler() function
  3. Create functions for each session handling step and use session_set_save_handler() to override PHP's internal settings
  4. Configure the session.save_handler INI directive to your session class
I can't see the distinction between options 2 and 3 here, so maybe someone can advise me if they have been in this position before?
