      // with sqlite3, such as sqlite3-offline
      driver: sqlite3.Database,
      // for in-memory database
      // path: ':memory:'
      path: '/tmp/sqlite.db',
      // Session TTL in milliseconds
      ttl: 1234,
      // (optional) Session id prefix. Default is no prefix.
      prefix: 'sess:',
      // (optional) Adjusts the cleanup timer in milliseconds for deleting expired session rows.
      // Default is 5 minutes.
      cleanupInterval: 300000
    //... don't forget other expres-session options you might need
