Hi, Ok, i am working on a log in script for a site but am having some problems with sessions. I have the form and the php which goes to the mysql server to check if there details are correct but I am having problems sorting out the seesion. After the results have come back saying that there details are correct I have put,
First you should make sure that sessions are supported by your server and that cookies are enabled on your computer.
Also I would recommend using a php redirect instead of an HTML one. This would look like:
For a PHP redirect to work make sure that there is no preceding output to the browser.
Exactly what "whatmonkey" wrote is correct. Every page has to have the "session_start()" as the FIRST statement on your page – even before any spaces or anything else.
Secondly what I fell over some time ago was, that the session management i.e. of firefox does start a new session each time you open a "new" tab i.e. by pressing <ctrl + t> but does use the existing session id of "your current site" if you just forward to a new tab using a link or so.
You have to make sure that the tab you use is using the same session like the one you expect it to be since otherwise the saved variables of session "A" will not be available on session "B".
