Session persistance

Recommended Posts

Alright, I am feeling really dumb right now, but I can't get my session to be persistent. Am I failing to set something, or some strange thing?

Is the session cookie supposed to be automatically set, or am I supposed to call something? Each page calls session_start(), and if there is any validation of the user's login, the session_id is supposed to be updated. However, checking my cookies, I don't have a PHPSESSID set. What step am I missing?

Double check that you have session support enabled by running phpinfo(); and checking your php.ini file.

Which fields should be set to on?

The one which may be a problem, that I can see, is "session.auto_start = off", but I seem to remember that being something that you'd want anyway -- also why I have to call session_start() in the first place. The "session.cookie_lifetime = 0", which I believe means infinite/when the browser closes, right?

This bug is just confusing me! I'm re-writing a previous employee's code to make it more secure, and I know sessions were working before for him. I didn't think I changed that much! *sigh*

OK well then it probably isn't a problem with your configuration, tell me how are you trying to use the sessions?  Are you assigning any session ids or names?  If so how are you starting the sesssions on subsequent pages?
