Dear all,

Looking for the best method to create a unique id for each user who visits the website (each time they revisit they are assigned a new unique id).

Reason behind the question is i'm in the process of building an online shopping store were users / customers do not require to log in before making a purchase.

This unique id will be used to identify the contents of each users shopping carts / payment methods etc...

I had thought of using the default php session id and then store that in a db table but i surely thought there would be a better solution which is solely php related.

Any suggestions / ideas / solutions would be most welcomed....

Thankyou for your time
