Just like that.

Yes, though make sure to use quotes between the square brackets otherwise you will get an error. $_SESSION['USER_NAME'] not $_SESSION[uSER_NAME]

 

Also, make sure you have session_start at the top of your script. In order to work with sessions, this function MUST have been called.

You need to have session_start() on both pages - the one where you set the session, and the one where you are trying to receive the session.

 

It's easy enough to test, just make these two files:

setsession.php

<?php

session_start();

$_SESSION['foo'] = 'bar';

 

getsession.php

<?php

session_start();

echo $_SESSION['foo'];
