I have this (display_items.php) script which should not be accessed directly . user will be directed to a login page, the login checked by a check_login.php file then successful authentication will direct the user to the display_items.php page. it works perfectly on windows server but not on linux. the display_items.php script can be accessed directly on the linux server. It may have something to do with sessions but i cannot pin point the issue at the moment  . i have attaced the php script files. Grateful if someone could point me in the right direction

 

 


 

check_login.txt display_items.txt login.txt

does that mean that the 'protected' content is displayed or does it mean that the expected response of redirecting to the login form doesn't occur and the browser stays on the display_items.php page while displaying a blank page?

You need to call session_start() before any out put is sent to the browser. (Top of the script is best place).

In check_login you hava an echo before the session_start().
