jodunno Posted December 30, 2022 Share Posted December 30, 2022 Hi everyone, I am having a problem with a xampp php installation regarding session file generation using firefox browser. problem: i create a session variable which acts as a token on the server side. The token is used to display an image, then the token (session array key) is deleted. Thus, i am able to prevent access to protected images. Everything is working, in Edge and Chrome. Whenever i use firefox browser to test the site on xampp, i notice a session file creation in the tmp file. I go to Tools > Page Info > Media tab. My images do not appear in the media tab (which is good because they are protected.) However, every time that i click on one of the media links in the tab, a new session file is created in the tmp directory of my xampp installation (size 0bytes). It seems like PHP or xampp is not managing sessions correctly. A new session is started for each image requested from the firefox pageinfo media tab. Should i report this to xampp or is there another reason why this is happening? should i manually set session handlers? has anyone else noticed this problem? Thank you, John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
