Can anyone tell me how to pass variables from HTTPS to HTTP...

Im using this:

[a href=\"https://dataencrypted.com/scormsource/classes/access_user/authenticated.php\" target=\"_blank\"]https://dataencrypted.com/scormsource/class...thenticated.php[/a]

[a href=\"http://www.scormsource.com/classes/access_user/read.php?PHPSESSID=<?=$PHPSESSID?>\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.scormsource.com/classes/access_...;PHPSESSID?>[/a]

Im getting this error

Warning: session_start(): The session id contains invalid characters, valid characters are only a-z, A-Z and 0-9 in /home/apex/scormsource-www/classes/access_user/access_user_class.php on line 24

Are you looking to pass form variables or session information? Do you have a snippet of code for us to look at?

If you're looking to pass session information between the two protocols, you'll need to pass your session information in your URL:

$sid = session_name() . '=' . session_id();

<a href="https://somepage.php?<?=$sid?>">My Page</a>

This works from http to https and https to http. From a security standpoint, not generally a good idea to expose your session ID in the URL, but this is the only way I have personally found to do it in the websites I've coded.
