Session variable contains blank data on hosted site

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm encountering a strange problem. Session variables on my hosted site is getting corrupted. However, on the local site it works without any problems.

I ran phpinfo on both systems:
hosted site
session.save_path /tmp /tmp
session.use_trans_sid On On


On the local system
session.save_path novalue novalue
session.use_trans_sid Off Off

Also the tmp directory was missing on the hosted site, so I created
one, not sure about the path.

Would anyone have any ideas on what might be happening to cause this problem?
Thanks in advance
JRS

Could you check also whether [b]register_globals[/b] is on or off on both sites too. As I have feeling your webshot has this enabled and you been coding with register_globals off on your local server, or vise versa

Wildteen,

You were right - Register Globals on the hosted site is ON, it is OFF on the local site. I'll have to go read about register globals to figure out what this means.

Thanks for your help.

FYI: Take a look at the session troubleshooting guide I wrote:
