I've read the docs on session handling but still can't figure this one
out. I'm guessing it's a setting in php.ini or something.
I've inherited this code from someone, and it's got a typical login/set
session/redirect. on the live server, it works fine. on my local computer,
in the login script, the session is being created correctly, as print_r()
shows me. but when it redirects to the next page, I get "Undefined variable:
_SESSION" when i do a print_r on it. I've added session_start() to that
page, but then all I get is an empty session array.
Here's the pertinent chunk of code i inherited in the login page:
// Start the session, register the values & redirect.
//ini_set ('session.use_cookies', 0);
$_SESSION['first_name'] = $row;
$_SESSION['user_id'] = $row;
header ("Location: http://" . $root . "/photogallery/admin.php?" .
Any of this sound like a familiar problem?
Thanks a lot.
Re: basic session question
session_start() on any of this dude's other pages, but the docs told me i
needed it so i started putting them in, but it didn't fix it. once i got
rid of that session_name() call, things started working. now i understand
what's going on.
