I am trying to register session variables in the following way:
$_SESSION['myname'] = 'Burnsy';
When i set them and then output the following on the same script:
.. it works, but when I navigate to a different page from the one that
sets the variables it doesnt remember them and I get an error message:
Notice: Undefined index: myname in C:\webserver\Apache2\htdocs\admin
\includes\include.AuthProcess.php on line 20
I have DEFINETELY remembered to use session_start() at the very start
of my scripts. I am setting the variables inside a class but Im
echo'ing then from the running script .. should this matter? Do I need
to do anything in php.ini or something like that? Is it maybe using
cookies for sessions? If so, I dont know a great deal about this ..
please briefly explian what I should do. Any help would be much
