I am not retaining $_SESSION["varname"]

Problems with the Windows version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

I am not retaining $_SESSION["varname"]

Postby ralph.rose » 22. April 2010 03:56

I ran a PHP program involving a number of pages, but session variables are not being retained. Test case is start session with session_start(), and define some session variables and post to second page and session variable are not defined. Checked them with isset($_SESSION["conn"]). I could have been using XAMPP lite but am switching over to also have tomcat with add on.

Some more information about your code would be very helpful (sourcecode of your pages for example).

This can be a problem with:
- short_open_tags
- wrong Syntax (how about error_reporting? already tried to echo out a Session variable right after setting them?)
- forgotten session_start() function on your second page
- wrong place for the session_start() function (must be the very first on every page)
