Just because you created a session variable in PHP, using this statement:
session_start(); // store session variables to designate that the user is successfully logged in! $_SESSION["login"] = TRUE; $_SESSION["username"] = $varUserName;
doesn’t mean you can automatically access the $_SESSION(“login”) variable from another program!
In ASP, once the session variable is created, you’re good to go and can access it immediately from any other program.
value = Session("username") ' this works fine in ASP, no need for a session_start()
In PHP, you must also use the command
before you can use the $_SESSION variable you created…
So session_start() is not just needed when you want to create a new session variable, it’s also needed when you want to access your session variables.
I guess I should put this command in my include/common.php file, so it’s always available to me and not have to worry about whether it was set or not. Just session_start it automatically for all users!
