Problem with session_register

I creating session variable with this code :
<?php
  session_register("var_x");
  $var_x = "123456";

  print(" session_id() . "<BR>\n");
  print("Session variable is : $var_x");
?>

I get nothing when read that variable with this code :
<?php
  session_start();

  print("SID : " . session_id() . "<BR>\n");
  print("Session variabel is :   <BR>\n");
  print($var_x);
?>

SID is appear but print($var_x) doesn't print anything, What's wrong ?
Thanks.

before registering your variable, start it as well.

<?php
  session_start();
  session_register("var_x");
  $_SESSION["var_x"] = "123456";

You con't have to use session_register anymore! it may be removed from future versions of PHP so you're better of not using it anymore.

You can do it like this:

<?php
session_start(); // start the session
$_SESSION['myvariable'] = 123; // store "123" in "myvariable" in the session
?>

on each next page you can use $_SESSION['myvariable'] to use that variable (make sure you used session_start() first!)

I had fix it myself.
The problem is in php.ini

Then I change to my local drive.
