Session problems

I am developing an online store who's server is WebStar and uses PhpStar on it. On my own test system. I don't have any problem executing my scripts. But on their system, I can't seem to store session variables.

This page sets the session variables:
http://www.calvarycch.org/ebstore/session.php

This page retrieves them:
http://www.calvarycch.org/ebstore/session2.php

These pages I am using just to figure out why it isn't working, hence their simplicity.
The code I am using to set the variables is the following:

<?php
      session_start();
?>

<!----All the html header stuff etc--->

<?php
      session_register("product1");
      $product1 = "foobar";
      print "The product has been registered";
?>


The code I am using to retrieve is:

<?php
      session_start();
?>

<?php
      print "Your chosen products are:\n\n";
      print $_SESSION['product1'];
?>

Thanks in advance for your help!

first try replacing this code

<?php
     session_register("product1");
     $product1 = "foobar";
     print "The product has been registered";
?>

with

<?php
     $_SESSION['product1'] = "foobar";
     if (isset($_SESSION['product1'])) {
      print "The product has been registered";
     }
     else {
      print "The product has not been registered";
     }
?>

BINGO! Thanks. I am still fairly new to PHP; I am actually a ColdFusion developer so I am still adapting to this new language (which I like a lot!).

Thanks for your help!

quite alright :)

just make sure you use

$_SESSION['varname'] = "value";

to set sessions, session_register is no longer required
