Hello

I have a site that uses session variables to determine what is displayed to diffrent users according to rights, it works fine in the root directory but as soon as i move asp pages in  folder it no longers seems to accessing the session variables.

Has any one got any ideas why this is and how i can solve the problem

Thanks

hi,

  just a guess:

1. you might want to check if the browser has cookies enabled.
2. you might want to check if you pages hardcode some cookie locations, or the cookies are created in one folder then access in another.

Cheers,
Zhen

The only thing that springs to mind is - are you including another script that starts the session? Is this script still being correctly included when you move the files into a folder?

If you include "includes/session.asp" then from one folder this will work, but from the other folder you'd need to include "../includes/session.asp"

Are the other directories set up in the same application?

Yes there are other directories in the same www folder. One thing is strange that it is working for some folders and not for other. i.e.when  i put  the asp page which is using session variables  in one folder the session values are retained and getting displayed correctly while  when I put it another folder the same values are not getting displayed.

Use server.transfer instead of redirect...

Sorry, wrong question..

Make sure the directory isn't set up as another application in IIS.
