hi,
i am using php on a windows server.
was using sessions to keep track of username and password.
sessions suddenly stopped working.
i did a little testing of some other php pages on the server and it seems that
sessions is not working on any of the pages.
the code has not been changed.
help!
thanks!

where are the pages being run from............a host somewhere.
If this is outside host........ you may need to contact them and tell them that the sessions are blank.

IIS5RECYCLE is a tool by microsoft that you can just down load then then run iis5recycle / config.....there a help file that comes iwth it...but if you not hosting your web pages then this would not reply to you.

Rebooted...........Find out where  your pages are coming from.............

can you do just a simple page.

<html>
<body>

<%
Response.Write(Session.SessionID)
%>

</body>
</html>

I not sure of the php for the script would be this is ASP.

Thats a shame...........if you could find out what server im sure its iis if it is windows server............then you could at least figure out what the problem was.

Linux is a good to have your web pages....

Good luck and let us know if you need any other help
