PHP Sessions on Windows

mopar003 asked
Last Modified: 2008-03-06
Loaded PHP 4.4.4 onto a Windows 2003 Web Edition Server.  All php functions work fine, except for session variables.  Smae code works fine on other servers, so I assume its a php.ini setting.  Looked and chagned everything I could find, but still cant get session variable to resolve.

code works like:
set session variable
redirect to new page
retreive session variable

Always come up empty on the Windows servers.  Any ideas where the php.ini setting is that would cause this.  Keep in mind, I do not beleive this to be a page scripting problem since it works fine when on a unix machine with PHP.
