Peeking at Session Info

Posted on 2008-11-18

Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I am attempting to create a sort of master super user for my web application. One of the features of this super user is that he/she should be able to look at and edit other active users' session information. I already have the application set up so it stores every SessionID in an application-level variable so I can see all active session identifiers. Can I use this information to actually look inside and/or edit the session information for another user? If not, is there another method I can use to do this?

The easiest solution is to create your own session handler, that stores the session in the database. You then can easily access the data.

You can also use session_id() to change your current session id to an editors session id, but that's a bit tricky..

Then i read you're using .NET, disregard the part about session_id().
