You could also try to set your session variables to nothing:

$_SESSION['userid'] = '';

I am already using session_regenrate but still the problem same..

Please check the code below,...and suggest any changes required.
session_destroy();

session_regenerate_id();
 

unset($_SESSION['userid']);

unset($_SESSION['ip']);

unset($_SESSION['DB_Key']);

unset($_SESSION['accept']);
 
 

function UpdateSessID() {

    $old_sess_id = session_id();

    session_regenerate_id(false);

    $new_sess_id = session_id();
 

    $query = "UPDATE `session_table` SET `session_id` = '$new_sess_id' WHERE session_id = '$old_sess_id'";

        mysql_query($query);

}
 
 

session_destroy();
