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();
