PHP Session continuity across http:// --> httpS://

when i switch to a secure page within the same site, my SESSION variables become invisible to that page, yet, when i go back to a standard http:// page, they're there.
How can i access them across the change to https://

thanks

you need to destroy specific session variable
unset session if you dont want them anymore when you switch to https to http

the problem was KEEPing the session vars when changing contexts.
sending SessID as a GET parameter to be restored seems to be the ticket.
thanks
