PHP: Selected Checkboxes to MySQL DB Across 3 Web Pages in PHP

Newbie here. Is the following possible?

Page 1: has a form with multiple checkboxes. All checkboxes are named prop[] (for real estate property) so they can be handled as a single item on submission to Page 2.

Page 2: User can select an existing list of properties or name a new one to be created, then submit to Page 3.

Page 3: Creates a new list of properties with the selected checkboxes from Page 1, or appends to an existing property list, to be stored in a MySQL db.

I was thinking of making an array with the checked values on Page 2, but still need to pass the array to Page 3 on submission, or perhaps with session variable, then INSERT INTO MySQL db.

Mahalo for any help.

setting session variable is the way to go about this.
keep on depositing in a session variable array values from page1,page2 and page3 and after page 3 on the session array variable you have an array with value from all pages.
Or you can have 3 session variable page1_option,page2_option and page3_option and finally combine them into an array.,

Okay, I tried this for creating the session variable, but no values get stored.

/*-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$search_array = array();
            
for ($count = 0; $count <= count($_POST['prop[]']) - 1; $count++) {
   if ($_POST['prop[]'][$count] <> '') {
      $search_array = $_POST['prop[]'][$count];
   }
}

$_SESSION['$search_array'] = $search_array;
