I have bought new hosting package (linux, php) for my product site. In this hosting ,I'm facing session sharing/accessing problem in sub pages/ folders. How to resolve this?

I have tested single session in same page, it works.. but when I access the session variable in other pages , it shows empty.  What could be the problem ? Please advise.

This works fine (same page)
<?php
session_start();

print_r ($_REQUEST);

 if($_REQUEST['usr']=="ABC" && $_REQUEST['pswd']=="123"){

 $_SESSION['usr'] = "ABC";
 $_SESSION['pswd'] = "123";
 
 print_r ($_SESSION);
 exit;
 
 header("Location: content.php");
 
 }
 else{
 header("Location: niceform.php");
 }
?>

Open in new window


Here it is not working,

<?php
session_start();

print_r ($_SESSION);

if(!isset($_SESSION['usr']) || !isset($_SESSION['pswd'])){
 header("Location: niceform.php");
} 
 include 'logoff.html';

?>

I modified your code a bit and you can see it work here:  http://www.dibsplace.info/index.php  When you're 'logged in' it goes to http://www.dibsplace.info/content.php and when you're logged out it goes to http://www.dibsplace.info/niceform.php

index.php
<?php
session_start();

//print_r ($_REQUEST);

if($_REQUEST['usr']=="ABC" && $_REQUEST['pswd']=="123"){

 $_SESSION['usr'] = "ABC";
 $_SESSION['pswd'] = "123";
 
 //print_r ($_SESSION);
 //exit;
 
 header("Location: content.php");
 }
 
 else{
 $_SESSION['usr'] = "";
 $_SESSION['pswd'] = "";
 
 header("Location: niceform.php");
 }
?>

Open in new window


content.php
<?php
session_start();

print_r ($_SESSION);

if(!isset($_SESSION['usr']) || !isset($_SESSION['pswd'])){
 header("Location: niceform.php");
} 

include 'logoff.html';

?>

Open in new window


logoff.html
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

or logout <a href="index.php?usr=v&pswd=9">index.php?usr=v&pswd=9</a>

@ Dave Baldwin

I checked it looks empty again. Check the attachment.

I think session is not working the hosting.  Can you tell me how to inform them to fix?

Try this to see if it is generating a session_id.
<?php
session_start();

$sessid = session_id();

echo $sessid;
?>

Does it generate the same number if you refresh the page several times?  Or does it change?  Do you have cookies enabled in your browser?

Thanks Dave for your support so far.

I just found solution that session_path is not defined in the hosting and configured now
. Now it is working fine.

75c7b35536c97069ec7ce6eec9e696fbArray ( [Yii.CCaptchaAction.3c85ef20.site.captcha] => kanuqij [Yii.CCaptchaAction.3c85ef20.site.captchacount] => 2 [products] => [92d77c121165b256e0981213cac80aa3id] => 1 [userid] => 1 [92d77c121165b256e0981213cac80aa3userType] => Administrator [usr] => ABC [pswd] => 123 )
logoff.html

But we're really logged in?
index.php
or login index.php?usr=ABC&pswd=123
or logout index.php?usr=v&pswd=9
