Im trying to test if a variable is the same as another vairable:-
if ($_SESSION['loggedIn'] == $authKey) {

Which its saying it is, however it shouldn't, to debug I added:-
		echo "authKey = " . $authKey . "<br/>";
		echo "SESSION loggedIn - " . $_SESSION['loggedIn'] . "<br/>";

Which returns:-

authKey = 5f8e4f8b-f7db-4c6c-8beb-0336a7e1b443
SESSION loggedIn - 1

And then to test further I used:-
		if ($_SESSION['loggedIn'] == $authKey) {
			echo "T";
		} else {
			echo "F";
		}

Which returns T.

I dont understand why its returning that it is the same, when it isnt.

Any ideas how to fix it and why its happening?
