I've been making a web page that uses PHP session variables for user logins. I've organized it so that each page 'includes' the menu which displays its content based on the user login session variable. So, for example, the index page uses virtual() to include the menu code.

The login scripts all work and give me back session variable values correctly, but the 'included' menu code isn't receiving the new session variable values.

Last night at about 5:30am - it miraculously decides to work! 5 minutes later - it stops...

Because it worked for a time, I know the scripts work correctly. At the time, I had restarted Apache after looking at the config file. Would there be any setting in Apache that would keep this included code from having access to session variables?

Just in case anyone's interested - I found out what my problem was:

"session_start() ; " needs to be the FIRST element in the body of each web page when using virtual() to include content. Otherwise, session variables won't be accessible by all content.
