I finally got php working as a module on apache 2.2.3 but last time I installed php as a module, I had problems with sessions, so this was the first thing I tried out. I have a index.php which sets a session variable and provides a link to index2.php which dumps the current session variables. The problem is that it remembers the name of the variables but not the actual value.

index.php
Code:
<?
session_start();

$uid = 2;

session_register("uid");

echo 'click <a href="index2.php">here</a>';

?>


index2.php
Code:
<?
session_start();

if(!session_is_registered("uid")){
   echo 'no session registered!';
} else {
   echo '<pre>';
   print_r($_SESSION);
   echo '</pre>';
}

?>


The problem is all that is dumped to the screen on index2.php is

Code:
Array
(
    [uid] =>
)


Please can someone tell me how to get sessions working correctly. Thanks for anyhelp given

In your PHP.INI, where do you have the session data being saved to?

Example:
Code:
session.save_path =x:/apache2/php/session_data

Does the path actually exist, and does your webserver have permission to write to this directory?

Yes it does. Plus if it didn't it woudn't even remember the variable names. But it does remember the variable names, just not the *cough*swears*cough* Very Happy values

To set a session var please use $_SESSION['uid'] = 2;

It is not saving the information as I can manually go and open any of the session files and it hasn't stored the number 2 but it has stored the variabe name.

read out from session file
Code:
uid|N;

Thanks James Blond. It is working fine now.

Thank you so much.

How come when you register a variable with a session, it doesn't store its current value anymore?
