This is pretty off-topic for the PHP-DB list.  It should be on PHP-General

If I recall correctly, the actual session files aren't deleted on the server
when you call session_destroy(); They hang around until garbage collection
kicks in. The user's cookie is also not deleted so they come back with the
same session next time if the browser isn't quit first.  One solution is to
manually unset the session variables as well.  I've done things like this:


According to php.net, you should also do:

    $_SESSION = array();

Before the calls to unset and destroy.
