I need to destroy a session in the browser so when they log out it clears

But it doesn’t seem to do it as the browser keeps the same PHPSessionID.

What is the best way to destroy a session and generate a new sessionid
without having to close the browser and go back again?

the session_id and the session-data is not the same, the session-data is destroyed with session_destroy() but the session_id is kept within a cookie (or as an url-parameter)

you can php tell to user another session_id, but this changes nothing than the id, it makes no sense for you, except you saved the session_id in any logging-facility and thats the reason why you always need a new session_id.
