In my php.ini
I've enabled session.use_cookies=1
Everytime I initialize a session, it create the session storage file in
At the top my script, I've added session_start ();
In my test login function, this was what I did:
$_SESSION['username'] = 'abcdef';
session_set_cookie_params (time () + 3600);
Whereas, in my logout function:
setcookie ('PHPSESSID', '', time () -1);
Everytime I load this page, this is what it does:
Everytime load this page a session id is generated, which means, a
session file name sess_<current session_id> is created, and my session
variable $_SESSION['username'] get stored in there.
Now, everytime I perform a logout, it creates a sess_<session id> file
under /tmp, and when I perform a login again, it creates yet another
I'm not exactly sure why does it do this.
My intention is actually, to use register a session variable to denote
login status, and session_set_cookie_params (); to set the expiry date
for the cookie for my session.
And every the page loads, to use session_get_cookie_params (); to check
whether the cookie has expired, if it has, force for a new login (via
redirect or link), if it hasn't expired, display the appropriate
"authenticated" page content.
