Since we are on the subject: I have the following similar problem: When testing page on internet explorer, I find that one tab's variables can affect another tab's variables. Thus when having the same web-site open and using SESSION variables but for different users, Internet explorer can become "disorientated". This also "sometimes" happen when I have two separate browsing windows open with Internet Explorer for the same site.
I have yet to determine if this is an internet explorer, or PHP or combination of the two that is causing this condition. To my understanding _SESSION variables should be maintained per session, tab or window. If this has been addressed already, my apologies, but thought it worthwhile to mention. If someone perhaps have a solution or can confirm this as a known issue and maybe is the same or related to Angelo's problem? -----Original Message----- From: Angelo Zanetti [mailto:ang...@zlogic.co.za] Sent: 20 August 2009 08:53 AM To: 'Ben Dunlap' Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: [PHP] SESSIONS lost sometimes -----Original Message----- From: Ben Dunlap [mailto:bdun...@agentintellect.com] Sent: 19 August 2009 08:18 PM To: Angelo Zanetti Cc: email@example.com Subject: Re: [PHP] SESSIONS lost sometimes > We have a server with a site that does some XML calls.

I have read in other Can you clarify what you mean by "losing sessions"? Have you taken a network trace to see whether the client is consistently sending the session ID with every request? When the problem happens, is $_SESSION completely empty or is it only missing some variables? Does it seem to happen on any page, or only certain ones? Thanks, Ben Hi Ben, When the problem happens the $_SESSION is partially empty. It only has the some of the variables set. It happens on a certain page only, but the strange thing is that it never happened before its only happening now. But the code hasn't changed so is it safe to assume that it's a server issue?
