Sean, What's going on in incl.php. Are you issuing a session_start()?
What if it's rearranged like so, as I understand you have to register the session variable before using it. include("incl.php"); session_start(); session_register("mine"); $mine++; echo $mine; There's the divide and conquer approach too. What do you see if you comment out the include, then issue a phpinfo() and a die()?
