Okay, I tried commenting out include, resulting in this code: session_start(); session_register("i"); $i++; echo $i; When I run the above, I get this: Fatal error: Failed to initialize session module in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/sesstest.php on line 6 Which is getting somewhere, in a way. Line 6 is session_start(); What part from phpinfo() output were you interested in? Or did you want to see all of it?
