I don't know if there is a method to tracke active sessions on the server, other than the method I suggest. The problem I mention is that when a user is in your web site (having logged in) but does not log-out. That is, the user simply types in another web-site outside of your site or selects a new web-site from the Favorites or Bookmarks list in the browser. Your app would not know that the user left.
Somebody else previously suggested tracking the last time a user changed pages within your web-site; if a uses hasn't changed pages within the last 10 minutes, then assume the user has left your web-site and decrease the number of users by 1. -----Original Message----- From: V [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]] Sent: Wednesday, February 13, 2002 8:38 AM To: 'V'; [EMAIL PROTECTED]; Rick Emery Subject: RE: [PHP] How can i count the number of users logged in my system Ok, but i'm using sessions. My users log in the system, there is no anonymous navigation. So i was thinking something about tracking the number of active sessions. I don't know how to do that. ┐Any ideas?.
