Ok, I have never, in my entire life, have such a persistant little freakin problem with a programming language... It started out while i was running 4.1.2 where sessions would not write to the disk properly. I researched and found a bug. I couldnt get php properly upgraded... dont know why so i had to whip out the whole system and start from scratch. After doing this I am now running Apache 1.3.26, php 4.2.1 and the os is Freebsd 4.6-Release, platform i386.
I just want to do some simple authentication with sessions so this is the session code in the script: $start_time = mktime(); error_reporting(2047); session_start(); session_register("encrypted"); session_register("user"); session_register("start_time"); session_register("cdomain"); session_write_close(); header("Location: blalbalballafdskljf"); i even tried that same code but instead of using session_register i assigned the vars manually by doing like $_SESSION['encrypted'] = $encrypted; but that produced the same errors as using session_register. I tried with reg_globals on and off. no difference. Its set to write in the /tmp directory which has the following permissions. drwxrwxrwt 3 root wheel 512 Jun 21 13:00 tmp I also tried changing it to /usr/local/apache/sessions which has the permissions: drwxrwxrwx 3 nobody nobody 512 Jun 21 12:36 sessions Nothing works NOTHING AT ALL, i cant get this shit to work for the life of me and its really irritating. apache error_logs report NOTHING at all and if php has its own log i have no idea where it is..... Even if you cant directly tell me what the problem is, if there is a way to even find out what could be causeing it please let me know, this is killing me. Oh and here is the output i get when i run the script. -------- Warning: Failed to write session data (files). Please verify that the current setting of session.save_path is correct (/tmp) in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/cp/login.php on line 43 Warning: Cannot add header information - headers already sent by (output started at /usr/local/apache/htdocs/cp/login.php:43) in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/cp/login.php on line 45 --------- Thanks Rick -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
