So I have gone through Chapter 12 a few times. This chapter shows you how to make a login functions first using cookies and then using sessions. I have no problem with creating the login functions with the cookies method using the provided scripts with this book. However when I get to the Session section the provided scripts do not work for me. When I get to Script 12.9 things stop working for example After logging in, I am supposed to be redirected to loggedin.php, which will welcome the user by name using the stored session value. It does not happen for me. Here is my cookies website that works with books files http://www.trueacewebdesign.com/larry-php/website-login-w-cookies/index.php Here is the session files website with the books files that does not work http://www.trueacewebdesign.com/larry-php/website-login-w-sessions/index.php Here is the a zip file of all the session files that has everything in place. http://www.trueacewebdesign.com/website-login-w-sessions.zip I am still a newbie to PHP. However from my understanding I do not need to turn on any special configuration for sessions to work. Note I have successfully used sessions on the same host last month form a different book so I know its not my configuration. Did I miss a step in the book? I don’t see how that is possible since I am using the files unedited from the book. Thank you JP
