  • 3. Session • A continuous period of access, unique to each user that requests a PHP page from a website
  • 4. How do ‘Sessions’ work? • Each user is assigned a unique number, or session id, e.g. • Session data is stored in a text file on the server – Filename is sess_sessionid • Session data can be accessed through a PHP superglobal, $_SESSION.
  • 5. Starting or Resuming a Session session_start(); • Must be called before any output to browser • Must be called on every page that will participate in the session – If session_start() is not called, session data will not be available • No parameters • No return value
  • 6. Starting or Resuming a Session session_start(); • PHP looks for a valid session id in the $_COOKIE or $_GET superglobals • If found, it loads the registered session variables • If none found, a new session id is created
  • 7. Storing Session Data • The $_SESSION superglobal array can be used to store any session data. $_SESSION['name'] = $name; $_SESSION['age'] = $age;
  • 8. Reading Session Data • Data is simply read back from the $_SESSION superglobal array. $name = $_SESSION['name']; $age = $_SESSION['age'];
  • 9. Destroying a Session Often not required, but if we want to destroy a session: // unset one session variable unset($_SESSION[‘username’]); // clear all session variables $_SESSION = array(); // destroy session session_destroy();
  • 10. Try • Navigate to login • Login with username: bob, password: b123 • Copy/paste the URL to another tab in the same browser • Close the browser and reopen it. Does it remember you? • Paste the URL into another browser. What happens
