php sessions under php 7 and cmsb v3.53
I facing problem with PHP session variables under php 7.2 and cmsB v3.53
Using the attached script that I "require" at the top of every page for multi language management purposes.
For some reason the php sessions cannot keep the value after i reload or navigate to other page.
Any help will be appreciated,
This is something that can happen if your server is trying to include/require the file as a "URL" rather than a local file. I'm not sure exactly why this sometimes happens, but I've been able to resolve the issue in the past by adding a "./" to the front of the include/require path, changing from something like this:
<?php require "languages.php"; ?>
<?php require "./languages.php"; ?>
Another option is to use the full local path to the file (starting with "C:/" on Windows or "/" on Linux), though that can be more complicated to maintain.
Let me know if that helps with your issue!
I tried testing your script locally on PHP 7.2.4 and was unfortunately unable to reproduce the results - this is pretty typical session use, so I can't think of anything obvious that would cause you to lose the values.
Could you show me an example of a page that requires languages.php? This might provide some additional clues, or at least help rule out if this is a code issue vs. a server config issue.
By default session variables are stored in the gobal /tmp directory on unix based systems. Housekeeping routines at the server level can clear the /tmp directory on a regular basis. If possible use the users home tmp directory in session.save_path instead of the default.
