Default logging out of a session

I have some code that works fine on my local machine running PHP version 4.3.6 but acts funny when I load it on the Web with a host package running PHP version 4.1.2.

It has to do with ending a session and logging out the user. The code:

--start code--

    echo "<center>Are you sure you want to logout?</center><br />";
    echo "<center><a href=logout.php?logmeout>Yes</a> | <a href=javascript:history.back()>No</a>";
} else {
        echo "<center><strong>You are now logged out!</strong></center><br />";
        echo "<center><strong>Login:</strong></center><br />";
        include 'login_form.html';
--end code--

In both cases, clicking on "Yes" takes me to URL: http://www.foo.com/project/logout.php?logmeout

Now, in PHP version 4.3.6 it triggers the ELSE section and shows that I've logged out. In the online version (PHP version 4.1.2) it just shows the same page again as if nothing happened. Only the URL changes.

Is my code only good in PHP version 4.3.6? Or is something else going wrong?

An overworked Web Developer who\'s expected to know everything yet given time to study nothing.

Try this:

Notice the "=true" appended to the URL. GET variables usually need a value to be recognized as true (as does any other variable). This may be a PHP.INI directive or a new feature/update in PHP 4.3.6
