Default Sessions

I had sessions working and I made a few changes when installing imp and now I cannot get them to work again. i tried the examples from the pro book, and they won't run so i'm guessing its something wrong with my configuration rather than the session itself. Anyways here's a link to my info http://www.16bit-psychosis.net/info.html If anyone sees any errors please help, cause i got no clue right now

Did you ever get your sessions working? I noticed you had both user and files for session storage mgmt. It should really be just one or the other, not both.

Files is the easiest way to go -- PHP handles everything for you -- reading, writing, deleting, etc... One caveat -- the session save dir MUST exist, and have permissions set that your webserver user (or whatever user PHP runs as) can read and write in that directory.

User is a little more difficult, but gives you the flexibility to store session data however you want. Most people use custom session handler functions to store session data in a database.

In the end, it's up to you. I suggest starting out with "files" and then moving to "user" if you want the added flexibility.

Take care,
