Just overwrite the session variable in the login script.

// login
// authentica
// reset session time ($_SESSION['break_time'] = 60);

I've searched the web for hours trying to figure out this problem and can't seem to find any pertinent answers. I have a website where the user starts on a login page, puts in their credentials and hits a submit button, which then takes the user to a 2nd PHP page which simply runs PHP code that checks the user's credentials from my database, and if authenticated creates a session, assigns a few session variables (including a session...

I have this line, at this time the value of Session("Login") is 1: Response.Write "<a href=" & Request("script_name") & _ "?action=show&o=" & rsCustOrders("OrderID") & _ ">" & rsCustOrders("OrderID") & "</a>" Once you click on it, it refreshes the page and goes to the following section, and somehow the value of Session("Login") is 0, hence, it ends up in the ELSE trap:

This is quite a bit of problem I am facing, and I cannot point exactly where I am going wrong. I have been lurking around at several forums with regard to login and user authentication scripts and I have got as far as this: - Starting a session - Registering a session variable - Using the variable to check if the user is authenticated or not. - Authenticating the user through MySQL database - Logging of the user, by setting the...

Hi I am having a problem with session vars being propagated between pages on this site: http://www.meettheancestors.com/sessiontest/index.php If you enter any user id and password and click Log In (no actual validation is performed), and then move around the other pages and/or keep refreshing the pages it will eventually display something that is incorrect i.e. saying your logged in when you aren't or vice versa. The exact same code...

Hi, When a user logs into our site, we create a session variable to denote the session is active and another to denote who is logged in. Once the user closes the browser and re-opens it, the session is destroyed and the variables are gone. How can I keep the session alive for 24 hours even if the user closes and re-opens the browser?
