Post your question to a community of 470,862 developers. It's quick & easy.

Checking if session id is a current session.

I am currently developing a shopping cart application. When a user is
not logged into the system and they add something to their cart, it is
stored in the database with their session id (so that their items can
be kept while they are not logged in). If user is logged in, it just
stores their items with their unique customer id.

I want to be able to clear out the baskets of sessions that are no
longer active (expired). I will write a cron job to do this.

My question is:
If a have an actual session id is there a way to see if it is still an
active session?

as far as I know ther is session.save_path in phpinfo() wich contains
directory to tmp apache data. Sessions must be stored there with
session id as a name
